Exams and assessments

Viva-voce examinations

You may be asked to attend an oral (viva-voce) examination in addition to the normal assessments, when further information about your performance is felt to be needed. The viva will be carried out by a panel of Programme Board members and their recommendations will be taken into account by the Board in reaching its decision.

Viva-voce examinations are not intended and are not used as a disciplinary procedure.  Students who undergo viva-voce examinations will not be disadvantaged.
