Central examinations are organised and conducted by Student Administration in accordance with ACU policies and regulations.

A manual has been developed to assist Heads of Schools, Course Coordinators, Lecturers in Charge and School Administrative Officers with the preparation and submission of materials required to conduct central exams. The Examination Procedures for Academic Staff manual is available online.

2013 Important Dates for central examinations are listed on the Examination Information for Staff web page.


Results for all units taught in standard study periods must be submitted not later than two weeks after the relevant unit’s nominated examination date.

The timely submission/data entry and finalisation of grades is essential. Not allocating a final grade (ie the grading code is left blank) by the submission due date will create delays in the processes, additional administrative work and may result in ineligible students being granted a supplementary assessment. Where a student has unit(s) with no final grade(s) allocated, the unit(s) will be treated as a pass grade until a final result is entered.

Results should only be left blank if there is outstanding work which hasn't yet been assessed - eg where the student has handed in work, but assessment hasn't been completed, or where the student has approval to hand assessment in late.
