Exam timetables

We provide you with a personalised timetable for all formal, end-of-semester exams. The link to exam timetables will be provided here when timetables are available.

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

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
  • venue - this will display the type of exam eg. Online: Live+ (ProctorU) or Time-based exam (not using ProctorU)
  • duration of exam
  • reading time (if any)
  • writing time
  • special conditions - if you've been approved for exam adjustments through 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.
  • Online: Review+ (ProctorU) - you will complete the exam through Canvas with AI supervision through ProctorU.
  • Online: Time-based exam - you will complete the exam through Canvas. The format will depend on how the unit of study coordinator sets it.

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. If you have two or more exams scheduled at the same time, you'll receive an email explaining your arrangements.

Assessments scheduled in different time zones

If you have an exam scheduled between 10pm and 7am in the timezone you're living in, you may be eligible for a special arrangement
