exam help

Exams can be a stressful time, but advice(su) has practical advice to help you through and support if things aren't going to plan. See our handy tips here


When you sit an exam or a course test, you are subject to University regulations covering conduct in exams, and it is important that you know what these are, because breaches of these regulations can have serious consequences for you.

advice(su) has put together this information sheet which:

  • summarises the main rules applying to UEA students; and

  • explains what will happen if a rule is broken by a student, including the possible penalties.

It also explains what you can do if events outside your control which affect your performance happen just before or during a test or exam.


Exam feedback is available to all students other than finalists and those doing a Foundation year. Schools must provide generic feedback, and may provide more. Make sure you take advantage of this opportunity. It could make all the difference to next year's results!

You can request access to your exam script by requesting access at your Hub. You will need to give at least 48 hour's notice and you will only be permitted to review the script with a member of LTS staff present.

You can also ask for a meeting with your module organiser to go through your script.

For more information on getting exam feedback to see The UEA makes it clear that while there may be annotations on the script this is part of the marking process and is not a form of feedback.
