Producing the Exam Timetables
The Central Timetabling Team produces the exam timetable based on individual students’ registration on courses. The Team wait until student course selection has finished and run the student registration numbers at the end of the second week of teaching to ensure all selections are captured.
Using specialist software, the exam timetable is calculated to ensure students don’t experience exam clashes based on their individual course choices. The timetable needs to take account of approximately 13,000 students and takes approximately six weeks to produce.
The Central Timetabling Team is required to produce the exam timetable four weeks before an exam diet commences, however the Team aims to produce the timetable to provide five weeks notice. The Team continues to explore ways to increase the notice period further
