Deferred exam (ED)

A deferred exam is available to students who cannot attend their scheduled formal exam due to special circumstances, such as illness or circumstances beyond your control.

If you are unable to sit your exam/s on the scheduled date due to extenuating circumstances, you may submit an Application for Deferred Exam within three (3) business days from the scheduled date/s of the exam/s you are seeking to defer. Business days are considered Monday to Friday.

You will be advised of the outcome of your Application for Deferred Examination by email within five business days of submitting your application, provided all required information is included. It may take longer to receive an outcome if you are requested to provide additional supporting documentation or if your application is referred to the relevant Subject Coordinator/s for endorsement.

If your application is approved, you will receive an ED result for the approved subject/s at the relevant result release date. Contact Exams ([email protected]) if you have received an ED result but did not apply for a deferred examination.

Supplementary exam/assignment (FSE) or (FSA)

You will receive an FSE or FSA grade if you have been granted a Supplementary Examination or Supplementary Assessment, which provides you with another chance to pass the subject. A supplementary exam is an additional exam (or other form of assessment) that may be approved for a student in the following circumstances:

  • A student who has come close to passing a subject and meets the relevant College guidelines for awarding a supplementary exam.
  • A student who has applied for special consideration due to unexpected circumstances impacting their performance during the first exam.

You must pass the supplementary exam/assessment to achieve an overall pass for the subject.

Supplementary exams are scheduled after the formal exam period, and may not be available for all subjects, or for all examination types.

Results from a supplementary exam are:

  • SP - Pass after sitting a supplementary examination or supplementary assessment.
  • SS - Satisfactory after sitting a supplementary examination or supplementary assessment (a passing level in an ungraded subject).
  • F - Fail - did not meet the passing requirements of a graded subject.
