Examination seating plan
A seating plan is prepared for examinations scheduled at the Edinburgh Campus in Sports Hall 2 (previously SH1, situated in building 2 of the Centre for Sport and Exercise on the campus map) and James Watt Study Hub. Although examinations taking place outwith these two venues do not have dedicated seating your seating plan will advise you of the venue your examination is taking place.
A seating plan is also prepared for examinations taking place at the Scottish Borders and Dubai Campus.
Students should ensure that they have their seat number before entering the examination halls. If you have an examination in the above locations but do not have a seat number please contact Academic Registry, the Scottish Borders Campus or the Dubai Campus.
