Gazette 21 July 2016
Long vacation resits are appropriate for courses that are examined at the end of Trinity Term. Should a student fail one, they would have the opportunity to retake the examination in the long vacation and re-join their course at the start of Michaelmas term without interrupting their studies as long as they pass.
This doesn't apply to Honour School of Psychology, Philosophy and Linguistics Part I because the FHS Part I Psychology exam takes place at the end of the Easter vacation, and the FHS Part 2 starts at the beginning of Trinity Term. Students are required to have passed the Part I in order to proceed to Part 2, and so if a student ever failed the Part I they would be required to delay the start of their Part 2 studies until the following Trinity Term and could take their resit at the end of the following Easter vacation alongside everyone else.
Thus, the long vacation examination is vestigial and should be removed from the regulations.
