Clashing exams

If you are timetabled to sit two examinations on the same day and time you must complete a Clash of examinations advice form and lodge it at a Student Service Centre at least one week prior to the commencement of the examination period. You will then:

  • receive a letter confirming your exam details including new seat numbers (disregard the seat numbers displayed on the web)
  • be required to sit both examinations on the same day (morning and afternoon sessions)
  • be supervised throughout the lunch period
  • need to bring your own lunch because you will not be permitted to leave the examination room during the lunch period
