Alternative assessment arrangements

If you have a disability or medical condition, it may be possible to complete your assessments under alternative or special conditions. Common alternative arrangements include:

  • extra time
  • a special venue
  • specialised technical equipment or furniture.


To be eligible for alternative conditions, you need to register with Disability Support Services. They will assess your situation and make some recommendations. The assessment can take some time so it's important you register as early as possible.

If you're granted alternative assessment arrangements, you can still apply for special consideration if appropriate.

Alternative arrangements

Extra time

If you're granted extra time:

  • we'll advise you one to two weeks before the start of the final assessment period
  • you'll most likely not need to sit at a separate venue.

Special venue

If Disability Support Services considers it necessary for you to sit at a special venue, we'll let you know.

If your assessments are held at a non-Monash venue, we can't guarantee the conditions and arrangements will be the same as sitting at a Monash venue. We'll do all we can to provide a similar experience, but some environmental and other factors may be beyond our control.
