The only exception to not sitting an examination at the designated time is because of documented illness or unavoidable disruption. In these circumstances you may wish to submit a 'Notification of disruption to studies'. Information about unavoidable disruption and the notification process is available at Policy Central: http://www.mq.edu.au/policy/
If a Supplementary Examination is granted as a result of the 'Notification of disruption to studies' the examination will be scheduled after the conclusion of the official examination period. Supplementary examination dates will not be negotiated. If you are granted a supplementary examination you must ensure that you are available for the exam. The university cannot accommodate holidays you may have booked.
You are advised that it is Macquarie University policy not to set early examinations for individuals or groups of students.
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.
Extensions and penalties
Extensions to assignments is at the discretion of the unit convenor. It is the responsibility of the student to prove to the convenor that there has been unavoidable disruption. Please submit a 'Notification of disruption to studies' and request an extension. The online form will ask you to provide evidence of the disruption.
Marks will be deducted for late submissions in the absence of an approved extension. Marks will be deducted at the rate of 10% of the available marks per day.
