  • Leave valuables at home - You will be expected to leave your bag away from your desk in the designated area during exams, and therefore you should not bring valuables to the examination room.

What to do now

  • Prepare and Revise - The most important thing to do at this stage is to prepare and plan for your exams. Find out what is going to be assessed in your exam, look at past papers and work out a revision schedule.


  • Regulations - You must also familiarise yourself with the University's Policy on Examinations & Examinations - Guidance for Students. These contain a lot of useful information about what is acceptable or not acceptable in the exam room.
