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.
  • 619 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.
