University Of Cumbria Results

Information for students with reassessment / deferred assessment

Please read this information carefully in conjunction with your Statement of Results that has been emailed to you and is also available in the ‘My Course’ page in your Student Portal (ICON). Please refer to the academic regulations.


If you have failed a module(s), this is shown as a grade of F on your Statement of Results sent to you by email or on the Student Portal (ICON). You will also find the requirements for reassessment there.
The maximum mark recordable for a module successfully passed on reassessment is 40% (50% for postgraduate).

Most undergraduate programmes allow two reassessment opportunities unless professional body requirements only allow one, or if a student fails to attempt their first reassessment opportunity, in which case they will forfeit their second attempt. Postgraduate programmes only allow a single reassessment opportunity.

Action YOU need to take:

All coursework must be submitted. If submitting a paper copy this should be presented with a signed coversheet by 4.00pm on the date stated in your Statement of Results and on the Student Portal (ICON). This must be submitted to your local Programme Administration Office at the campus/site where you are registered.

If you are submitting by post then you must use RECORDED DELIVERY to ensure proof of postage and post by 4.00pm on the deadline date. If submitting electronically please see your relevant module and/or programme Blackboard site for further details. Please note that the 3 day late submission rule does not apply to reassessment.

If you have an exam as part of your reassessment this will take place at the campus/site where you are registered and details of any resit examinations will be sent to you by email. The exam period is fixed and no alternative arrangements will be made.

Coursework titles for reassessment

As part of your reassessment you may need to complete the coursework to a new title. These new titles can be found on Blackboard in the ‘Reassessment’ tab at the top right hand corner of the Blackboard front page. If you have any difficulties finding your reassessment title, please contact your course/module tutor.

Deferred Assessment

Your Statement of Results and Student Portal (ICON) will show if you have been offered to defer assessment that may have already been undertaken or may be incomplete. This may be due to, for example, granting of valid extenuating circumstances or other valid reasons. You will be required to submit outstanding coursework or to sit the exam as for the first time (i.e. for a full rather than capped mark). Any coursework will be to the original title.
