4. Examinations

4.1 Central and deferred examinations

Central examinations are conducted by Student Administration in the central examination period (refer to Examination Policy and Procedures - Students).

A student who, through illness or other exceptional cause beyond their control, is unable to attend an examination may lodge an application to sit a deferred examination with Student Administration, not later than five working days after the day of the examination (refer to Examination Policy and Procedures - Students).

Examination scripts from central or deferred examinations are collected from Student Administration by the Lecturer-in-Charge for marking. Sessional staff must make prior arrangements to collect the scripts.

Lecturers-in-Charge are required to provide past examination papers in accordance with the Examination Policy and Procedures - Staff.

4.2 School examinations

Schools may conduct examinations and class tests and set other types of assessment tasks which will be described in the unit outline. Unless the Lecturer-in-Charge otherwise determines and notifies students via the unit outline, the procedures contained in the Examination Policy and Procedures - Students will apply to the extent appropriate to School Examinations but will not apply to class tests or other assessment tasks.
