UEA Exam/Event Assessments - Medical Certificates

IMPORTANT: All students (irrespective of whether you are registered with us or not) - If you are going to miss an exam/event assessment, you must phone the medical centre so we can then book a telephone/video consultation with you same day.

Event assessments include:  

  • Examinations 
  • Course Tests 
  • OSCEs (for medical students) 
  • OSPEs (for pharmacy students)

You should make every effort to contact the Medical Centre before the start of your exam/event assessment and ask for a call back from the urgent clinician, explaining that you have a course test or exam (today) and feel unwell.  You will be added to the urgent clinician list for a phone call back/video consultation.  This must be done same day otherwise we are unable to provide a medical certificate for this situation.

Completed medical certificates are emailed directly to your HUB. Please note that while we endeavour to process medical certificates as soon as possible they can take up to 10 working days to be sent. To prevent fraudulent application for medical certificates we reserve the right to check on all details given to us. Fraudulent applications will be reported to the University.
