Alternative Examination Arrangements (PDF 221.4 KB)

Alternative examination arrangements are intended to reduce the impact of a long-term or temporary disability or health condition for students sitting formal examinations.

We recommend that students with long-term needs for alternative examination arrangements make an appointment to have their requirements arranged through Disability Services, Student Centre. The Disability Adviser can also assist with other aspects of a student's disability related learning requirements. Information is available at Disability Services.

Students with temporary requirements which do not have an impact on other aspects of their study may use this form to apply for alternative arrangements for their examinations.

If you are ill, you should see a doctor on the day of the examination and the doctor must return the form to the Exams Office within 3 working days of the examination.

Please note that having a medical certificate does not guarantee that a deferred examination will be approved. Further guidelines are contained on the last page of the form.

Review of Assessment

NB students in Transnational study centres - ACK, KDU, SOU and ZUT require a different form. Please email studentenquiry.tne@utas.edu.au to receive the correct form for your centre.

If you are not satisfied with your result:

  • You may request to see your examination script. Your lecturer or another academic will normally be present to provide feedback while you look at the script. You should submit a request in writing to the school 5 working days in advance.
  • For feedback on your overall academic performance in a unit, you should contact your lecturer.
  • You may apply for a review of assessment up to 10 working days after the release of results. Students who have passed a unit must pay $50 for the review. If the mark or grade result goes up, the application fee will be refunded. Results cannot be lowered as a result of a review of assessment.
  • Completed applications must be forwarded to the Examinations Office.

Requests for reviews are sent by the Examinations Office to the Head of School, who will organise for another marker (if practicable) to re-mark the examination and check that all results have been included in the final mark. If you are requesting a review of an assignment, please include a copy of the assignment with the application.

Schools are asked to finalise a review of assessment within four weeks, however this may take longer depending upon the remarking of the assessment. If you have requested a review for a unit for which you have been granted a supplementary grade, please be aware that it is highly unlikely that you will receive the outcome of the review before the date of your supplementary examination.
