Examination Period - Update

1 May 2020

24 hour, timed online exams

Examinations for 24 hour online exams will begin soon, and full dates are available via the Revised timetable for Exam Boards and associated activities, 2020 website (staff login required). The dates and times shown in the current examination timetable show the dates and deadlines for exams and coursework that was in the original examination timetable. The timetable does not list exams that have been excluded and does not contain details of the Capstone Assessment.


The examinations team are now in the process of building exam pages on individual module course pages.

Please can you advise all colleagues in your departments not to amend the exam pages on moodle or to change the order of placement of the examination page. The examinations team will contact departments as and when the exam pages are built to enable checking. If any changes are required please contact the examinations team.

Examinations Papers

The main risk to the examination process is the accuracy and clarity of examination papers, therefore careful scrutiny of the exam paper is essential to ease this process and eliminate as many queries as possible.

Students will have access to the Examination Paper Query form which they are able to submit along with their examination submission.

It is essential that all students, including re-sit and deferred students are given access to the 2019/20 version of the Moodle Course Module course. Please ensure that all students are registered on the correct course to enable them access to the examination. 

Moodle Test Environment

A practice exam environment on Moodle has been set up to allow students (and staff) access to a practice exam environment to gain familiarity with the content, guidance notes and environment.

Briefing Session

A virtual Exam Liaison Officer briefing session was held to present the centrally delivery plan for 24 hour online exams and an opportunity for the forum to raise questions. The panel was made up of:

  • Panel: Joanne Moles (Examinations Manager), 
  • Kirsten Hamilton (Head of Student Records), 
  • Lizzie Vinton (Academic Regulations Manager), 
  • Janice Kiugu (Digital Education) 

You can listen to the recording of the briefing session.
