Use of a Bilingual Dictionary

English Language Assistance - using a bilingual dictionary:


If English is not your first language and you are sitting examinations in CIT you may be entitled to use a bilingual dictionary in your examinations.

If you want to apply for permission to use a dictionary in your examinations you will need to complete and submit this Use of Dictionary Form (MS Word - 280KB).

Students must fill out a copy of the form each year and ask your Head of Department to sign it. You must hand in a copy of the form into the Examinations Office in the Melbourn Building in plenty of time before the exam (at least 2 weeks before the start of the exam period).

Students should read the rules carefully. Please read the Exam Rules here (PDF - 91KB).

You must bring in your own dictionary to the exam and electronic dictionaries are not allowed.

For further queries please email the Examinations Office: or ring 021 433 5090.
