Use of Dictionaries in Exams

Normally, dictionaries shall not be used during an examination in UCD, except for students on an international exchange programme, whose native language is not English. These students may bring a hard copy, English-native language dictionary into an examination.

However, if a Module Coordinator wishes to allow all students to use a dictionary in an examination, the permission to use a dictionary and the restrictions of use shall be clearly stated on the front cover of the Exam Question Paper and communicated to all students at the beginning of the module delivery.
