How exams will run in First Half Year 2021
The type of exam you sit in Semester 1 will be determined by the mode of delivery for the subject:
- Online subjects: you will sit an online examination
- Dual-Delivery subjects: you will sit an online examination
- Campus based subjects: you may sit either an on-campus examination or an online examination.
You can find the delivery mode for your subjects in the subject listing of the Handbook which is the source of truth for your course and subject information.
Most of your exams in Semester 1 will be online.
