Exam venues and seating 

The venue and seating for each of your exams is listed on your personalised timetable in Student One. Be sure to plan ahead and know well in advance of your exam date and time and how to get to your exam venue. Try to arrive at your exam venue 30 minutes prior to the commencement of your exam.

Students with disabilities and carers

If you have a disability or are caring for someone with a disability make sure you register with AccessAbility Services when you first enrol in your unit. 

You can apply for a personalised equitable assessment arrangement but you'll need to have registered with AccessAbility Services at least four weeks before your assessment. 

Your personalised assessment arrangements will then be sent to your Swinburne student email address by the Exams and Assessment Team.  

If you have not contacted AccessAbility Services at least four weeks before your assessment there may not be time to put your arrangements in place.
