If I am sick on the day of an exam, what should I do?

Please note: A dedicated webpage for information about COVID-19, containing FAQ’s, can be accessed here.

If you are unable to sit an exam/assessment due to illness, you do not need to contact anyone on the day. You will be automatically registered for the supplemental opportunity (if available). If you are sick on the day of a supplemental exam/assessment, you will be automatically registered to repeat that module in the following academic year.

Under UCC's No Academic Disadvantage policy in 2020/2021, marks will not be capped in the Autumn supplemental examinations or assessments (except where there has been a breach of examination regulations).

Under no circumstances will an alternative exam paper/assessment be provided for students who are unable to attend an exam at the scheduled time.
