Due to the large increase in student numbers; LICs may be required to write an alternative examination paper. The numbers of students enrolled in some units preclude the scheduling of all students in one examination seating.

Examinations may be held within the examination period within the period 8am to 8 pm Monday to Friday (including public holidays) and 8 am to 5 pm Saturdays, throughout the examination periods.

For computer based exams, it will not be possible to schedule single exam seatings for units where the number of students enrolled in the unit exceeds the number of computers available on the campus. Alternative examination papers may be required to accommodate the multiple sitting of the computer examinations.

Number of computers available for exams on each campus:

Ballart – 20 computers available
Brisbane – 70 computers available
Canberra – 24 computers available
Melbourne – 105 computers available
North Sydney – 125 computers available
Strathfield – 123 computers available

All LICs should be aware of the students enrolled in their units studying under an Education Inclusion Plans (EIP) developed by the Equity and Disability Unit and approved by the Head of School.

In the event of a specified examination adjustment that requires a spread of examinations for a student, the student may be required to sit the examination in an alternative examination session on either side of, and as close as possible to, the scheduled time.

The Equity and Disability Unit will provide Student Administration with a list of all examination adjustment requirements not later than close of business on the Friday of lecture week 9 (27 April).

Examinations will be scheduled as outlined in the Examination Policy and Procedures – Staff.; Lecturers-in-Charge of should be familiar with the Examination Policy and Procedures – Staff; the Examination Policy and Procedures – Students and the Guidelines for Heads of Schools and Lecturers on Disability Examination Adjustments.


Results for all units in standard semesters must be submitted within two weeks of the nominated examination date.

Results should only remain blank if all assessment requirements have not been completed.

Submission of Results via Student Connect is TE&Rs recommended method. Please refer to the user guides for entering results and the link for Banner reports on the Staff Results page.

Where a student cannot be awarded a final grade for a unit at the end of the study period, the grade will remain blank. If no final result grade has been assigned to the unit within twelve months of the end of the study period, the blank grade will be converted to Fail – NN. Once all blank grades are rolled to fail, the term code is removed from the nightly run on the Student System. No further grades entered for the term will be registered on the student’s transcript.
