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.

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.

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.
