Everything you need to know about your exams — when they will be, how to prepare, and what to do on exam day.
How exams will run in First Half Year 2021
Most assessments in the Summer Term and Semester 1 will remain online. This is because physical distance restrictions are likely to remain in place during this period, and it also enables students who cannot initially return to campus to continue with their studies.
There may be different assessment arrangements for some subject modes – such as those practical and specialist subjects that will be delivered in-person on campus, that also require their assessments to be undertaken in-person on campus. There may also be some further exceptions, with decisions made on a case-by-case basis. In these cases, the Subject Coordinator will communicate the arrangements directly to students enrolled in their subject before the mid-semester break in Semester 1 2021. The University will also continue to offer spaces on campus for students to sit their examinations should they not have access to a safe or suitable space.
