There are a number of options available to students wanting to repeat or resit, including resitting of assessment elements or suspension of current studies. The choices available to you will depend on your individual circumstances and where you are in the academic cycle.  


Please note, students that repeat assessments without attendance will not be required to pay any fees. However, if you choose to be reassessed with attendance you will need to pay the full unit tuition fee for each failed unit. If you have failed every unit, you will need to resit with attendance, unless your request for Assessment Mitigation has been approved.  


If you feel that there have been circumstances that have significantly affected your performance in your assessments (for example, a medical emergency or bereavement) please review the guidance, including the procedure for submitting a request for an extension or other assessment mitigation. Assessments | Manchester Metropolitan University ( This guidance also includes examples of the permitted grounds for assessment mitigation.


There will need to be a compelling reason why you could not submit the claim on time and you would need to provide evidence of this. Evidence should be time relevant and from an impartial third party.
