Resubmission of Assessed Work


If you fail the assessed work for a module or modules, you will normally be required to submit a new piece of work. Following the appropriate MA exam board (held in March, June and October), a new deadline will be set and notified to you.

Resubmitted assessed work can only be awarded a pass mark (i.e. a maximum of 50). Please note that if you obtain a lower fail mark at the second attempt, the higher mark will stand. 

Registering to resubmit

You will need to register and pay the appropriate fee for all resubmissions. More information as well as registration and payment links are available on the SSiD Postgraduate Reassessment webpage

What if I fail again after resubmission? 

If you successfully complete 165 credits of MA modules then the exam board will, at the discretion of the examiners, consider you for the award of Masters degree. Students who are not recommended for the award of a Masters degree may be eligible for the award of a Postgraduate Diploma or Certificate.
