Unisa extended and updated exam timetable for May/June 2018, can be found on the Online examination timetable tool.
Unisa extended and updated exam timetable for the May/June exams are available for registered students only.
Students who have already submitted assignments will get admission based on their marks. However, students who failed to submit assignments will ALSO be admitted!
Even students who have not submitted their assignments, can STILL submit it.
Very important to know and keep in mind
- Exam papers for the May 2018 exams will be different from the June 2018 exam papers.
- This means that although your are writing the same subjects in both the May & June exams, each subject paper will be different.
- Students writing their subjects in the May 2018 exam will have totally different questions in their exam papers, than the students writing the exact same subjects in the June 2018 exams.
How does the May/June 2018 exam extension works?
Here is a step-by-step explanation of how the Unisa extended and updated exam timetable works:
- Students can now choose if they want to write their exams in May (7-18 May 2018) or rather write it in June (extended exam).
- A student is not allowed to write both the May AND June exams.
- Students do not need anything extra in order to be able to apply for writing the June exam (second option).
- Unisa clearly states that the SAME exams that are going to written between 7 May 2018 – 18 May 2018, will also be written from 18 June 2018 – 29 June 2018 (extension).
- Students can now choose to write their exam subjects that are on in either May 2018 OR the June 2018 exams.
- Keep in mind that if a student wants to try and write all his/her exam papers in May 2018 AND June 2018, Unisa will only mark the first exam papers that a student writes in May 2018, and NOT the June 2018 exam papers that a student wrote as well.
- Make sure you choose either the May 2018 exams OR the June 2018 extended exams which you are going to write.
Who qualifies for the Unisa extended and updated exam?
- This exam extension applies to all the undergraduate students (which include students that are registered for specific subjects/modules, complete online modules/subjects and modules/subjects with online assessments) registered for a formal qualification.
- Please take note that the exam extension does NOT apply to the following students: postgraduate students, students registered for any SBL courses or students registered for a short learning programme.
How will the changed examination dates affect me?
- The following two options are available if you are an undergraduate student registered for a formal qualification, and you are also scheduled to write examinations from 7 May 2018 – 18 May 2018:
- Option 1: You can write some or all of the scheduled subject/module examinations from 7 May 2018 – 18 May 2018 as it appears on the original timetable that was sent to your myLife e-mail account,
- Option 2: You can write some or ALL of the scheduled subject/module examinations from 7 May 2018 – 18 May 2018 from 18 June 2018 – 29 June 2018 as it appear on the new timetable that will be sent to your myLife e-mail account on 5 May 2018.
- These two above listed options are only valid for those subjects/modules written during the first two weeks of the May/June 2018 examination period (e.g. from 7 May 2018 – 18 May 2018).
- This change does not affect the subjects/modules written from 21 May 2018 – 15 June 2018 and therefore these subjects/modules will continue as stated on the original examination timetable.
