Exam boards / progression boards

Academic misconduct cases should be investigated as soon as possible and in accordance with published timescales. If a case is still in progress when the relevant exam board is held, then the module mark and/or student outcome should be left blank. Final outcomes should be input via Chair’s Action once the case is concluded. There is no requirement for academic misconduct cases to be discussed or recorded in exam board minutes.

If evidence of academic misconduct comes to light after the relevant exam board / progression board, the investigation will be conducted as normal. Any penalties can be applied retrospectively by Chair’s Action to module marks or student status.
