- Some courses with the same title may be offered by different schools. Make sure you attend the exam for the course code in which you are enrolled.
- Special consideration is not granted for misreading the exam timetable.
- The Assessment and assessment flexibility policy and processes outline the rules and regulations around exams.
- Know the rules of conduct.
- Know what you can and can't bring into the exam venue.
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.
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.
