Unisa Reveals When They Will Withhold Your Exam Results



South Africa largest university has provided its students with a comprehensive guide they need to follow if they don't want their exam results to be withheld. Here's why Unisa will withhold results. 



Numerous students at South Africa's largest university, the University of South Africa (Unisa), have experienced the withholding of their exam marks in recent months. Unisa has outlined specific circumstances leading to this outcome in a comprehensive guide for students.

Here's Why Unisa Will Withhold Results

  1. Failure To Use Proctoring Tools: Students may face withheld results if they fail to utilise the prescribed proctoring tools or neglect to prepare their devices through a mock examination. Proctoring tools, essential for maintaining exam integrity, require a connection to a smartphone, laptop, or desktop equipped with a functional camera. All students are mandated to use these tools during their exams.

  2. Not Submitting Invigilation Results: Marks may be withheld if students neglect to upload invigilation or proctoring results within 48 hours and ignore notifications for Invigilator App reminders. Students must upload Invigilator proctoring results promptly and set notification preferences on their Invigilator App to ensure timely reminders.

  3. Exiting Invigilator Application And Using Mobile Phones: Marks may be withheld if students exit or minimise the Invigilator App for a cumulative 10 minutes, engage in non-exam-related phone activities, or fail to activate flight mode during invigilation. Any phone activities, including calls, messaging, internet browsing, or social media engagement during the examination session, will result in flagged status and withheld marks.

  4. Providing Unrecognisable Proctoring Images: Students risk withheld marks by submitting proctoring images that are unrecognisable or failing to provide typed responses for Turnitin-elected modules. Scanned handwritten scripts or scanned typed scripts are not permissible. Images that are unclear, obscured, faint, or lack a full facial representation during examination sessions will lead to withheld marks.

  5. Listening To Music Or Utilising Audio-To-Text Software: Without proper declaration, listening to audio or utilising audio-to-text software during examination sessions may result in withheld marks.

Additionally, Unisa emphasises that students identified for disciplinary action due to academic misconduct during examinations will also have their marks withheld. Understanding and adhering to these guidelines is crucial for students to avoid any complications with the release of their exam results.
