Student Services have developed several different mechanisms to help support you as you approach your exams and assessments. Continued support for your academic studies during Covid-19.
Short Format Assignments
Some of your assessments may be in the form of Short Format Assignments (SFAs), so make sure you understand what these involve and when your deadlines are.
Time Constrained Assessments
Some of your exams may be in the form of Time Constrained Assessments (TCAs). Make sure you understand what these involve and check with your School for specific details of what you will be required to do and when they will be taking place.
Getting ready for your assessments
Plan carefully how you will manage your assessments from home – find a quiet study space, let family/friends know your assessment timetable, and plan your time to make sure you meet your deadlines.
Prepare for any potential issues with this Assessment Troubleshooting guide.
