You will see a list of your exams which will be named by module code (In the example pictured below there are two exams, one for DIGI0001 and another for DIGI0002). Please note you may not see your actual exams listed when taking the practice exam, but your exams will appear here before the start of the exam period.
When the exam is ready to commence, the arrow icon will appear green.
Click on the exam to open it.
Carefully read the exam page, and make note of any additional materials or support links.
All times shown on your timetable are in UK time (This will be BST (UTC+1)). The times shown in the AssessmentUCL platform will be your local time, wherever you are based.
Where an exam has a timed duration (e.g. 2 or 3 hours in a 24-hour window), this will be shown on your exam timetable.
You can start the timed exam at any time during the 24-hour window. The 24 hour window is shown on the exam page by the date range at the top of the page, underneath the exam name.
The timed duration will also be shown (in the picture below, the duration is 2 hours). Please note the duration shown does not include the 1 hour upload window.
You can start a timer for the duration by clicking the Begin flow button.
Once the timer is started, there is a countdown, after which your exam paper and the submission area will become visible.
For timed exams, when the duration of your exam has passed (i.e. the timer has run down to 0), you will still have an additional 1 hour to ensure your exam is uploaded and submitted correctly. If you submit during this 1 hour period, Assessment UCL may state your submission is a 'late hand in', however you can ignore this message. Submissions made during this 1 hour upload window will NOT be considered by UCL or your department as late.
If your exam is a 24-hour open book exam, you will automatically see the exam page. Please note there is no additional 1 hour upload time for 24-hour open book exams.
An overview of what you can see on the exam page is shown in the image below:
