How To Pass UNISA Supplementary Examinations

How To Pass UNISA Supplementary Examinations


Here are a few helpful tips from students studying with us and from around the web!


1. Study everything; do not stick to past papers

This provides you with valuable knowledge of the course and you wouldn’t get thrown off with a new style of question during the exams. Set out a realistic timetable for your study. Write down your exam dates, and then organize your study time accordingly. Allocate more time to courses you find more difficult. Cramming your text doesn’t help.


2. Use mind maps as a method of making notes

A Mind Map is visual map of your ideas, laid out according to importance and centered on a central thought. Take the central subject and then organize your notes around this point.

3. Self-attempt exam papers

Attempt exam papers by yourself first and then meet together in your study group to discuss your answers. Study groups work well only if you are prepared to put in the effort.

4. Create an exam atmosphere

Write answers as if you were literally in the exam room – time yourself using standard exam times. Be sure to complete the past paper under exam conditions as this will give you a perfect idea of how ready you are for the exam.

5. For Multiple choice exams

Use the process of elimination to arrive at the correct answer. Try to anticipate the correct response before you are distracted by seeing the options that your instructor has provided. If you see the response that you anticipated, circle it and then check to be sure that none of the other responses is better. Eliminate the options you know for sure are wrong and select the best option that answers the question.

Plan Your UNISA Studies: 7 Tips to Consider

 Plan Your UNISA Studies: 7 Tips to Consider

Cathren has been kind enough to explain to us how she plans her studies and keeps track of all the modules she still needs to pass to complete her qualification.

  1. When planning your studies always consult your curriculum it tells you how many modules you need to do to pass that year
  2. Compile a spreadsheet with the modules you passed and what year they fall under.
    1. (See the Example Spreadsheet for more information)
  3. Before choosing your modules, calculate how many modules you need to pass to complete an academic year. For example: the BADMIN degree has 32 modules; the first year is 12 modules, second year 10 and third year 10.
  1. Look at your compulsory modules and do those first – they normally form the prerequisites for the second year and sometimes third depending on your degree.
  2. Each degree normally has two majors. The first is determined by the degree. In the case of BADMIN degree; it is Public Admin and you choose the second major.
  3. As long as you meet the prerequisites you can register the modules of your choice from the second year.
  4. Lastly, register for the amount of modules you are comfortable and can cope with. The speed at which you complete your degree is up to you.
