Prepare for your upcoming end‑of-unit assessments or exams with these tips

The upcoming end-of-unit assessment (EoUA)/examination period isn’t too far away – it will run from Monday 3 to Friday 14 June 2024. Now’s the time to check your EoUA/exam timetable in StudentConnect to see when your assessments or exams are scheduled and confirm all your information is up to date.

You must follow our academic integrity policy in all EoUAs and exams. To feel confident and prepared, check out our Study support tools, services and resources. You will also find useful recordings and resources in CloudDeakin.

How special consideration works

Special consideration is intended to help you deal with short-term or unexpected setbacks like medical problems or other personal hardships. You’ll need to provide documentary evidence such as a medical certificate and/or statutory declaration – but conditions apply. 

Technology issues during your assessment aren’t grounds for special consideration where the full allotment of time (assessment duration plus reading and technical support time) has been provided – unless they cannot be resolved in the time available for you to complete the task.

If you experience any technology issues, contact the IT Service Desk on 1800 463 888 as soon as you can. Support is available 8am–8pm, Monday to Friday and 11am–5pm, Saturday to Sunday (AEST) during the entire EoUA/exam period – although wait times may be longer than normal. 

If your technical difficulties can’t be resolved during your assessment task, you must submit an IT Help support ticket and record your receipt number. You then have up to three working days after the due date of your EoUA or exam to apply for special consideration

Best of luck with your EoUAs/exams!
