Examinations Services conducts examinations at the end of each semester, as well as Deferred and Supplementary Examinations in July (Semester 1 topics) and December (Semester 2 topics). Please see the video below for general information.

Sitting Exams


Examinations are normally held in the Sports Centre or the Sturt Gymnasium. A campus map is available so please familiarise yourself with the location of the examination venues as well as the closest car parks and bus stops prior to your examination day.

Allocated seating is another important aspect of examinations. All students sitting an examination in either the Sports Centre or Sturt Gymnasium (excluding alternate venues) must arrive at the examination venue knowing their allocated seat number and it is important to note there is no checking facility within the venue for students to 'check' seat numbers prior to entry. Please refer to Allocated Seating for more information. 

Commencement Times

Examinations are held over three sessions per day Monday-Saturday. Examinations commence at the following times:

  • 8:45am;
  • 1:15pm; and
  • 5:45pm. 

All students should aim to arrive at the examination venue 30 minutes before the commencement of each examination.

Students who arrive late are not permitted to make up that time at the end of the examination.

Students arriving more than 30 mins after the commencement of writing time will not be permitted entry into the examination room.
