Illegible Exam Scripts

Dealing with Illegible Exam Scripts

(Learning and Teaching Handbook, 6.2.3)

1. Students who have submitted an illegible examination script should have the opportunity to have their scripts retyped from dictation to an approved typist, under supervised conditions.

2. The cost of retyping should be borne by the candidate. 

3. Students should, however, continue to be reminded of their responsibility to produce legible scripts.
