Due to COVID-19 the formal Trimester B exam diet in April/May 2021 will not take place on campus.



Where applicable, module teams will design an alternative that can be undertaken while students and staff are off campus, for example an online examination, open book through GCULearn, coursework, etc.  Full details will be provided for each module on GCULearn, including the time available to students to complete.

All students should check their GCULearn module pages for details on alternative assessments, including details of the type of alternative assessment and length of period being given to complete etc.
