Higher education students who receive an E grade may be offered supplementary assessment for the unit in the form of an exam. A formal supplementary exam period applies to semester one and semester two exams. These exams are held at the St Albans campus. Timetables for supplementary exams will be available on MyVU.
Your College or unit of study lecturer will have information on supplementary exams during all other exam periods. If you would like information about all other units of study please follow the advice provided to you by your College.
It is your responsibility to find out whether you have a supplementary exam and when it will be held.
If your mark is between 45 and 49 and your unit is eligible, you may qualify for a supplementary assessment of the unit. You will need to contact your lecturer to find out how the supplementary assessment will be provided.
Supplementary assessments are available in undergraduate, graduate entry bachelor courses and HE non-award courses, where performance is being assessed by the university and postgraduate coursework units. They are not available in:
- honours courses
- the honours component of a degree with honours
- VET enabling or bridging courses
- postgraduate research courses
- where the grade awarded is the outcome of a determination under the Student Misconduct Procedure (as specified in clause 76).
Please refer to the Supplementary Assessment and Conceded Pass Procedure for more information.
