Familiarise yourself with the instructions, processes and expectations governing in-semester tests and end of semester exams.
Your end-of-semester exams will usually take place directly after StuVac (study vacation week) in Weeks 15 and 16 of the semester.
In-semester tests, quizzes and take-home exams may also make up part of the assessment of a unit of study. These are arranged by the unit of study coordinator.
With the return to on-campus delivery for all domestic and onshore students in 2023, we are returning to on-campus exams for most students.
When exam timetables are released, your timetable will include details on the type of exams you will be sitting. You should refer to the Canvas site for each of your units for more details on what format the exams or assignments will be in.
Supervised exams are conducted either on campus (paper-based) or online through ProctorU’s Live+ system. This type of exam is supervised by an invigilator to make sure that they are being conducted in line with the University’s rules. Students who are studying on campus are usually expected to attend exams on campus, whereas remote and online students will use ProctorU’s Live+ system.
Monitored exams are conducted through ProctorU’s Record+ system. Your screen is recorded while you sit your exam and artificial intelligence software will analyse this to make sure that you are following all exam rules.
Inclusion and Disability Services helps students who have a disability to access reasonable adjustments for exams. They can also help students who have a temporary condition or injury and require adjustments for their exam. Find out about registering with Inclusion and Disability Services.
Check the common adjustments converted for online delivery. Adjustments for your in-person exam will be included on your exam timetable.
If you have a condition or circumstance that will affect you taking your exam in the short-term, just for a day, a week, or a few months, you may be able to apply for Special consideration.
