Exam Boards – Guidance on Processing Late Results

24 June 2022

Timeline for late approvals for inclusion in LSA and Graduation

Exam board decisions confirmed on Portico by Friday 1 July will be released to students on Thursday 7 July.  

For students with delayed results due to extended submission deadlines or outstanding Academic Misconduct cases, these do not need to wait until your LSA Board meets to be considered, as the main board may delegate authority to a Sub Board to consider out of cycle matters (see regulation 13.3.9). You should avoid Chair’s Action where it is known in advance that students cannot be considered at the Full Board; these students should be considered by a properly constituted Sub Board.  

Please contact your Student Records Manager with details and dates of any Sub Boards taking place in your Dept/Faculty.  

Please notify students whose results will not be confirmed by 1 July, that they will not receive their results email on the 7 July.  Student Records will continue to process results from the 8 July, and will aim to release results within 3-5 working days of Faculty approval.

PGT students will be expecting to receive results on the 7 July.  If you have not held an Interim Board to consider provisional marks, please let your students know that they will not be receiving their results until after the Main Exam Boards in the Autumn.
