Your exam timetable is published on 29 April
Your exam timetable for semester one is published in the Web Enrolment System (WES).
You should check your exam timetable to make sure all your units are listed. If anything is missing, contact your faculty.
If there's a clash (two or more exams on at the same time), wait for us to sort it out. We'll write to you two weeks before your exams to let you know what we've arranged.
Check that you understand the exam format—written, practical or oral. And check with your lecturer to see if you can bring books, calculators or notes with you (open book) or not.
See exam rules for more detail.
