Reminder – Remote Exams

The remote exams begin on Tuesday 26 May 2020.

If you have any problems downloading the exam paper or uploading your answers during a remote exam, help will be available as follows:

Telephone Hotline (preferred): 01509 222900

between 8am and 6pm UK (BST) time, Monday to Friday.

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: 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 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.

Academic Integrity

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?’
