Examinations

Can I bring a dictionary into my exam?

English language dictionaries are usually permitted for exams. (There are always exceptions though, especially for lab exams).  The form is available in the Student Services Office and needs to be signed off by an administrative staff member. You will need to take the form and your dictionary to the Examinations Office (located in Melville Hall) at least one day before your exam.

Where can I view my exam paper?

If you wish to see your marked exam paper, please get in touch with the course convenor.

What will happen if I fail courses?

Make an appointment to see a staff member in CECS Student Services. They are there to help you. Students who have failed a total of four (or more) courses with their academic career (i.e. undergraduate or postgraduate programs) is considered to have failed to maintatin satisfactory academic progress and will be placed on  ‘academic probation’. This is an official warning to the student and will outline the implications of further course failures for the student's studies.

If a student fails a total of 8 (or more) courses, the student may be excluded the student from their program for a specified period of no longer than 5 years. Students who are subject to exlusion will be given an oppiortunity to "Show Cause" before thier exclusion is finalised. This means that the student will be excluded unless they appeal and ‘show cause’ for why they have been failing and what they are doing to make sure that it will not happen again. Being placed on Show Cause is very serious. CECS Student Services can help you prepare your appeal to submit to the University.

This is normal and students are expected to sit both exams on the same day. However, if you have two exams at the same time you need to contact CECS Student Services.
