Semester  2, 2015 central examinations are currently running  from 2 to 20 November 2015.

The new Examination Distribution rooms are now running on  all campuses. There have been a few minor  adjustments but overall we are happy with how these are running.

  • 16,602 students  have one or more central examinations scheduled.
  • 35,123 exam sittings  have been scheduled.
  • 833 examinations requiring examination  adjustments have been scheduled.
  • 2,943 shifts have been rostered for examinations supervisors.

350 Applications for Deferred Examination have been received.

Students  who meet the published criteria  and  submit the correct documentation will be approved by Student  Administration. Applications for Deferred Examinations are available  online.

The Deferred Examination  Timetable will be published on  Friday, 4 December.  Semester 2 Deferred  Examinations will be held the week of 14 to 18 December  2015.

The printing  of  main examination papers  not uploaded by Friday, 25 September are now the responsibility of the Lecturer in Charge. The Lecturer in Charge will ensure the examination papers are printed  and  kept secure. The printed examination papers should be delivered to the Examination Distribution Room on Friday, 23 October (papers should  be  delivered Monday,  26 October on the Ballarat and Canberra  campuses).  If the exam paper is to be a ‘write-on’  paper only the front page of the exam paper is printed  on Xerox ‘Pastel Pink’ paper. The questions  and response sections of the exam should be printed on white paper. ACU central exams are always single-sided,  stapled top left corner of the paper.  Number of copies = Number of students  enrolled in the unit, plus 5 spare for each exam venue scheduled.

Examination papers in alternate format required for students with Education Inclusion Plans should be delivered directly to the Examination Distribution Room by the Lecturer  in Charge.

All Lecturers  in Charge of units are expected to be available during the entire central examination period. It is the School’s responsibility to ensure the necessary resources are provided by the School/Faculty to meet the central  examination requirements.


Results should only be left blank if  there is outstanding work which has not yet been assessed eg where the student  has handed in work but the assessment has not been finalised or an Application  for Extension of Time for Submission of an Assessment Task has been completed.

Result Change requests are now coming directly to the Results Section  of TE&R.  Please send  any  results change requests to: stresults@acu.edu.au
