Clear Resealable Plastic Bags for valuables

Published: 3 May 2019

In our efforts to support UNSW’s sustainability strategy Go Plastic Free’ we are rethinking the use of clear resealable plastic bags during exams. The bags were never meant to be single use and we know that many of you reuse the same bag for each exam.  However, going forward, you have the option of reusing your clear resealable plastic bag for your valuables or alternatively, you can choose not to use a bag and instead, just place your valuables under your seat.

Regardless of whether your valuables are in a bag or not, you are not permitted to access these items during at any time during your exam as this is in breach of the exam rules and will lead to an allegation of academic misconduct.
