Your attention is drawn to changes to the University’s General Award Rules (GAR) relating to assessment which took effect from 1 January 2013, specifically:
 
GAR 1A.14.4
A student who attends and attempts whole or part of the original examination will not be eligible for a deferred examination.
 
The previous provision for students to disregard their performance at the original examination on the basis of falling ill during the examination is no longer available.  Examination scripts for students who attend whole or part of the original examination will be marked / graded accordingly.
Refer to ‘Grounds for applying for deferred examinations’ at http://www.uq.edu.au/myadvisor/grounds-for-applying-for-deferred-examinations
 
Applications for deferred examinations:  Applications are due no later than 5 calendar days after the date the original examination is held.   Medical certificates must be obtained no later than two (2) business days after the original examination.
 
Applications for supplementary assessment:  Online applications via mySI-net are due within 5 calendar days of the release of results.
 
* NOTE:  For students who will not be available to attend campus for the Semester 2 2013 Deferred and Supplementary examination period, it may be possible to undertake your examinations at an external venue (conditions apply).  Internally enrolled students must make an application to sit off campus at the time they apply for a deferred examination or a supplementary assessment.  Off-campus arrangements will be subject to approval of the deferred or supplementary examination, and the availability of an off-campus venue. 
 
As examination timetables are not finalised until a few days prior to the commencement of the examination period, students must ensure they can access the external examination venue at any time during the entire examination period.  Externally enrolled students must also advise their nominated examination centre when submitting an application for deferred or supplementary examination.
 
Students undertaking deferred or supplementary assessment will not be eligible to graduate at the December graduation ceremonies.
