Past exam papers, and the final exam in 2021
At the moment we expect the final exam to be a paper exam held on campus during the exam block and invigilated.
The final exam will be an invigilated exam held during the Semester 1 Exam Period. The exam will use a mixture of quiz questions, multiple choice and short answer questions to evaluate your understanding of neurophysiological concepts presented in lectures and lab classes throughout the unit.
To help you prepare for the final exam you may wish to look at past exam papers. These can be accessed from the library using this link.
Note that the structure of the exam in 2021 will be similar to, but not identical to previous years.
