The Examinations Section of the Academic Office is responsible for organising annually well in excess of a thousand different examinations which are sat by over fifteen thousand students across the University.
Please note that some examinations (e.g. Language Centre exams and some postgraduate exams) are organised by the relevant teaching department - please contact the department concerned for information about these.
If you need to contact the office in person, please visit Student Reception in Senate House on the central campus, which is open at the following times:
Monday to Thursday:
9am - 5pm
9am - 4pm
UCU Strike Action
The University is aware that a trade union (UCU) may ask its members at Warwick to engage in strike action relating to the examinations process. Whilst the University has yet to receive formal information on the scope of any proposed action, it wishes to reassure students that examinations will continue to run as scheduled.
In the event of any industrial action, students should be assured that academic Heads of Department and administrative colleagues will have arrangements in place, drawing on their past experience of similar industrial action, to avoid or minimise the impact on students.
If you have a specific question on the proposed industrial action and the potential impact on your exams then contact us via the following email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Please use the link "Main Summer Exams Timetable" on the left-hand side of this page for the final timetable for examinations to be held during the principal Summer Term examinations period (that is, weeks 4 - 9 Summer Term, 16 May - 23 June 2016).
FIND YOUR EXAM SEAT NUMBERS ONLINE BEFORE YOUR EXAMS
An online facility is now available for you to find your exam seat numbers online, before your exams take place (for exams in the main Summer Term exam period, 16 May – 23 June 2016). We strongly recommend you do this to save yourself time and help the exams run as smoothly as possible.
The facility is available via a link that you will find on the right-hand side of your personal evision Student Records “Student home page”, entitled “Exam Seat Numbers”. Whilst this gives you advance notice of your provisional seat allocation, we recommend you still double-check your seat number/name on the seating lists that will continue to be displayed outside the exam room as usual, before entering the exam room.
Please note that any very late registrations for exams will have been added manually to these displayed seating lists (and will therefore not be available online in this case).
STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL EXAM ARRANGEMENTS:
Please also note that seat numbers online are not available for students sitting in the centrally managed special exam arrangement rooms LIB2 and H1.48; for these two small venues, separate seating plans will be displayed outside the rooms as usual.
If you have approved special examination arrangements and are due to sit your examinations in your home department you need to contact the examinations secretary in your home department to confirm the precise location for your examinations. The time and date will be as in your examination timetable.
Bags and other possessions in examinations
Please see the guidance on bags, mobile phones and other personal possessions in examinations - please click the link "Guidance for Students - Bags/phones in Examinations" on the left-hand side of this page.
**Students may take still drinking water into exam venues and are advised to do so in hot weather. Students must not bring into exam rooms anything which might cause disturbance to other candidates **.
**Students are also reminded that ALL answer books, statistical tables, law statutes etc provided to candidates in examinations are University property and MUST NOT BE REMOVED from examination rooms. Examination candidates are reminded that the deliberate removal of such materials constitutes theft**.
Examination candidates MUST NOT WRITE in items such as statistical tables, law statutes etc which are provided only for reference purposes within the examination.
Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) and transcripts
If you are an undergraduate student who is due to graduate at the end of this academic year, an electronic document (the Higher Education Achievement Report or HEAR) has replaced the traditional transcript. Further details of this can be found on the Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) webpages on this website (see link on the left-hand side of this page). Please note that your final record of achievement cannot be issued until your degree or other qualification has been conferred and all of your module marks have been validated and loaded into the University student record system by the relevant academic department(s).
If you graduated from the University *before* summer 2012 (that is, before the introduction of the HEAR) and require a transcript you may request one by completing the form available here. Please note that processing transcripts from previous years can take up to 8 weeks owing to the need in some cases to obtain module mark data from individual academic departments.
Taught postgraduate students will currently continue to receive a University transcript by post (although the HEAR will be extended to taught postgraduate students in due course).
**Please note: Taught Postgraduate students graduating in January 2016 will be entitled to one free copy of their academic transcript.**
**In case the University should need to contact you by post after your graduation, please do make sure that your home address on your central student record is up to date and correct**.
