Get assessment advice
If you're having difficulties with your assessment or need advice, there are a number of support services available. In the first instance, talk to your unit convenor. They may have useful advice regarding your academic approach.
What to do if you're failing
If you have almost passed
If you come very close to passing a unit and meet the other eligibility criteria, you may be granted a Conceded Pass for that unit.
If you have passed all of your units except one and meet the other eligibility criteria, you may be able to apply for a Supplementary Assessment (Last to Complete).
If you need help making a case to the university, the SSAA can provide independent advocacy services in certain circumstances.
If you think your mark is inaccurate
If you think you've been marked incorrectly, you can request a recheck of your mark.
If you're unwell or have special circumstances
If you're unwell at the time of your exam or assessment, or have special circumstances, you may be able to:
- apply for an extension,
- apply for special consideration, or
- make alternative assessment arrangements (check which adjustment applies to your situation).
If you're unwell leading up to or on the day of your exam, you may be able to apply for special consideration if eligible, but it is for serious cases that meet specific conditions.
If you're having difficulty with your study, there are several support options available to you.
