Remote exams will be hosted online, so it’s important you are well set up.
Read your exam timetable carefully
Your timetable will list all the important details about your exams, including times, format any required items (like calculators and textbooks). Note down any exams in your calendar so you don’t miss them.
Test your technology with our online tool
We've developed a Technical Practice Exam that allows you to test your internet and equipment prior to your exam. We recommend you take this practice exam so you can make sure everything works as it should ahead of time.
Prepare for any Zoom supervised exams
If you have a supervised exam, make sure you have read the Zoom supervision information, have logged in to the UOW Zoom Portal to check your account is activated, have the required technology, and have prepared your workspace.
Have a stable internet connection
Ensure your internet connection is not interrupted or slowed. Ask other people in your house not to watch Netflix or download large files while you are sitting your exam.
If you think you may not be able to complete your exams at home due to internet connectivity issues, a lack of required IT equipment or other extenuating circumstances, please complete the request for special exam arrangements form.
Ensure your devices are charged
If you’re using a laptop, make sure it’s charged and you’re near a power source should you need it.
Set up a quiet workspace and remove distractions
If you have housemates, let them know when your exams are on. Ensure browser pop-ups and social media notifications are turned off.
Allow plenty of time to set up
Ensure you’ve allowed plenty of time beforehand to set up your device, check your internet connection and log into the system.
