The Academic Registry prepares a seating plan for all examination diets, excluding the reassessment diet in August.

PLEASE READ: From December 2011, entry to examinations taking place in the Sport and Exercise Centre will not be permitted until 15 minutes before the start of the examination unless you are entitled to prior sight of the examination paper. As a result, it is essential that you have checked your seat number via the link below prior to the day of the examination as there will be no facility to do this outside any of the venues on the day.

Students who have examinations scheduled to take place in Sports Hall 1 (SH1), Sports Hall 2 (SH2), James Watt Centre I (JWCI) and James Watt Centre II (JWCII), should ensure that they have their seat number before entering the examination hall. If you have an examination in any of these locations but do not have a seat number please contact Academic Registry.

Please note: any examinations taking place in academic rooms will not have a seating plan.
