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 for the majority of courses in Semester 2 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 on campus.

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. Contact us for assistance.

If you are very unwell on the day of your exam or end of semester online test, or there are exceptional circumstances beyond your control that impact your ability to sit for your exam you should apply for Special consideration and not attempt your exam. 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.

After end of semester assessments

Your official results will be published in my Student Centre. Check Important dates to find out when results will be published for the semesters that you are enrolled in.

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.
