Exam delivery modes

Your exams will be delivered in one of three ways:

Face-to-face exams are held at a time, date and location as specified on the Final Assessment timetable. These may be a written paper exam or an online exam in a computer lab on campus.

It includes specific instructions from your Subject Coordinator and an indication of how long the assessment task should take you to complete. It is important that you read the details for each of your subjects on the LMS site.

Supervised online exams are delivered online using an LMS-based system in conjunction with the Proview proctoring tool and are supervised remotely.

You can sit your supervised online exam at home in a quiet, private room.

You are not required to come to campus for supervised online exams.

Full details of your online supervised exam will be available on the subject LMS site, including specific instructions from your Subject Coordinator and an indication of how long the assessment should take to complete. It is important that you read and understand these details.

If you can’t complete an online assessment from home

There are spaces available on campus to complete your online assessment. View the list of locations at your 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 Assessment Schedule.
