Semester 1 exams: Updated timetables including seat numbers

The exam timetable has now been updated to include venue details and seat number(s). This is available to view on LEARN.

Please consult the information carefully and ensure that you are in attendance for your exams. If you have any queries, contact your school administrators.

If you have been assessed as needing rest breaks during your exams, this is not reflected in your finish time. An invigilator will adjust your time accordingly on the day.

If you are sitting your exams in the Wavy Top Building, please report to the reception area. This is situated as you go through the main entrance on your left-hand side and will be clearly signposted. You will then be escorted to your exam room.

It is important that you make yourself aware of the University’s Regulations governing the Conduct of Examinations; these will be strictly enforced, and all students are reminded that failure to comply with the Regulations will result in a charge of Academic Misconduct. These apply to exams in Semester 1, Semester 2 and the Special Assessment Period. Students are particularly reminded of the following:

  1. Candidates sitting an examination that requires the use of a calculator must bring this item themselves. Failure to bring a calculator may result in the candidate sitting the examination without one – it is not the University’s responsibility to provide this item. Please note that only calculators from the List of Approved Calculators for use in University Examinations may be taken into the Exam Hall. Any student found to have a calculator not on this list will be charged with Academic Misconduct. 
  1. Candidates may only take printed materials or manuscripts into an Examination Hall when it has previously been advertised in the Examination Timetable and when it is stated in the rubric to the question paper that such material may be used. Any student found to have such materials (this includes any revision notes) in the Exam Hall will have said materials permanently confiscated and be charged with Academic Misconduct.
  1. All candidates must sign the Examination Register when it is presented to them by the Invigilators at the commencement of each examination. Failure to sign this register will result in students being marked as absent from the exam and the candidate being given a mark of 0%.
  1. Candidate must have their Student ID card with them and placed on their desk during the exam. This will be checked by an Invigilator when you are asked to sign the Examination Register.
  1. Candidates may refer to English/native tongue dictionaries only when they have received written authorisation from their Departments. Such written authorisation and dictionaries must be presented to an Invigilator for inspection prior to the candidate commencing the examination. Be advised that any marginal notes found in such a dictionary will be considered to be prohibited material regardless of its content. It is the responsibility of candidates to ensure that their dictionary is free from such notes.
