HELPFUL TIPS FOR NOUN NEW STUDENTS TAKING THEIR FIRST E-EXAMINATION (2020_1 E-Exam)
Hi guys, just as you know that the 2020_1 E-Examination starts on the 15th of October 2020, with GST102 being the first course. By now you all should have downloaded the 2020_1 E-Examination timetable and also the 2020_1 GST timetable. If you haven’t, then click HERE to download both time-tables.
Now straight to why we are here. I never planned to make this article but due to high demand, I decided to put up this article for the benefit of all E-exam students, especially the freshers.
BY NOW I SHOULDN’T BE TELLING YOU TO GET TO SCHOOL 30MINS AHEAD OF EXAM TIME.
LOGGING IN TO TAKE YOUR EXAM:
Old students by now should know how this works. But for the new students logging in is as simple as ABC. When you get into the exam hall, you will be assigned a space to take your exam. A seat, a table, and a computer, either a desktop computer or laptop. Don’t panic both operations are the same. You will be shown an icon either at the top left or top right on the screen. Click the icon and a login page will be displayed. Insert your matric number in lowercase (small letters) as your username and password, then click login. Immediately you login, check the left side of your screen, you will see your course slated for that period. Let say you are having GST102 at 7:30 am. By 7:30 am when you log in you will find GST102, just click on it and immediately the exam page will be displayed for you to start attempting your exam.
BE CAUTIOUS OF TIME:
While taking your exam, the most important thing is to be cautious of the time. During your exam, you will be presented with a countdown timer on the screen, make sure to always check the countdown time to know how to manage the time you have left. Don’t sleep on one question, once you don’t know the answer to a particular question, just skip and move to another. The skipped questions will always be available for an attempt until you run out of time. Look by the right-hand side on your screen, you will see a numbering either from 1-70 or from 1-120 or more, depending on the course unit. Now if you look at the numbering you will see that the boxes containing some numbers are white and black while some are just white. The ones with black and white are the Questions you have attempted, while the white or blank once indicates that you haven’t attempted or you skipped it.
TIP TO GET FILL-IN-THE-GAP ANSWERS:
We all know that NOUN is sweet but na Exam kill am, especially fill-in-the-gap questions. For the new students who don’t know much about NOUN E-exams, we have two types of questions, multi-choice questions (MCQ) which are popularly known as OBJECTIVES, and FILL BLANK QUESTIONS (FBQ) popularly known as FILL IN THE GAP. The important and helpful thing most students don’t know is that some of the fill in the gap answers can be found in the objectives. So you have to be smart, you need to read the question and understand before you start picking your answers.
CALCULATOR FOR CALCULATION COURSES:
By now I’m sure you all are aware that you can’t go into the hall with anything aside from your clearance documents, your ID card, and also your pen. YES! Any other material taken into the hall is counted as exam malpractice or misconduct. I know by now, the question in your mind is, how do we solve math, and how do we calculate with a calculator? Well, in the hall you will be provided with a blank sheet, if you are not provided then ask any of the invigilators. Now for a calculator, every system has an inbuilt calculator, which should help. For those who don’t know how to locate the inbuilt calculator on their system, I had put up an article on that last year, CLICK HERE to read the article.
SUBMISSION OF EXAM:
After attempting the questions, you are to submit, to view your score/grade. Once you are done, click on SUBMIT, then click on SUBMIT ALL again to confirm your submission. Once you submit you will be presented with your score and grade, I don’t want to go deep into the explanation of score, grade, GPA, and CGPA. But make sure you focus on the grade, forget about the score. The grade is most important as that’s what you will be adding to your TMA score to know your total grade for that particular course. The grade is over 70, so if you get to see grade-20, it means you scored 20/70, then you add your TMA score to the 20 you just scored to confirm your total grade. Let say for example you scored 20/70 in GST102 and scored 20/30 during your Tma, Then you add 20+20 which is 40, that 40 is over 100 (40/100). Which means you have an E on that course? As 40 is categorized under E. This is how you know your fate even before the release of the result. We have put up a page where we explained all you need to know about Grade, GPA, and also CGPA, also on this page you can manually or automatically calculate your Grade, GPA, or CGPA. CLICK HERE to view the page.
I think the above explanation is enough for you to kick start your exams with full confidence.
Also, past questions and answers are very vital! Don’t joke with them; focus on them during the exam, read your course materials months or weeks before the exam. Once it’s a week or some days to the exam we advise you to focus on past questions. We have provided you all with past questions ranging from 2017 to 2019_2.
