If you are unable to take examination/s on a particular day/s during the published examination periods for reasons of religious observance, you should contact the exams office and advise us by completing the Religious Observance form (available here) and submitting it via Unihelp. If this notification comes BEFORE the publication of the final exam timetable we will endeavour to move the exam to a permissible day where exam activity is permitted. If forms are submitted AFTER publication of the final exam timetable, the University may only be able to offer a deferral to the next exam period. Please note that all such requests will need to be supported by a formal letter from your religious leader. Arrangements will only be made for religious days of obligations where it is prohibited to partake in examination activity. If you are unable to sit an exam for any other reason, extenuating circumstances should be applied for.
The use of headphones or any electronic devices in exams is prohibited. Please note that, before sitting an exam, you may be asked to remove any headwear which conceals your ears to enable checking. This is done to ensure that no concealed headphones or other electronic devices will be used during an exam. Female students wearing any form of religious or cultural headwear which conceals your ears may ask that a female invigilator carry out the check in a separate room. You will be asked to momentarily remove your headwear to reveal your ears and face for the purposes of checking for headphones and for identity checking. Where a male student is asked to show that he has no concealed electronic equipment may request that this check is carried out by a male invigilator.
Students found in possession of a smart watch will be required to place this in their bags. The use of any smart watch is prohibited in any exam. All watches will have to be placed in the bag. There is a clock displayed in all exam venues.
