Dear Student,
 
The final Trimester 2, 2013 examinations will be held between Monday 19 August and Friday 23 August. UQ College will issue an exam timetable before 26 July. Please note that the exam timetable may vary from your scheduled lecture and tutorial timetable. Please ensure that you check your UQ emails in the week prior to your examinations for any changes.
 
The date of official release of results will be Friday 30 August 2013.
 
Please note: If you intend to withdraw without academic penalty from your course because your academic performance during the trimester has been affected by ill health or other factors, you should apply as soon as possible and prior to the release of your final results for the trimester. Applications for a retrospective change after the results have been finalised will be assessed against different criteria which require you to have acted in a timely manner. Please send your application for withdrawal without academic penalty with supporting documentation to the UQ College as soon as possible.
