  11. Resits with BAM: In the eventuality that you need to resit an assigment or examination BAM can charge a resit fee appropriate to the level of tuition and support that is required to be given. Some circumstances may arise where the full tuition amount will have to be charged. BAM reserves the right to undertake an assessment on the level of tuition and support needed based on the knowledge and feedback from class tutors and after reviewing a students final submission.

Deferred assessments will incur a fee of £80 and resit fees start from £150. The level of fee charged for a resit is dependent on the level of support required and/or time lapsed from the students attendance at class. Where a student has not attended the classes in more than 12 months they must resit the whole class before they undertake a new assessment.
