2019 end-of-year exams

Exam room allocations

Room allocations for the 2019 end-of-year exams are now available on the examinations dates and timetables webpage.

Exams will start at 9.30am, 2.30pm and 6.30pm.  The evening session consists of exams that have a maximum duration of two hours.

Please double-check that you have written down the right course codes, days and times of your examinations.  You should report to the exam room no later than 10 minutes prior to the official start time.  Students may enter an examination room 45 minutes after the start of the examination.

No alternative sitting will be available if you miss your exam or arrive after 10.15am (for a morning exam), 3.15pm (for an afternoon exam) or 7.15pm (for an evening session).  An exception to this is if you have valid grounds as covered under the regulations for Special Consideration.

Please also take the time before your exams to familiarise yourself with the UC examination instructions. Of particular note are the regulations regarding cell phones and watches in exams, and the UC Calculator policy for the identification of standard non-programmable calculators in exams. Exams which require an “approved” sticker are indicated in these instructions.

If you have any queries, please feel free to contact the Examinations team. 

Academic Skills Centre support

For assistance with revision and exam preparation, stress management and other academic matters, check out the courses running at the Academic Skills Centre this term.

End-of-year examination results

The 2019 final grades will be available online from 7.00pm on Friday, 29 November.

Students can access their results by logging into the myUC and selecting the link “Internal Transcript & Results”. This is a period of high activity for myUC, so you may experience a slower than usual performance. If a final grade does not appear on your transcript, please contact the department concerned during normal business hours (9am-5pm).

Some postgraduate and College of Education courses run to a different schedule, so any remaining results will be released as soon as they are available.

If you need further information about results and appeals you can find more on the Results and Appeals webpage.

Your responsibility – Student Code of Conduct

UC is a community of people committed to creating a campus culture of belonging, understanding, inclusiveness and caring. Harassment and bullying of any kind, whether on or off campus or online, is unacceptable.

Harassment and bullying can take different forms, including oral, written, physical, online or other non-verbal forms.

When you enrolled at UC you signed up to the Student Code of Conduct which outlines regulations and policies you are required to comply with while studying at UC.

We all have a responsibility to promote and maintain a respectful and inclusive culture and ensure our behaviour is not offensive or harmful to others. It is your responsibility to ensure you are familiar with the Code of Conduct and understand the consequences of not complying. Read the Student Code of Conduct.

Raise a concern

You can voice a concern, complaint, grievance, or appeal a decision, without fear of disadvantage. Your discussions will be confidential and no action will be taken without your consent. See more information about raising a concern.

You can anonymously report any form of harassment or bullying at UC using Report It. Complaints are kept on file and used to build a picture of the culture on campus and to inform initiatives.

Support services on campus

Please take care of yourself and your friends as we near the end of semester. Support services will be available during the exam period if you would like support or someone to talk to. Read about support at UC.

Student Services Levy 2020

The Student Services Levy (SSL) is a fee New Zealand tertiary institutions charge to help fund the cost of delivering support services and facilities for students, which are not covered by tuition fees. 

From 1 January 2020, the way the SSL is calculated will change to a points-based system. This means the SSL you pay will be based on the number of points you study in an academic year.  The points system is simpler and more transparent for everyone. Watch the video below and find out more here
