May Exam Schedule and Student Exam Guidance reminder

As you know the May exam period will run from Wednesday 4 May to Friday 27 May (excluding Saturdays and Sundays) and all exams in this schedule will be taken online.  

As previously advised, please sure you read this student guidance document as it contains vital information to support you with your examinations.  The exam schedule is available here MyDMU.

All online exams will be accessed through Blackboard virtual learning environment.


IT Support During Exams

During the 24-hour time period of the online exam, ITMS will be operating their normal support hours, with full staffing between 8am and 5pm Monday-Friday excluding bank holidays.

An out-of-hours telephone-based support service is available at all other times, including bank holidays. This is provided by a third-party service provider and whilst it will not duplicate the same level of support from ITMS they offer a reduced level of help such as password resetting. Contact or T: +44 (0)116 250 6050.

If you have an academic query (i.e. you believe there is an error on the exam paper/questions) you should contact the appropriate Module Leader immediately.

Whilst awaiting a response from the Module Leader you should still continue to attempt the questions to the best of your ability and add a note to your answer explaining the issue with the question, plus reference to the time at which you contacted the Module Leader.

The Module Leader will not be able to advise you as to the technical content of questions, or provide you with advice as to how to proceed with your answer. Any errors found in the exam paper will be considered in the marking process.

It is very important during the exam period that you look after yourself and your mental health. The Healthy DMU Hub has some excellent resources including apps, guided meditation and useful webpages for you to access, alongside masterclasses and mindfulness sessions available to help equip and support you during your exams.

Alongside this the DMU Active programme is made up of a wide variety of sessions from badminton and table tennis to Zumba and swimming. There really is something for everyone and it can be a great way to get out of your accommodation, take some down time and even meet new friends.

We wish you the very best in your upcoming assessments.
