Returning marked examinations
Until you have collected your exam paper, it remains a public document and other people are able to request a copy of it. If you do not want others to have access to your personal details and exam answers, you should collect your exam paper as soon as it is available from the Student Affairs Office. Remember that you can collect your exam paper no earlier than two to three working days after the exam results have been published on the Student Portal.
Obtain your exam paper
You can obtain your exam paper in one of the following ways:
1. Collect it yourself
Collect it yourself from the Student Affairs Office in Building E. Bring your photo ID.
2. Ask someone else to collect it for you
Someone else can collect your exam paper for you on presentation of a fully completed Power of Attorney for Collecting an Exam (pdf). This should contain details of the examination in question, your own personal details and information about the person collecting the exam paper on your behalf. The person must be at least 18 years old and will be required to present their photo ID, along with a printed copy of your own photo ID.
Copy or original
If you have reason to believe that you need to resit your examination or have it reassessed, you should not sign out your original exam paper. Ask for a copy of it instead. Find out more about Resits and reassessment.
Exam papers are kept for two years from the date that they are written. The original is then destroyed and discarded. Usually exam papers written in the last two examination periods are available to collect from the Student Affairs Office. Exam papers older than five or six months must be ordered from the Student Affairs Office.
