Preparing for your exams | 2023 Semester 2
The MGA team wishes you all the best with your upcoming exams! Below is some important information you need to know before your exam and what to do if you need to defer.
#1: Check your exam timetable and venue again as it may have changed.
Be sure to double check the date, time and venue of your final assessments. You can do so by following the steps below.
- Log into Allocate+.
- Click the Timetable tab (from the menu along the top).
- From the top right drop-down menu, select All Weeks.
- Your assessments are in light blue in the final assessment period.
- Click here for more information on How to view your final assessments in Allocate+.
#2: If you are feeling unwell on the day, don’t sit for your exam.
You don’t have to sit the exam if you’re sick – in fact, you shouldn’t! The same goes for other extenuating circumstances that may befall you at the last minute. You may be eligible to defer your final assessment if such situations arise at the eleventh hour.
Reasons for deferral may include:
- medical condition
- mental health condition
- loss or bereavement
- family (relationship breakdown)
- victim of crime
- financial/employment issues
- military, jury or emergency services obligations
- obligations as athlete, artist or performer registered with Elite Student Performer Scheme or as representative of University in other key events and programs
- carer responsibilities
- religious or cultural obligations
- technical disruption
- other exceptional circumstances beyond your control.
However, other issues like technical issues or mistakes (such as getting the time or location of your assessment wrong) will not be considered under the eligibility criteria.
Make sure to apply before 11:55pm on its set date. You can find out more about applying for a deferral here.
#3: You can also apply for a rescheduled deferred assessment.
If you’ve already deferred your exam but still need more time, you may be eligible to apply for a rescheduled deferred assessment even later. Please note, the eligibility criteria for this is much stricter. In most cases, you will need to prove that an ongoing or extreme circumstance has occurred.
Applications for this must also be completed within 90 calendar days of the results release for the original assessment period.
Again, be sure to apply before 11:55pm on its set date. You can read more about rescheduling a deferred assessment here.
