Must know info about your exam timetable:

Types of exams

Exams can either be closed book, limited text or open book. Your lecturer should advise you in advance what type of exam you will be sitting.

Closed book – You are unable to refer to any notes or materials during your exam.

Limited text – You are able to refer to a specific text or written material as stipulated by your lecturer. This could be a case study or you may be able to refer to one or two pages of notes.

Open book – You are able to refer to any written material during your exam, including text books and written notes.

School-run exams

Some RMIT schools schedule exams, practicum or laboratory tests specifically for their own students. Because these exams are not administered centrally, they are known as school-run exams.

If you have a school-run exam, your school will contact you with details.
