Outside these hours, or if you are not able to make a phone call, please email from your University account including your student ID number and module code: email@example.com. This mailbox will be monitored during the hours above.
Please note that the hotline will not be able to help with a query about the questions on the exam paper.
In the unlikely event of a major problem with Learn or an individual exam paper, will contact affected students urgently by email.
How the Remote Exams Work
- You should download the exam paper from your Learn Timeline or the relevant module page, from the exam start time on your timetable.
- You should upload your work as one single PDF file - instructions how to do this are available here.
- The PDF must be labelled as follows: Student ID/registration number, followed by the module code and then ‘Exam’ e.g."B123456-19GYB400-Exam" (unless you are advised otherwise for a specific exam).
- Include your ID number (but not your name) at the top of each page and number the pages of the material you plan to submit.
- You are strongly advised to try out the submission process, especially if you plan to handwrite some of your answers. You will have received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org between between 15 and 19 May inviting you to practice on your School’s test site.
- Full details of the remote exam arrangements are available here.
You are reminded that:
- Your answers must be entirely your own work. You must not use answers/content provided wholly or in part by others/other sources.
- You must not share any information or discuss how to interpret or do the questions with anyone else whilst you or they are still taking the exam.
The University has a number of measures in place to ensure students cannot cheat in assessments, including in remote exams, and any attempts to do so and/or gain an unfair advantage will be taken very seriously. Please see the FAQ here called ‘How will you stop cheating?’
