Discipline of Psychological Sciences Examinations


Important Information

Due to Government restrictions on congregating and social distancing, it is unlikely that we will be able to participate in exams in the usual way. Therefore, we have decided to conduct online exams (similar to the mid-term online quizzes on Moodle many of you are used to).  

For further information on how these exams will run please view the full message under Latest Online Communication Updates on the Online Campus page (March 31, 2020 updates). 

Examinations are usually held on campus in Week 13 for each trimester and all students are required to attend and sit their examinations at the scheduled time during exam week. However for Trimester 1 2020 exams will be held online in Week 14.

To assist you in planning please refer to the full Academic Calendar
