Trimester 3 2022 exam arrangements

In Trimester 3, most exams and final assessments will be delivered through your CloudDeakin unit site due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19.

The Trimester 3 2022 exam period will be held Thursday 9 - Friday 17 February, 2023.  Please check StudentConnect for your individual exam timetable (released on Monday 12 December, 2022) and your unit site for individual exam details.

All exams will be subject to usual exam conditions:

  • Check your exam timetable in StudentConnect carefully.
  • You can set or change your location for time zone purposes until close of business Thursday 26 January, 2023 by completing the Nominate or change of exam location form. No further changes will be possible after this date. Updating this information is important for the timing of your exam.
  • Carefully read the details included in your unit site for your exam.

You'll be advised in your unit site which format your exams will be. The different formats are:

  • a supervised online exam. If your unit is scheduled to have a supervised online exam, information on how to prepare and sit your exam will be advised in your CloudDeakin unit site.
  • a timed exam. If your unit uses this format you should ensure you have everything you need when you commence to ensure you can focus on your exam.
  • a timed exam available during a 24 hour window. You might have a 2 hour exam and can choose when you start but remember you only have 2 hours to complete it and you need to ensure you finish and submit it before the end of the 24 hour window.
  • an exam which you will download to work on, then return to the site to upload it. Average working times for these exams should be listed in your unit site (the full window of time will generally be 24 hours). These exams have strict deadlines. There will be no extensions or allowance for late submissions, so make sure you allow enough time at the end of your exam to upload your work before the submission time finishes.

Access Plan adjustments remain in place and will be applied to exams where applicable.

Plan your time carefully as you may have exams of varying durations and submission times that overlap. These are not considered clashes and exam dates and times will not be changed.
