There are two kinds of examinations that you will encounter during your time at Hertford.

First, there are College-only examinations called Collections that you sit at the beginning of each term. These examinations relate to work you have done in the preceding term. They do not form part of your final degree classification. They are, however, important opportunities to gain valuable practice in examinations. They also provide material upon which your tutors can gauge academic progress.

Secondly, there are Public Examinations set by the university that students sit at the end each year. The details of which are available at http://www.eng.ox.ac.uk/admissions/undergraduate/engineering-at-oxford/e...
