Guidance for Remote/Online Exams

The LYIT Student toolkit contains information, guidance and the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the process of completing and submitting tests and assessments through Blackboard and TurnItIn. We encourage you to familiarise yourself with these processes before you sit a marked exam or test. Prior to your online exam or test commencing, ensure you know exactly

  • Where to locate your exam/test submission portal within your Blackboard module
  • What time your exam/test will become available within your Blackboard module
  • What time you must submit your exam/test through Blackboard
  • What is expected of you i.e. type or handwrite and scan 

Students can find information, guidance and the opportunity to practice submitting an assessment through Blackboard here.

If Students are required (or permitted) to hand write exam answers, the student must be able to scan their handwritten answers into one digital PDF file for upload/submission through Blackboard. Information and guidance on how to do this can be found here 

Support, guidance, tips and advice for exam preparation and much more can also be found in the LYIT Student Toolkit.
