Examination Rewrites

Examination rewrites will only be accepted from those who received notification of results in the X and Y grade categories. Students will only be allowed to rewrite the examination on one occasion, and it must be written in the exam session immediately following their unsuccessful attempt.

Students with a Z grade and students unsuccessful in their second attempts will be required to re-enrol as continued tuition students or re-enter a classroom program.

Rewrite results will be based on the final examination only. Classroom or tutorial marks are not carried over.

Prior to registering for an exam rewrite, where extenuating circumstances exist, students may submit a request in writing to the Registrar for an alternate exam session. The alternate session shall be the subsequent one, and the time frame from the original exam to the rewrite may not exceed one year. After one year, students are required to enrol in continued tuition.

Students can register for an exam rewrite on the website:
1.Log into your member account
