Alternative arrangements

It’s your responsibility to ensure you can make your scheduled exams on time. In some circumstances, alternative examination arrangements can be made.

Exam timetable clash

If two of your exams are scheduled for the same time, your personal timetable on studentConnect will state 'CLASH’ and it will list the alternate session you’ve been assigned to, so you don’t need to do anything.

Make sure you arrive at your exam venue 20 minutes before the exam’s start time because you’ll need to sign a Student Declaration form stating that you haven't seen the exam paper before and you haven't spoken to anyone who has already sat the exam.

Disability or medical condition

If you have a disability or medical condition that means you are unable to complete exams under regular conditions, alternative arrangements can be made. Examples include alternative venues, extra time or use of a computer. The adjustment must be clearly related to the functional impact of your disability or medical condition in exam conditions. Make an appointment to discuss your requirements with a disability officer at UniAccess.

Recent injury

If you suffer an illness or disability before exams begin (for example, you injure your writing arm), contact UniAccess to see if special arrangements can be made for you.

Religious beliefs

If you cannot attend an exam due to your religious beliefs, alternative exam arrangements may be made by submitting a special consideration request to your Student Advising Office within five university working days after the publication of the final examination timetable on studentConnect. This includes presenting a letter from your religious leader, indicating you are a member of the congregation and will be unable to attend the scheduled exam.

Elite athletes

Alternative exam arrangements may be made for you by submitting a special consideration request to your Student Advising Office at least four weeks prior to the exam period; unless it is a deferred exam where applications must be received within three university working days after the initial exam. You can sit the exam at the scheduled time away from the University or you may require a deferred exam.



Deferred or supplementary exams

If you’re sitting a deferred or supplementary exam, you are still required to read the information relating to main exams to ensure you’re fully prepared.

Timetable and results

Your personal timetable will display the date, time and venue for your exams on studentConnect 10 days before the exam period.

If you pass your supplementary exam, you’ll receive a grade of PS (Pass Supplementary). No mark will show on your record; however, a mark of 50 per cent will be used to calculate your weighted average mark (WAM) and grade point average (GPA).

If you fail your supplementary exam, you’ll receive a grade of FS (Fail Supplementary). The original mark will show on your record and be used to calculate your WAM and GPA.
