Examination Conduct and Processes

Examinations are very different from many other types of assessment. They are a compulsory assessment item and, even if students have done well on internal assessment tasks before the examination, if they do not attend the examination they will fail the paper.

Lecturers may write and mark the examination paper but do not manage any part of the examination process. Examinations are organised and staffed by the Assessment and Graduation Office. Lecturers will not be present at the examination except possibly for a short time at the beginning. There will be one or more examination supervisors present during an examination and they are in charge of the examination procedures.

Examination timetables are available six to seven weeks before the start of examinations and will be posted in the Student Centre and be available online. If students mistake the date, time, or location of an examination, they will not be given a chance to re-sit it.
