·  Information on the room and candidate number will be published in Studentweb a few days before the exam.

Practical examinations

A practical examination may take the form of an exhibition, performance or submission of a product. Most practical exams involve preparatory work followed by a presentation, performance or submission. The lecturer will publish more detailed provisions about the organisation and implementation of the exam in Canvas. 

Oral examinations

The course plan states whether the oral examination includes time for preparation or not. It should also indicate how much time you have at your disposal. The schedule for the oral exam is normally published on the Canvas course page one week before the exam date.

You must take the following to the exam

·       Valid ID (student identity card, bank card with photo, driving licence)

·  A laptop if you are going to present something and need to use a laptop

·  Permitted aids

Attendance requirements 

·  You must arrive in good time. Unless otherwise stated, you must arrive 30 minutes before the time set for the exam/preparation time.

·  If you do not arrive on time, and NLA has not approved your absence, this will count as one examination attempt. You then forfeit the right to sit a new/re-scheduled exam and must wait until the next ordinary course exam is held.

·  If you arrive too late for a group examination, you cannot expect to sit the exam/receive a pass grade together with your group.
