EXAMS: Special Consideration, Special Exams, Special Extension of Time; how they work; details
Over on our Facebook page we’ve had a bunch of questions from students asking about Specials etc, so here’s what they are and how they work:
- Special Consideration means that your circumstances can be taken into account when your examination is marked. This is worth a maximum of three (3) per cent of your final grade for the unit.
- A Special Examination is a deferred exam or a chance to resit the exam, usually in the following exam period.
- Special Extension of Time is where you have not been able to complete your assignments or other assessment items (other than formal exams) on time due to illness or other circumstances beyond your control, you may be eligible for an extension.
