Exams Space on Campus

We understand that a move to alternative assessments, and different arrangements to face-to-face examinations, is a change to what you were expecting and it may be challenging for some students. The University is committed to supporting you during this time and has created an Assessments Student Guide to answer some of your questions.

Exams Space on Campus

To ensure that all our students are able to take their exams effectively, we will be providing spaces on campus for students who are unable to complete their exams at home (e.g. if you don’t have a stable Wi-Fi connection or quiet room to take your exam).

These spaces will have access to City Wi-Fi, City PCs and be supervised to maintain a quiet study environment for you to take your Moodle-delivered examinations.

Please ensure you have booked a space and ensure you follow the guidance in place to keep yourselves and others safe.

BOOK HERE

Before you book a space, please note:

On site exams will take place in the same way as at home exams; you will take your examination through Moodle, or handwrite your script and scan it for upload on Moodle with a mobile phone camera. Charging, scanning and printing access is not bookable nor guaranteed, so please make sure your devices are charged.

  • You will need to book a space for each of the exams you need to take on campus and may need to book multiple slots to ensure you have the required time for your exam.
  • You should arrive in time to set up for your exam, and plan to finish your exam with plenty of time before the space closes at 5pm.
  • Ensure you bring in all the materials required for your examination including paper, pens, and a charged device and follow all Moodle instructions as you would at home.
  • The spaces are designed to offer a quiet space with access to Wi-Fi and a PC and we cannot provide the adjustments you would get in an invigilated exam, such as your own room, a laptop or a scribe.  If you need to discuss your adjustments for the exam period, please contact the Student Counselling, Mental Health and Accessibility services.
  • To access campus, you will need to have your City ID card – please ensure you collect this in advance.
  • You are strongly encouraged to make use of free rapid lateral flow tests through our University of London testing site or at home testing kits before you come onto campus. If your test is positive, you should follow guidance to self-isolate and not travel to campus.
  • You must comply with Covid-19 safety measures while on site, including wearing a face covering unless you are exempt and are social distancing.

If you have any questions about the space on campus or your booking please contact exams@city.ac.uk.
