Supplementary exams are managed by the UNSW Exams team, except for AGSM, ADFA, Art & Design and the School of Optometry. Please contact these schools directly for further information.
A supplementary exam may be awarded to students where:
Students must complete a special consideration application with supporting documentation via the Special Consideration portal.
In all cases, the form of the supplementary assessment need not be identical to the original assessment, but it must assess the same learning outcomes.
Students will be notified of their eligibility for a supplementary exam via UNSW student email only.
Note: The supplementary exam timetable can only be finalised once all special consideration applications have been assessed.
For Term 2 2021, students will be notified if their supplementary exam has been approved no later than Friday 3rd September.
