Academic Support Exam Irregularities

Exam season can be very stressful and students often feel under pressure during this time of the academic year.

Revision and preparing for exams aren’t easy for everyone, and sitting a formal exam (especially if it’s your first one at Uni) can seem very daunting.

It can be especially challenging if you feel underprepared. But, no matter how tempting it might be to have a sneaky look at prohibited materials or devices during an exam, it really isn’t worth it. By doing this and trying to get an unfair advantage through the use of unauthorised materials you risk a serious penalty.

What If You Don’t Adhere to the Formal Examination Rules?

Failure to comply with the University’s formal examination rules could result in sanctions that could affect the outcome of your degree. So please, do not commit an exam irregularity. Learn more about what counts as an irregularity.

Guild Advice have also compiled a handy document all about Exam irregularities and how to avoid them, which you can read online.
