If you would like to modify existing assessment arrangements to accommodate a situation of special circumstance, then you should consider applying for alternate assessment arrangements.
Alternate assessment arrangements (AAAs) may be provided if:
Alternate assessment arrangements do not represent a reduction in the academic standard being assessed. You must still meet all requirements of the course and unit.
Contact email@example.com at least four weeks before the first assessment task covered by your application.
Applications must include supporting documentation from a relevant official (e.g. police, lecturer, government body, sporting body, doctor) confirming your exceptional circumstances, official reporting of the lost, stolen or damaged item, or your national or specialist commitment.
For cultural or religious commitments falling on the day of a scheduled exam or assessment task, documentation must include evidence you are not permitted to attend the campus or exam.
You’ll find out if you’ve been granted AAAs via your Swinburne student email account.
Check your Swinburne email regularly or redirect it to an email you check frequently. You’ll need to respond promptly to requests for action or information supporting your application.
Possible outcomes of AAA applications include:
- extension to due date, or
- alternative examination date, or
- permission to re-submit.
You can contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about your application.
