Students are permitted to bring written materials, and news reporting and other printed materials on Mainzeal with them in to the exam and use these materials to help them when answering their exam questions. For example, you may bring: Your textbookPrintouts of the relevant legislationA dictionary (either for translation or understanding)Class notesStudy notes students have madeDiagrams or summary sheets developed by students Students are not permitted to communicate with each other in the exam or exchange study materials during the exam. Why is the exam open book? The exam is designed to test your ability to apply the law to real world fact scenarios not to test your memory. An open book exam also more closely resembles common workplace experiences. For example, you may be called to a meeting to talk about a piece of work you are doing and answer questions about it. You are able to prepare for the meeting and bring materials that will help you answer the questions, but you still have to perform on the day to demonstrate that you understand what you are doing.
