Students must also complete all minimum required patient treatment numbers, x-ray numbers, x-ray report numbers, community service hours, attendance hours and fieldwork hours in order to pass this unit as described in the 2017 Clinic Manual
All supplementary examinations if required will be offered in a VIVA VOCE format.
The DVD assessment is not considered a hurdle assessment. Students are therefore not permitted to re-sit the assessment due to failure on the first attempt.
Clinic Internship I will be awarded pass/fail grades only. In order to achieve a PASS grade, a student must attain a minimum aggregate overall raw mark of 70% across the assessments and satisfactory attendance along with completion of all unit requirements as outlined in the 2017 Clinic Manual. If any of these components are not met by the designated time as stipulated in the Clinic Manual a student will receive a FAIL grade for this unit.

- could not have reasonably been anticipated, avoided or guarded against by the student; and
- was beyond the student's control; and
- caused substantial disruption to the student's capacity for effective study and/or completion of required work; and
- occurred during an event critical study period and was at least three (3) consecutive days duration, and/or

If you apply for Disruption to Study for your final examination, you must make yourself available for the week of July 24 – 28, 2017. If you are not available at that time, there is no guarantee an additional examination time will be offered. Specific examination dates and times will be determined at a later date.
If you are granted a supplementary exam via the Disruption to Studies process, you will have to write a supplementary exam in the supplementary exam period. In this scenario, only your supplementary exam mark will count towards your final exam mark, irrespective of whether or not you attended the final exam in the normal examination period. The submission of a Disruption to Studies form should not be used as a ‘just in case’ strategy.
You are advised that it is Macquarie University policy not to set early examinations for individuals or groups of students. You are expected to ensure that you are available until the end of the teaching semester that is the final day of the official examination period.
