The following pages provide all the information you'll need for exams to organise yourself to arrive on time, and at the correct exam venue, as well as all important exam rules.

2021 exams will be delivered online, in a similar way to 2020 exams.

As most of you have already experienced online exams in 2020, you will be more aware of any environmental or technical issues which may impact your studies. For example, you may not have a quiet space at home where you can study undisturbed, or your wifi signal at home may be unreliable.

The Library is undergoing a cautious and phased reopening in line with NSW Public Health Orders and has opened up a small number of socially distant study spaces which you are currently able to book. You can book a desk or PC within the Main Library to study in a quiet environment, all desks come with power and reliable WiFi access. For more information about access during the exam period, please check back for updates.

Please check your UNSW Student Email for more information about the upcoming Term 3 2021 Exam Period and additional resources.
