Ideally you’ll have your University card (with photograph) as an identification check at all of your exams, placing the card face up on your exam desk. The invigilators will check that the data on the front of your exam script and your card corresponds. However, if you attend an exam without your University card, we will accept alternative photo ID - for example, passport or driving licence. If you are unable to provide photographic ID then we'll endorse your script with a coloured sticker. This sticker will alert faculty staff to the fact that the invigilator was unable to verify your identity at the exam venue.
It's your responsibility to ensure that your handwriting is legible. If you're concerned about your handwriting, please make an appointment with Disability Services as soon as possible. They may recommend the use of a word processor for your exams or arrange for an invigilator to scribe on your behalf.
If the person marking your exam script finds all or any part of it illegible, reasonable attempts will be made to identify another member of staff who is able to decipher your handwriting. If the second member of staff also finds the script illegible, it will forwarded to the Faculty Registrar (or HE Co-ordinator in partner institutions) for a third and final attempt to decipher what you have written. If your script is then still deemed illegible, the University accepts no responsibility and the indecipherable sections will not be marked.
