Assignment and examination administration


Rechecking of examination answer books
Procedures for the remarking of examination scripts are sent to students together with the examination results. Rechecking of an answer book is an administrative procedure to ensure that all questions were marked and that the final mark was calculated correctly.

A written application (together with the prescribed fee) for rechecking of an answer book must reach the Examination Administration Division before or on the closing date (see re-checking dates below). See amount payable under "Miscellaneous fees" under Study fees on the myUnisa website. An answer book that only consists of an examination mark reading sheet will NOT be rechecked as these are marked electronically.

You may apply at any of the Unisa offices. Applications must NOT be directed to academic staff. Or via e-mail:, the student number must be indicated in the subject heading. No late applications will be considered.

Rechecking results will be made known approximately 3 to 4 weeks after the closing date. The mark awarded after rechecking will be the final result. The fee paid for the rechecking process will be refunded if as a result of the rechecking process you obtain a higher mark. A student will not necessarily be entitled to a further supplementary examination (if applicable) on grounds of a recheck result.

Applications for re-checking must be made before or on the following dates:
