Authority to make changes to the final timetables Changes to the final timetable affecting undergraduate courses may be made only by the Examinations Officer, after consultation with the Chair of the Timetable Committee, the Head of Department and with the support of all students concerned. A change can only be made if it does not cause any further clashes. The Examinations Office shall report any such change to the Faculty Manager(s) concerned.

MISREADING OF THE TIMETABLE WILL NOT BE CONDONED OR ACCEPTED. Students must familiarise themselves with the rules regarding exams, supplementary exams, and deferred exams. These are found in Handbook 3, General Rules and Policies. The onus is on students to understand these rules and to follow correct procedures. YOU ARE REMINDED THAT YOU MAY NOT HAVE A CELLPHONE ON YOUR PERSON DURING THE EXAM.

Extract from 2014 Handbook 3: “GENERAL RULES AND POLICIES”
