Once released, read your exam timetables carefully and check on a regular basis for any updates.

Mis-reading the exam timetable will not be accepted as sufficient cause for failing to attend an exam. Please see exam rules and regulations for more information.

  • morning session starts at 8.30am

VU campus exam times

Please check your exam timetable carefully for exam start times at VU campuses - they may not be the same as Melbourne Showgrounds start times.

Clashing exams

If you are timetabled to sit two examinations on the same day and time you must:

  1. complete a Clash of examinations advice form
  2. lodge it at a Student Service Centre at least one week before the examination period begins.

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.
