Candidates are expected to conduct themselves in an appropriate and honest manner during examinations. To avoid misunderstanding and reduce any temptation to misuse smart devices, candidates should avoid bringing unnecessary devices (including watches and mobiles) to their examinations. Any brought to the venue must be switched off and placed in a clear container or bag, under their examination desk. Given the growth in the smart watches market, from May 2016, these devices will include ALL digital watches, AND any non-digital watches must be displayed at the top edge of the examination desk or also placed in a clear container under the desk. Please see the Candidate Guide and Examination Announcements for details.
If you need any adjustments because of a disability or dyslexia and do not already have a support profile, please make an appointment to see an Advisor in the Disability and Dyslexia Service (DDS) 6 weeks before an examinations period. Ring 01895 265213 or come to DDS Reception in Room 315, Bannerman Centre to make an appointment. After this date we cannot guarantee that adjustments can be made.
If you are stressed about examinations, use the Counselling Service:
Ring 01895 265070 between 10:00 - 16:30 Monday & 09:30 - 16:30 Tuesday to Friday for an appointment;
Drop in at Counselling 13:45 weekdays - no appointment necessary, but first come, first seen; Counselling is located opposite the Medical Centre, and drop ins are available throughout both term and vacation time except when we are closed (Christmas and Easter vacation time).
If you feel that your examination performance may be or has been impaired due to illness, injury or situation, please contact your department who will be able to advise you and, where appropriate, direct you to documentation to submit mitigating circumstances. Such circumstances usually need to be reported to departments before, during or within 7 days of an examination.
