Special exam arrangements

Special exam arrangements are offered to supports students with a with a disability or medical condition by providing adjustments to the standard conditions under which exams are administered.

We will consider the nature of the student's disability or medical condition and make recommendations on the arrangements that would minimise the impact in the exam setting.

Exams may be run by the Examinations Office or the College, who are advised of the recommendations via email. The student is copied into the email correspondence. Academics may request variations to the recommendations that ensure the academic integrity of the course is maintained. The Examinations Office or College makes the arrangements and advises the students of the time, location and arrangements of the exam.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have a valid EAP in place with Access & Inclusion at least two (2) weeks prior to examination periods.

The deadline to renew EAPs and request Special (Alternative) Exam Arrangements (SEAs) for Semester 2 2019 is:

  • Friday 9 August for mid-semester exams; and 
  • Friday 11 October for end of semester exams.

Please note that students who do not inform Access & Inclusion within this timeframe will not have their SEAs implemented for the examiniation period. New registrations after the deadline will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
