This guide details the process of completing a combination with Blackboard assignment final, deferred or supplementary exam.

The exam consists of two parts:

  • Part A: All exam questions will be included within a Blackboard Test.
  • Part B: A Blackboard Test will be used to release the exam question paper and the exam answers file will be submitted to a Blackboard Assignment.

Note: You are able to complete Part A and Part B of your exam in any order, unless your Course Coordinator has specified otherwise.

If you have a set-time exam, you will start at the time listed on your personal examination timetable and submit the exam by the due date. There will be an additional 30 minutes at the end of the specified exam duration for the submission and upload of your completed exam. This time is not intended as extra working time. If you experience technical difficulties you may use this time at your own discretion, but you must leave sufficient time to complete and upload your completed examination.

If you have a 12/48 hour exam, exam completion may occur at any time within the window of time. The 30 minute additional time allowance does not apply to 12 hour and 48 hour online exams. You must ensure you have sufficient time to complete and upload your examination within the 12 or 48 hour period.

For information on preparing for your online exam, refer to the Preparing for online exam success guide.
