Online exams: Rules

Skills for Learning LogoOnline exams: Rules

For most people, online exams are a new thing, so it is important not to make assumptions about them based on your previous experience. 

It is important to familiarise yourself with the rules well before the exam. 



Make sure you know the rules of the exam. If you have any doubts, ask before the exam. For example:

  • Is it OK if you talk to other students about things that are not exam-related?
  • What happens if you submit a bit late?
  • Can you ask questions during the exam? 
  • And so on. 

Answer your questions about the exam before, not during or after the exam.
