In addition to incourse tests and assignments, there are official examinations that are held at specific time during the semester.
Final Examinations for Semester 1 are held in December, for Semester 2 in April/May and for the Summer Sessions in August.
Examination Timetables are usually posted in advance of the examinations and colour-coded Examination cards are distributed prior to the examination periods. Only candidates in good financial standings will receive cards that wil allow for the sitting of examinations. Lost or misplaced examinations cards will be replaced at a cost of $300.00.
An Examination Receipt is issued to a candidate upon submission of an exmaination script or other piece of work assessment given by a facilitator that will contribute to a module grade.
In order to pass a course, a student must have been in satisfactory attendance at the course and must have satisfied the examiners in the associated examinations.

No pencil cases, calculator cases, wallets or purses, headgear, large coats or any similar items are allowed in the examination room. Cellular phones are not allowed in the examination room.

Medical reports which simply state, that the student was unfit for work/school on a particular day/s will not be accepted. Kindly bring this to the attention of your medical practitioner.
All candidates must sit and attempt all examinations. The failure of any candidate to sit his/her examination will result in that candidate, sitting the subject in the next round of examinations. Such candidate who performs satisfactorily will receive a Pass grade in the subject.
