Exam delivery modes

Your exams will be delivered in one of three ways:

Online exams

Information will be provided via your student LMS and Subject Coordinator.

Face to face delivery

Assessments are run on campus at their scheduled day and time at the location displayed.  Please ensure you arrive at the venue early to check your seat allocation.

Online hybrid delivery

Assessments are run online via LMS – check the exam timetable to see where you will sit your exam. If a physical room is listed in the location details, you will sit the exam in a computer room on campus. Where the timetable states 'online' for location, we will send you an email with further information. More information regarding online hybrid exams can be found on the guidelines to sitting your exam page.

If you can’t complete an online assessment from home

We recommend booking a teaching room on campus.

Assessment clashes

If your Subject Coordinator has scheduled an ‘in house’ assessment, which does not appear on the timetable but is at the same time as a scheduled assessment, you will need to contact your Subject Coordinator to request an alternate time for the ‘in house’ assessment.

If you cannot attend your scheduled assessment you can check if you are eligible to apply for an Alternative exam arrangement.
