To: Students with Centralized Course Examinations in 2nd Term 2018-19
Re: Centralized Course Examinations in 2nd Term 2018-19
The 2nd term Centralized Course Examinations will begin on 25 April 2019. Please be reminded of the following and observe all necessary arrangements.
To ensure the correctness of information, students MUST check again their FINAL examination timetable and seat numbers under ‘View My Exam Timetable’ under RES homepage, and note down their seat number for each course examination. Students may also login the CUHK Mobile App Store (https://campusapps.itsc.cuhk.edu.hk/store) and download the App on their mobile phones for checking related information.
All students should bring valid Student ID card for all course examinations. Please RENEW the card if it expires, as card reader devices will be used to take attendance for all centralized course examinations. Students can check their attendance record one day after the examination under “My Event” on the Registration and Attendance System (RAS) (http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/ras). Report to RES if there are any discrepancies.
|3.||Before entering the examination centre, students MUST switch off their mobile phones and any other electronic devices with communication or photo-taking functions (including smart watches). Invigilators will check and report any irregularities if students attempt to use such devices after admittance inside the examination centre.
Students MUST comply with the updated “Rules to be Observed by Candidates at Examination Centre”. For violation of the examination rules, please observe “CUHK disciplinary guidelines and procedures” posted on the website of Honesty in Academic Work: A Guide for Students and Teachers (https://www.cuhk.edu.hk/policy/academichonesty/Eng_htm_files_(2013-14)/p06.htm). Among these rules, please pay particular attention to:
i. Students must bring their Student ID card to the examination for verification of identity and attendance taking.
ii. Those who arrive more than 30 minutes late shall NOT be permitted to take the examination.
iii. “Pens-down” instruction must be strictly followed.
Student should observe the following Regulation in submitting application for absence from examination.
“A student who for medical or other compelling reasons is unable to sit for any course examination shall apply in writing with documentary evidence at the earliest possible instance but in any case not later than 5 working days after the examination concerned to the Registrar for permission for absence. In the case of illness/injury, the application shall be accompanied by a certificate signed or countersigned by the Director of the University Health Service.”
Please note that, for absence from examination due to medical reasons (both physical and/or psychological), the medical certificate(s) (NOT attendance certificate) should be issued on the same date(s) of the examination(s) concerned. For absence from examination due to other compelling circumstances, please state the special circumstances clearly and submit the application in writing with documentary evidence as early as possible. Late arrival after 30 minutes to the examination centre will NOT be considered as compelling reason for absence from examination. Besides, as communicated earlier in our mass mailing dated 8 March, early purchase of air tickets will normally NOT be accepted as reason for application for absence from examination.
Application should be submitted within 5 working days after the examination concerned in writing to the following offices:
Please also observe the Preventive Recommendations at the homepage of the Committee on Health Promotion and Protection (http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/health_promote_protect/) before attending the examinations.
In case of bad weather conditions, please refer to the information “General Arrangements for Classes and Examinations on Approach of Typhoons and Rainstorms” posted on this website.(http://rgsntl.rgs.cuhk.edu.hk/aqs_prd_applx/Public/Handbook/document.aspx?id=1567&tv=T&lang=en)
