- If you have failed or missed an examination because of medical or compassionate circumstances the department may request permission for you to take the examination again ‘as if for the first time’, which means discounting the failed or missed attempt.
- Students are not normally allowed to repeat any part of the teaching on their programme. Repeat study will only be considered in cases where a student can show that they had truly exceptional circumstances which did not allow them to benefit from the teaching on their first attempt, and that there was good reason why the student could not have informed the University of the circumstances at the time.
- If you have to leave your programme because you have failed the year then you will not be permitted to restart the same programme at the University of York.

You will need to submit evidence of exceptional circumstances to qualify for resits and repeats. See 'Exceptional Circumstances Affecting Assessment'.
