Your exam timetable will outline the materials permitted for your exam and any reference material required for the exam.
Listed reference materials may include:
- Open book – reference materials permitted
- Restricted – only materials specified are permitted (e.g. textbook, formula sheet, UOW Approved Calculator
- Closed book – no reference materials are permitted
Online Exam (via Moodle)
Subjects with this assessment type will all be open book. Students will be permitted to access any reference materials during their exam, keeping in mind that academic integrity still applies, and students are expected to only submit work that they have written themselves. Open book does not mean you can discuss the exam with anyone during the exam. When answering questions, make sure you don’t copy exactly what is written in your textbook, lecture notes or any other resources. You need to show that you have studied the content and can express it in your own words.
Online invigilated exam (via Moodle)
Please refer to the online exam invigilation page.
Paper exam (on the campus you are enrolled at)
Any authorised materials permitted in a paper exam will only be permitted in paper form, materials will not be permitted via electronic devices. If calculators are permitted, only UOW approved calculators will be accepted, and you need to ensure that they are labelled. Please refer to the calculator page for further information.
Faculty or school exams (arrangements made by Subject Coordinators)
Each exam will vary in this instance. You can see which materials are permitted via your exam timetable.
