NOUN Students Examination Guidelines and Regulations.
The University will not condone any form of examination misconduct. Students are advised to abide by the following rules and guidelines

- Students should normally write examinations at their designated centres.
- Students must bring to the examination hall their writing materials and any other material, which may be permitted by the University for a particular examination. These materials must have been listed as essential for certain question(s).
- Students arriving an hour after the commencement of an examination shall be allowed to sit for the examination only at the discretion of the Supervisor. Such a student will not be allowed extra time.
Note: Don’t use this as an excuse to attend late, your supervisor still decides
