The extension of the national lockdown declared by President Cyril Ramaphosa has meant that Unisa has had to make some far-reaching decisions regarding the May/June 2021 examination period.
The May/June 2021 examination period will continue, but no venue-based examinations will be written during this time. The university will, instead, make use of alternative assessment formats for this examination period.
Your lecturers will confirm on myUnisa the type of examination you will write for each module. This information will be available on myUnisa early in May 2021. While the May/June 2021 examinations will take a different format, we remind you that Unisa has a zero-tolerance for any form of plagiarism or examination dishonesty.
While we wish to encourage all students to make use of the non-venue based May/June exam opportunity, students who are unable to complete this assessment will automatically be deferred to the October/November 2021 examination period without penalty or additional cost.
We urge you to continue working on your assignments and preparing for your exams during this challenging time.
