Exam timetables

Your timetable

We provide you with a personalised timetable for all formal, end-of-semester exams. The Semester 1 examination timetable is now available. The timetable for replacement exam period 1 will be available on 1 July.

We update this link for each exam period, so it's best not to bookmark this.

If you have an in-semester test, these are managed by your faculty or school so you won't receive a timetable.

Trouble logging in

If you are unable to log in to the timetable, it is likely that you have no centrally timetabled exams. You should check your unit Canvas site for details on what format the exam will be in, or contact your unit of study coordinator. If you think you should be able to access your timetable, you can submit an enquiry online.

Understanding your exam timetable

Your exam timetable will include:

  • date and time (Sydney local time)
  • venue - this will display the type of exam eg. Online: Live+ (ProctorU) or Open-book exam (not using ProctorU)
  • reading time (if any) - on your Canvas site this will be included in the overall duration
  • writing time
  • special conditions - if you've been approved for exam adjustments through Inclusion and Disability Services, they will be displayed here.

If you haven't received a timetable, or if any of the details on your timetable don’t match your enrolment, you should contact us.

Exam types

  • Online: Live+ (ProctorU) - you will complete the exam through Canvas with supervision from a live proctor through ProctorU (Type A).
  • Online: Record+ (ProctorU) - you will complete the exam through Canvas with AI supervision through ProctorU (Type B).
  • Online: Open-book - you will complete the exam through Canvas. The format will depend on how the unit of study coordinator sets it (Type C).
  • Online: Take-home (short release) (Type D).
  • Online: Take-home (long release) (Type E).

You should refer to the Canvas site for each of your units for details on what format the exam will be in.

Exam clashes

Every effort is being made to avoid clashes as much as possible.

During the final exam period at the end of semester, if you have two or more online exams scheduled at the same time, we will allocate one of them to the replacement exam period. You'll receive an email explaining your arrangements.

If you have an in-semester test held during the semester that clashes with another test, you will need to speak to your unit of study co-ordinator to get advice. If you have a test held during the semester that clashes with one of your classes, you should attend the exam.

Assessments scheduled in different time zones

If you have an exam scheduled between 10.00pm and 6.59am in the timezone you're living in, you may be eligible for a special arrangement
