If I forget my student ID card, am I still able to enter the exam room? 

  • As a student, you must have a valid current student ID card.
  • You can go to the Student Centre and obtain a temporary student ID. The document must have a photograph, your name, student number, proof you are enrolled in the course and the date/ time of the exam.
  • If the exam is held outside Student Centre hours, other photographic ID is acceptable.


What happens if I am late for the exam?

  • You will need permission from the examination supervisor and will only be able to enter the room during the first 60 minutes of the exam (for courses of 2 units or more).
  • If the reason for being late meets the eligibility criteria for a deferred exam, you may choose not to enter the exam room and instead apply for a deferred exam.


Can I bring a calculator into the exam room? 

  • Make sure your calculator has been approved, authorised and labeled by the Student Centre.
  • If you do not have a Casio FX82 on the day of the exam, you can buy one from UQU Secondhand Texts & Stationery.


What happens if I get sick during the exam?

  • If you attend and attempt the whole or part of the exam, you are not eligible for a deferred exam unless there are exceptional circumstances.
  • You will need a medical certificate dated the day of the exam detailing the suddenness of the onset of the condition, your predisposition to the condition, the seriousness of the symptoms and the impact on your ability to remain and complete the exam.
