Exam timetables

The 2023-2024 Semester 2 exam timetable will be published here on 1 March 2024.

Students should note the following for Semester 1 and Semester 2 examination diets: 

  • The Semester 1 and Semester 2 institutional examination diets will offer both in-person and online exams, depending on the module. For further information about exam formats, please check your School handbook and the exam timetable.
  • Students must ensure that they are aware of the assessment requirements and arrangements for their modules.
  • Students must make themselves available for the whole of the examination diets.
  • No adjustments will be made due to travel or sitting online exams in different time zones. Exams are offered in UK time only and must be started at the scheduled UK time.

Exams on consecutive days

Students at all levels must expect to have examinations on consecutive days. 

Whilst every effort is made by the Examinations Officer to spread exams, the large number of combinations of modules in some subjects makes it impossible to avoid exams on three or more consecutive days for all students. 

Students may have two sub-honours examinations on the same day (or exceptionally one Honours exam and one sub-honours exam). 

Students will not normally have two Honours or Postgraduate examinations on the same day, but very occasionally this is unavoidable with unusual combinations of modules. 

The Examinations Officer works closely with Schools to optimise the timetable before it is released to students. Please note that no further changes, other than unavoidable changes, can be made to the timetable once the confirmed timetable has been released. 

Extra time for exams

Your personal exam timetable shows the duration for each exam including any extra writing time to which you are entitled. 

Students entitled to rest-breaks are responsible for managing these. Rest-breaks are not included on personal exam timetables.

If you are unsure of your extra time entitlement, you should confirm this by checking MySaint. If this does not appear to be correct, please contact Student Services at disability@st-andrews.ac.uk


Timetable clashes

Whilst every effort is made by Schools and the Examinations Office to prevent timetable clashes, these can occasionally occur where Schools organise assessments which are not centrally timetabled. 

Where such a clash is identified, students should contact the Examinations Office at examoff@st-andrews.ac.uk as a matter of urgency. 

Future exam diets

All matriculated students are entered automatically for the Semester 1 and Semester 2 examination diets in all examined modules which they have been advised into. 

Students are required to make themselves available for the full duration of the examination diets (up to, and including, the last day of both the Semester 1 and Semester 2 diets) and should plan travel arrangements accordingly.
