Dealing with technical challenges uploading your examination papers

Please note, should you be experiencing technical challenges uploading your examination papers, you will be provided an extra upload link to use to upload your examination paper. You will be able to access this link via your module sites.

However, please note you may only use this link after you have had three unsuccessful attempts to upload your examination paper on the official Unisa examination platform/s.  Students are reminded that you must complete writing your examination within the official examination session. The 60 minutes extra provided after the official examination session must be used for uploading of the examination paper. This provides you with sufficient time to resolve any uploading challenges you may experience. Note that the university has records of all examination activities including log in, download and upload times as well as the number of times you attempt to upload your exam paper. No email or late submissions will be accepted.
