Familiarise yourself with the instructions, processes and expectations governing end-of-semester exams.

Exam dates

Most end-of-semester exams take place directly after StuVac (study vacation week). Formal exams take place in weeks 15 and 16 and replacement exams in week 18.

Mid-semester exams, in-class tests and quizzes and take-home exams may also make up part of the assessment of a unit of study. These are arranged by the unit of study coordinator.

Prepare for your exam

  • Make sure you understand what will be expected of you during your exam by referring to your unit of study outline and information on Canvas.
  • Check your University student email account and Canvas regularly for important announcements leading up to the end of semester
  • Make sure you have your dictionary or calculator approved if required.

Exam dates

It's recommended that you don't make any extracurricular commitments or travel plans throughout the end-of-semester main and replacement exam periods.

Read your unit of study guide thoroughly at the start of semester to make sure you’re aware of when you need to be ready for exams.
