The current regulations on the use of dictionaries are indicated below:
English dictionaries are not normally permitted to be taken into an examination room by any student. An English-English dictionary will be available in each multiple occupancy examination venue and may be used for reference purposes by all students (EXCEPT those taking examinations for the Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice). Students with modified assessment provisions who are in their own rooms, however, will be expected to provide their own English dictionary if required, which must be a clean copy subject to checking by the reader/invigilator.
Exceptionally, the following groups of students may use their own mono-lingual paper English-English dictionaries:
(a) Students with modified assessment provisions, provided there is a recommendation for use of a personal dictionary from Disability Assist Services. The dictionaries must be clean copies, subject to checking by invigilators.
(b) Students undertaking Modules ELC100, ELC100B, ELC200, ELC200B, ELC300, ELC300B, ELC301 which are designed for non-native speaker students wishing to further improve their level of English. There will be no requirement for these dictionaries to be checked by invigilators.
