How to Apply for an Alternative/Deferred Exam or Supplementary Assessment


Alternative Exam Arrangements

If you require alternative arrangements to enable you to sit your examination so you can perform at your best during an examination, certain arrangements can be made.


Deferred Exams

The University recognises that on occasion a medical condition or other exceptional circumstances may impair your ability to attend an examination at the scheduled date and time.  Depending on the circumstances, you may be eligible for a deferred examination, and be permitted to sit your end of semester examinations at a later scheduled time.


Supplementary Assessment

If you fail a course (generally with a grade of three), you may be permitted a second chance to pass the course by being granted a supplementary assessment in certain circumstances.
