You will need a physical student card for all on campus exams (digital card on the Mobile App is not acceptable) so please upload a photo (link to photo guidance Upload your photo | University of Strathclyde) and book an appointment to collect your card (link to booking system University Login (strath.ac.uk)).

If you do not have a physical student card then you must make sure that you are able to present an alternative form of photo ID when sitting an exam e.g. driving licence, BRP, Young Scot National Entitlement Card.


There are three main University exam periods each academic year, as outlined below:

Students MUST be available for exams during all three of the exam periods and should therefore not book any holidays that fall into these periods.

(Please note that these dates primarily relate to exams for Undergraduate students.  There may be alternative dates for PGT students and it is imperative that you contact your department for further details.)

Timetables for the exam diets are normally available approximately four weeks before the diet commences. Once published, student’s exam timetables will be available via the student portal on PEGASUS.

Please note that the dates of individual exams are subject to change. It is the student’s responsibility to know the date, time and venue of their exams and they should regularly check the web-based timetable on PEGASUS for any amendments.
