Update On Unisa Exams

Unisa has seen a lot of hiccups since their examination period started end of June. They have now made many changes and have also provided more instructions for students to have a swifter exam experience online. 

Many system problems have been seen when Unisa started their examination period in June. They have now fixed system errors and have issued further instructions for students.

Unisa has said that students do not need to log into myUnisa to get their exam unless the exam is on myModules, the online interactive MCQ exam. Students should then go to myUnisa and click on the "Login and download my Exam Question Paper for May/June 2020", which is under important information. Here, students will be able to download their exam question papers as well as being able to upload their answers here.

The University has also encouraged students who might struggle to upload their exams using the usual system to use the links to the portals that are provided with their exams. Once you have uploaded using these links, your exams will be sent to Unisa's cloud.

"We apologise to our students still frustrated by the online exams process. We are doing are best given the circumstances we are operating under. Despite the lockdown, we are continuously communicating and setting up systems to deal with exam queries", said Unisa, and that any changes made are not done so lightly and without consideration of students. 

Students will be informed via SMS, social media and their myLife e-mail account should there be any changes made.  

Around 2,2 million exams will be written during this online exam season.

If students should have queries regarding the system crashing during your exam or the postponement of an exam, they should contact Unisa at 0800 00 1870 or email Enquire@unisa.ac.za
