The University has a useful webpage about what to expect and what you need to do on the day of your exam, which includes links to the Proctorial notices about conduct during exams. 

Arrive early

You should arrive at the exam room at least 15 minutes before the advertised start time of each paper.

Late arrival at an examination

No-one will chase you up if you do not arrive for your exam. Colleges are not informed within the first 30 minutes if you don't arrive. If you arrive within the first 30 minutes you may sit the exam in the time remaining. If you are more than 30 minutes late you will not be permitted to sit the exam anywhere.

Reading time

There will be 10 minutes’ reading time at the start of every exam unless otherwise announced.  (NB. the only module that is currently known not to have reading times is 4I8 ‘Medical Physics’.)

Writing legibly

Illegible writing may result in loss of marks.  The Examiners will accept any legible work but would prefer blue or black ink.

Showing working

In the working of all questions, and in the evaluations of numerical quantities, you should show a sufficient number of steps for the Examiners to make a proper assessment of your answers.

Ban on removing paper from the exam rooms

You must not remove ANY paper including the question paper, and most particularly your exam script, from the exam rooms. The accidental removal of scripts can have extremely serious repercussions for the student concerned.

Celebrating after the exams

Please remember that post-exam celebrations within the Department can be very disruptive to others.We understand that you want to celebrate but please do not throw food at anyone or squirt liquid at passers-by.
