Examination Day and what to expect

All Examination Candidates registered with the Exams, Assessment and Mitigation Committee (EAMC) for Examinations with adjustments will sit their Examinations on a computer in a dedicated invigilated environment. The Exams, Assessment and Mitigation Committee (EAMC) publish the exact dates in advance to all candidates who have registered for Examinations with Adjustments.

The Examinations with Adjustments period typically runs from May to June annually.

On Examination Day make sure that you have brought with you any keyboard crib sheet or special equipment that has been authorised for your use at an Examination Open Day by a Exams, Assessment and Mitigation Committee (EAMC) representative.

Upon arrival at the dedicated classroom where you will be sitting your examination the Invigilator will record your attendance and allocate you your seat for the duration of the examination.

When you sit down on at your allocated desk you will find a paper handout that details general examination information.

On the classroom computer you will be presented with the DS-Exams Login screen.  Do not log into the system until you are told to do so by your Examination Invigilator.

We believe we've discovered the cause and implemented a workaround that has cleared the backlog and will prevent this from happening again.
