Examination Start Times: 09:30, 13:00, 16:30 - please read details below about arriving at the exam venue on time.
- You are required to be at the examination hall 20 minutes prior to the start of the examination, i.e. at 09:10 for a 09:30 examination, at 12:40 for a 13:00 examination and at 16:10 for a 16:30 examination.
- The examination hall will open at 09:15, 12:45 and 16:15 and all students must be seated five minutes before the start of the examination, by 09:25, 12:55 and 16:25.
- In the past there has been a serious problem with examinations starting late as students only enter the exam hall at the last minute prior to the start of the examination. In a large hall where 200-300 students may be taking the examination this can cause serious delays in starting the examination.
- Once you enter the exam hall exam conditions apply, please read the Examination Regulation.
- You are not allowed to commence writing on answer books until the Chief Invigilator instructs you to commence the examination. Writing on exam scripts prior to the start of the examination will be treated as a breach of exam regulations and will be reported to the Examinations Security Group.
Where modules are examined by means of a formal examination paper administered by the University’s Examinations Office and time-tabled centrally, the exam is a standard two hours duration.
The only exceptions are those approved by the Academic Regulations Committee as follows:
|Module Code||Module Description||Exam Duration||Examination Period||Date Approved|
|MA310||Actuarial Mathematics I Paper 1 - Written||180 minutes||Semester 2 / Autumn||2012-2013|
