- If you are unable to sit an end-of-semester examination scheduled during the standard examination period for medical reasons or because of other unavoidable circumstances, you may apply to sit the examination at a later date. You can do this by applying for a deferred examination.
- If you are unable to sit for a mid-semester examination or practical test set by a school (ie. those conducted in class or during the semester), seek advice from that school on what you must do. Applications should be submitted to a Student Centre or to the relevant school.
You should familiarise yourself with Section 6 of 3.10.11 Examinations Procedures of the UQ Assessment policy and Part 1A of the General Award Rules regarding deferred examinations and be aware of the acceptable grounds for approval. You will find a link to the General Award Rules on the University Rules page.
Please note: Misreading the examinations timetable is NOT an approved reason for applying for a deferred examination.
