Timing of assessment
Re-scheduling mid-term examinations
This policy has been introduced to ensure that students provide documentary evidence when there is a conflict with any mid-term examinations which are scheduled outside of normal class time.
The relevant Academic Board Resolution is titled Assessment and Examination of Coursework, effective 9 December 2004 and is available to view online .
Steps to Follow
- If a unit of study that you are enrolled in schedules an assessment outside of your official (i.e. timetabled) class meeting time and it results in a clash with another unit that you are enrolled in, you are able to request that an alternative arrangement be offered.
- To request an alternative arrangement for the assessment, you must provide the relevant Unit of Study Coordinator with proof of a timetable clash. This proof can be in the form of your University timetable or evidence that you are enrolled in a particular tutorial group prior to the assessment time being advised.
- For any assessment scheduled during your official class meeting time, you are not allowed to reschedule, except as Special Consideration criteria apply.
