Verification of Identity
The University takes a serious view of cheating. All candidates are to take note of the written examination instructions issued as well as the announcements made during examinations.
A candidate who is suspected of cheating in examinations is liable to disciplinary action including (but not limited to) suspension or expulsion from the University. All materials and/or devices which are found in violation of any examination rules and regulations will be confiscated.
If you fall ill during an examination, you should inform the Chief Invigilator at the examination hall. If you are too ill to continue with your examination, you may leave the examination hall to seek medical attention. Your unfinished answer script will still be marked and graded. Special consideration may be given at the sole discretion of the School concerned if you submit a doctor's memo as your supporting document.
If you have registered for a course but fail to take the examination, you shall be deemed to have failed the course unless the Board of Examiners concerned is satisfied that there is good and sufficient reason for your absence from the examination.
E. Compassionate Leave
In the event of death in your immediate family (defined to include parents, siblings and grandparents), you may decide whether to proceed with your scheduled examination(s). If you decide not to take the examination(s), please inform your School immediately. Leave of absence on compassionate grounds will be granted for absence from any examination(s) within 7 days of the death (starting from the day of death, and inclusive of Saturday, Sunday and Public Holiday). The form for Application for Compassionate Leave for Examination duly filled up, together with a copy of the death certificate, must be submitted to One Stop @ SAC latest by the 2nd working day after the examination period.
F. Outstanding Fees
You should make payment of all outstanding school fees as you will be barred from viewing examination results and registering for courses for the following semester until you have paid the outstanding fees. You may approach your School for assistance should you face any difficulty. Otherwise, you may settle your outstanding fees at One Stop @ SAC.
G. Supplementary Notes
You are advised to plan your schedule and allow for extra travelling time to be punctual for the examinations. No extra time will be given for candidates who are late due to traffic jams, bad weather, etc.
In the event of a major train service disruption authenticated by the SMRT or SBS Transit and if caught in such a situation on your journey for the examination, you are advised to approach the SMRT or SBS Transit staff at the station's information counter for assistance. If necessary, the University may delay the start of examinations by up to 30 minutes. In such instances, all affected candidates will be notified via SMS and NTU email account.
