Exams and end of semester assessments
Examination procedures are frequently reviewed and changed. The Examinations office advises that students keep up to date with information by visiting Exams and results.
COVID-19 update: End of semester assessments (including online tests) are being conducted instead of exams in Semester 1 2021. Check your emails and Moodle for updates and ask your Course Coordinator if you have questions.
If you need a place to complete your online test, you can book a study space or a computer at one of the campus libraries.
If you need to apply to defer your end of semester online tests follow the Special Consideration – Deferred examination process explained on the Special Consideration website.
You are obligated to be aware of and to uphold all of the rules, rights and responsibilities associated with your exams.
Exam and online test issues
Read your online test instructions carefully for guidance on what to do if you experience issues (such as internet or Moodle issues) during your test.
Student Advocacy can support and advise students charged with an exam breach or Academic misconduct associated with your end of semester assessment.
If you are very unwell on the day of your exam, or there are exceptional circumstances beyond your control that impact your ability to sit for your exam you should not attend your exam and apply for Special consideration. The Higher Education Examinations Procedure states that "Students who are unwell on the day of their examination should not enter the examination room and attempt the examination; they are encouraged to apply for a deferred examination". Be aware strict timelines apply - you must submit your application no later than three working days after your exam.
It is important to stay informed by regularly checking your student email once grades are published in case you receive an important letter from the University. If you are concerned about a letter you have received, please contact us for support. We can help in a variety of ways, including assisting you if you believe you have grounds for final grade appeal.
