For all programmes, learner's performance on each course is assessed by a written examination and by the submission of online assignments. Students cannot sit for the written examinations for a course unless they have completed all the compulsory assignments.
The grade awarded for the course is based on the mark obtained in the written examination and on the combined mark for the assignments on the course.
Examinations take place at the end of every semester at various University examination centers around the country.
How are examinations conducted?
1. Examinations will be written during the last 2 weeks of every semester, and students will need to visit UNN examination centers close to them to write their examinations. Please visit the locations page to see the liaison offices closest to you. 2. Examinations may be computer based or paper based. The examination modality would always be announced. 3. On the examination day, students are advised to be at the venue of the examination at least thirty (30) minutes to the start of the examination. Any admission into the examination later than 30 minutes would be at the discretion of the invigilator. 4. Students must display their ID cards during examinations. 5. Students are required to bring their own writing materials such as the calculators and other writing materials allowed into the examinations hall. 6. Involvement in examination malpractice attracts invitation to the Examination Malpractice Panel and may subsequently expulsion from the University depending on the gravity of offence.
