Study @ Unisa

Prepare for the exams or final assessment


Exam timetables

Once the exam dates have been finalised, Unisa will make available an official exam timetable with your final exam dates and the modules for which you have / have not gained admission to the exams. Click here for more information. 

Some modules do not include an examination, as they make use of continuous assessment throughout the semester. In such cases, the module will not be included on your examination timetable.

Some practical tips for your exams

Exams can be stressful, but there are ways to reduce that - mostly through planning, studying hard and being well prepared. Also take note of the essential tips for online examinations.

Aegrotat and special exams

Aegrotat and special exams may be granted for the following reasons: illness on or before the exam date or extenuating personal circumstances. Full details are available on the examinations website or click here for contact information. 

FI concession

A final-year student who has one or two outstanding modules to complete a qualification may qualify for assistance and potentially an alternative assessment opportunity. Unisa rules and regulations apply, but it is important to note that you cannot apply for an FI concession - Unisa grants the FI concession based on certain requirements met by the student.
