This guide details the process of completing a file upload to Turnitin (mid-semester, end-of-semester, deferred or supplementary) Learn.UQ exam, where a Blackboard Test will be used to release the exam question paper and the exam answers file will be submitted to Turnitin.

You will need to start your exam at the time listed on your personal examination timetable. You must start submitting after the exam start time + duration (check your personal exam timetable) + 10 minutes planning time. 

Note: It may take up to 15 minutes for your exam to upload and submit.

Late penalties will be applied after exam start time + duration + 10 minutes planning time + 15 minutes submission time, unless there is sufficient evidence that you encountered problems with the system and/or process that were beyond your control.
