The allowable materials for each unit of study is displayed on the front cover of the exam paper. It is your responsibility to ensure you are aware of the allowable materials for each exam. Make sure to bring your own:
Any materials other than the stated allowable materials cannot be taken into the exam room, except with the special permission of the invigilator in charge and where they are specifically required for an examination and expressly authorised by the examiners.
You must not take into the exam room any:
- writing paper
- electronic device (including electronic dictionaries)
- any form of stored or recorded information
- religious materials such as Prayer Books, Korans and Bibles
- bags and/or personal belongings – for exams at the Melbourne Showgrounds these must be left in the Bag Room located in Building 9. The University does not accept responsibility for any loss or damage of items left in the bag room and recommends you only take the permitted materials with you to the exam venue.
Mobile phones, smart watches & other electronic device
You are not permitted to bring electronic devices – including your mobile phone, smart watch or tablet devices – into the exam venue unless it is switched off and placed underneath your desk. Invigilators will advise you of this procedure before the commencement of each examination.
If any electronic device is found switched on in your possession after the amnesty period in the examination venue, it will be deemed as a breach of examination rules. This may result in the matter being referred to the relevant College for further action in accordance with the Student Misconduct Regulations.
Invigilators will advise you that the electronic device will be held as unauthorised material and returned to you at the end of that examination.
Watches cannot be worn during your exam. They must be removed and placed on or under your desk.
Only students whose first language is other than English can bring dictionaries into exams. If your first language is other than English, you must register your dictionary at a Student Service Centre. Please read the instructions below on how to register your dictionary.
