• Allow extra time for journeys and plan routes using the bus and local rail networks (be aware that public transport in and around London may be busier than usual);
• Arrange a lift with staff or students who are driving onto campus (be aware that roads are likely to be slower or busier);
• Look at staying locally the night before an exam, either with friends, on campus or at a local hotel or B&B.
If you cannot attend your exams for any reason, you must notify your department as soon as possible before the exam starts and then submit a claim for extenuating circumstances: http://www.brunel.ac.uk/about/quality-assurance/supporting-students.
Please remember that you will need to produce evidence that you were unable to travel to campus, if that is the reason for missing any exams.
Make sure you arrive on time: latecomers are not able to sit their exam. Please see our Examinations Policy for clarification on any questions you have.
Please check the TFL website nearer the time for service updates. For up-to-date information on the weather, please see the BBC website or other news sources and keep checking here for any updates.
Candidates are expected to conduct themselves in an appropriate and honest manner during examinations. To avoid misunderstanding and reduce any temptation to misuse smart devices, candidates should avoid bringing unnecessary devices (including watches and mobiles) to their examinations. Any brought to the venue must be switched off and placed in a clear container or bag, under their examination desk. Given the growth in the smart watches market, from May 2016, these devices will include ALL digital watches, AND any non-digital watches must be displayed at the top edge of the examination desk or also placed in a clear container under the desk. Please see the Candidate Guide and Examination Announcements for details.
If you need adjustments for a known disability/dyslexia that aren’t already in place, or are feeling stressed about exams please contact the Student Support and Welfare Team, who are located in the Student Centre in the Howell Building. Ring 01895 267045 between 09:00 - 16:30 for an appointment; adjustments made after 31 March 2018 cannot be guaranteed.
If you feel that your examination performance may be or has been impaired due to illness, injury or situation, please contact your department who will be able to advise you and, where appropriate, direct you to documentation to submit extenuating circumstances. Such circumstances usually need to be reported to departments before, during or within 5 days of an examination.
