Deakin University operates a policy of anonymous marking for all centrally organised examinations wherever reasonably practicable. Student names are hidden from the markers in order to ensure that marking is fair and is not influenced by factors other than the standard of work.
Information regarding Deakin University's Anonymous Marking in Examinations Policy can be obtained from The Guide.
Car pooling is available on all Campuses and may meet your transport needs to and from your exams. See the TravelSmart website for more information.
