Exam Clashes under UC policy

While all due care is taken to avoid exam clashes for each student, if a student discovers a clash (two exams scheduled at the same time) they should contact Student Central on 1300 301 727. One of these exams will be rescheduled during the exam period. The number of consecutive exams allowable under UC policy is as follows:

  • A student must have not more than three exams in a row (consecutively) and no more than two exams on any given day**.
  • *Three exams in a row are deemed to be:
    • A mid-session exam followed by a late session exam followed by an early-session exam the next day, or
    • A late- session exam followed by early and mid-session exams the next day.
  • **Two exams in one day are classified as either two exams in row e.g.: an early session exam and a mid-session exam or they can be separated by a session e.g.: an early session exam and a late session exam.
  • If a student exam load exceeds these rules the student should contact the Examinations Office immediately to have one of the exams rescheduled.

To read the policy in full, please refer to the Assessment Policy and Assessment Procedures documents.
