Final course exams are held at the end of every semester and trimester. You may have to sit a formal exam, depending on the course/s you are enrolled in. Not all courses have formal exams and your course outline accessed via UoNline, will advise the methods of assessment.
Exams run from Mondays to Saturdays, (mornings, afternoons and evenings) and you'll need to be available during the entire exam period and the supplementary exam period. Three exams in a 48 hour period is the maximum grouping in which your exams may occur. You won't be able to request a reschedule of your exams in the event of travel plans.
You'll be advised via email of your exam dates and times during the semester or trimester, and this is sent to you approximately four weeks before the start of the exam period. A further email advising your exam room is sent two weeks prior.
Exams can take place at all University campuses and you will be allocated a seat to sit your exam at the campus at which you are enrolled for each course. As per the Course Management and Assessment Procedure Manual, students are expected to sit examinations at the site of their enrolment.
