Familiarise yourself with the instructions, processes and expectations governing end-of-semester exams.
Most examinations take place directly after StuVac (study vacation week). However some lecturers run exams during semester, or they issue a take-home or online exam.
Make sure you understand what will be expected of you during your exam.
Keep a close eye on your University student email account and your online learning space (Canvas or Blackboard) for important announcements leading up to the end of semester.
Talk to your lecturers or tutors, read your course notes, and consider organising a group study session with classmates.
Some exams will allow you to bring in a dictionary or calculator. In these cases make sure you have your dictionary or calculator approved at the Student Centre well in advance of your exam.
You need to be available throughout the end-of-semester formal examination period.
Read your unit of study guide thoroughly at the start of semester to make sure you’re aware of when you need to be ready for exams. If you are granted a replacement exam, in some situations this may occur outside the replacement exam period.
