A number of changes have been made to the ACU examination period due to the introduction of centrally run supplementary examinations.
The Examinations Unit will be running central supplementary examinations for the first time this year, following the changeover to the new Supplementary Assessment Policy.
Based on Faculty and School feedback the Academic Administration Committee recommended the implementation of centrally run supplementary examinations and has amended the academic calendar to support this. Academic Board accepted this recommendation at the November 2016 meeting.
Changes to the exam period include:
The examination period will now be two weeks in duration, rather than three weeks
Three examinations sessions will be held each day, rather than two
In consultation with Schools some exams will be scheduled on Saturdays
The results release date will be brought forward a week
Centrally run Supplementary Exams will be an opt in option for Lecturers in Charge and will be on a unit by unit basis.
These changes take effect from the Semester 1, 2017 examinations.
