Exam Rooming Process
The College exam rooming process involves CTSO requesting (in-person) exam requirements ahead of an exam period, collating all College exam activity and allocating large exam space (Great Hall/QTR) as per the Exam Timetabling policy.
Following large space allocation, CTSO ensure all remaining exams are then roomed in suitable exam space across campus.
A timeline for the rooming process (ahead of each College exam period) is mapped out in the Teaching and Exam Timetabling Build Plan 22/23 (PDF).
Please contact email@example.com (Peter Laskey, Head of Exam Timetabling) if you have any queries regarding the above process.
Exam Timetabling policy
The Examination Timetabling policy articulates and clarifies College policy about the planning, preparation, production, publication and ongoing management of changes to the Examinations Timetable at College.
Exam Timetabling User Group (ETUG)
ETUG is a group of key stakeholders involved in exam timetabling across College. Members reflect each of the academic departments as well as central services representatives.
The group has successfully co-ordinated both large central College space and local department space, ensuring all students sit on-campus exams in suitable exams space during main College exam periods, in line with the Exam Timetabling policy.
More recently, the group has shared best practice in running Timed Remote Assessments (TRAs), highlighting improvements to the online exam experience for both students and staff.
Further information (including ETUG minutes and presentations) can be found via the ETUG webpage.

Full College guidance on preparing, conducting and marking examinations/assessments can be found under Academic Policy, managed by the Quality Assurance team.
