Student Policies and Regulations

Exam Policy

The Exam Policy covers how, where and when you will submit your exam, what happens if you have problems submitting your exam and what happens if you submit it late or not at all. It also outlines the additional support available to students with disabilities or additional requirements.

Guidance on sitting an exam that was previously part of the Remote Exams Handbook can now be found on the Exams pages of the Help Centre.

If you require this Exam Policy document in an alternative format, please contact your Student Support Team via (phone +44 (0)300 303 5303) if you are a current Open University student.

If you are an Apprenticeship learner please contact your Apprenticeship Enrolment and Support Team, or AEST using the following details:

For Apprenticeship Programmes in England, Scotland and Wales, Email: Telephone: 0300 3034121.

For Apprentices in Northern Ireland your most appropriate contact may be your Staff Tutor, Education Manager, or Faculty Co-ordinator.
