Preparations for the final exams have been successfully concluded at the exam centre on the UCT rugby fields in readiness for the first exams that start on Wednesday, 15 November 2017.
UCT Registrar Mr Royston Pillay said the decision to hold exams in one venue was not taken lightly by the executive and was the outcome of an assessment of what would offer the best chance of conducting and concluding examinations given the threats of disruption by protesters.
Examination venues will open an hour before the examination is scheduled to start. Given the access procedures needed, students are asked to please arrive at the venue 60 minutes before the exam’s official start time and to bring their student cards.
“Access will be restricted to students taking examinations and to invigilators.”
“Access will be restricted to students taking examinations and to invigilators. Staff members should please note that accreditation is required to access the venue and this can be done by application to their Dean or Executive Director,” said Pillay.
Medical personnel will be on duty for the full duration of the examination and toilet facilities will be available in the exam centre. Campus Protection Services (CPS) officers will perform routine security checks, access control and monitoring in the exam centre and surrounding area. CPS officers will be assisted by private security and members of the South African Police Services.
