Review your exam timetable

Accessing your exam timetable

Six weeks before the start of the exam period, you can view your personal exam timetable in either:

For all exam timetable release dates, see exam dates.

If you have registered with Disability Services and have requested alternative assessment arrangements, this will not appear in your timetable. We will notify you of your specific arrangements by email one to two weeks before the exam period.

Check your exam timetable

It’s important to check your exam timetable details carefully. Misreading your exam timetable is not grounds to apply for special consideration.

What to check Help with this step
Ensure all your exams are listed.

There are a few reasons why a unit may not appear in your exam timetable:

  • there's no exam scheduled for that unit. Check the unit guide or Handbook for assessment details
  • your faculty or teaching department is running the exam (not centrally administered)
  • there's a problem with your enrolment
  • there's an error in the exam timetable.

If you're unsure, check with your faculty or teaching department.

Check whether you have an exam clash.

If you have a clash, we'll move one of your exam start times so you can sit both exams on the same day (you don't have to do anything). Usually one will be in the morning and one in the afternoon.

Because you'll sit one of your exams at a different time to the other students, you need to stay in the exam venue for the duration of both exams to ensure you don't have contact with any students who have already sat or are about to sit that exam.

You must bring your lunch with you to the exam venue. You can also bring printed study materials with you so you can study between your two exams. You're not allowed to use any electronic devices (e.g. mobile phones, iPads, laptops, Kindle) as these may be used as a means of wireless communication.

We'll email you two weeks before the exam period outlining the exact arrangements for that day.

If you've discontinued or withdrawn from either of the clash units and intend to sit only one exam, you must advise Examination Services and confirm the new arrangements.

Check the exam format (written, oral or practical) and what you can bring.

It's your responsibility to check with the teaching department if an exam is closed or open book, or about what you bring into the exam room. For more on this, see exam rules.

If you've got any questions, ask your teaching department or lecturer.

If you have a written exam, check if it is paper-based or electronic.

Check your exam timetable in the Web Enrolment System (WES) to see which exam type you'll be sitting.

  • Electronic exams are marked E-EXAM.
  • Paper-based are marked PAPER.

If you’re sitting an electronic exam (eExam), check whether your Monash password is due to expire. If so, make sure you update it before exam day.

Know the location of each exam. This will display the exam venue address and other details. See also venues, seating and starting times.
Know your seat number for each exam.

You need to know your exact seat number for each exam, so you may wish to print your exam timetable and bring it with you on the day.

If WES doesn't list your seat number, it could be for a range of reasons. Don't worry, there will be some spare desks at the exam venue that cater for students without a seat number.

Seat numbering doesn't apply to off-campus or Open Universities Australia exams unless held at the Caulfield Racecourse venue.

Check all information again, closer to exam time, as details may change without warning.

You can easily check your exam details on the go using the Monash app on your iPhone or Android.

In the app, click the Exam timetable tile. The location icon links to a map of your exam venue.
