I'm missing an exam on my timetable
If an exam does not appear in your personalised exam timetable at https://exams.westernsydney.edu.au/timetable/personal.php (opens in a new window) it could mean that you either have an exam clash or the exam is being run by the School.
You should contact the Assessment and Timetabling Team as soon as possible at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org or call 02 4736 0600 for further information.
I've got an exam clash
The University defines an exam clash as:
- two exams at the same time including any overlap
- less than one and a half hours between exams
- where you have more than three exams scheduled on two consecutive days. The University does not regard Friday or Saturday and the following Monday as consecutive days
- An evening exam that finishes after 8.30pm followed by a morning exam that starts before 9.30am on the next consecutive day
You must advise the Assessment and Timetabling Team of an exam clash no later than five working days after the date the exam timetable is published. You need to send an email (from your student email account) to the Assessment and Timetabling Team mailto:email@example.com
We will provide exam clash information to you via your student email account and your new exam arrangements will be outlined in the email advice.Related links
