Additional Assessment

If the policies of the School of Mathematics and Statistics in any way conflict with any University policy, then the University policy applies.

The University has a policy on special consideration and provides a guide to UNSW grades.

Details of all applications for special consideration are kept on the student's record at the School of Mathematics and Statistics. Students should acquaint themselves with the School's rules for special consideration.  

The School of Mathematics and Statistics only grants Additional Assessment Examinations in a few circumstances, which are:

1. The student misses the final exam through illness or misadventure.

In this case the student must apply for special consideration following UNSW rules. Students must apply for Special Consideration via MyUNSW. The decision will be made by Student Central and you will be notified by them.

2. The student is affected by serious illness or misadventure in the period leading up to the final examination or at the final examination in such a way that their performance at that exam is seriously affected and this is fully documented.

The procedures to be followed by the student, the policy for accepting the application for special consideration and the outcome in terms of Additional Assessment are the same as for 1 above.

If the student's application for special consideration is accepted then the student will be given a grade of WC as their official mark and grade. This will show on the School website and official University results. In addition, the School website may show the actual mark already achieved. 

Taking Supplementary Exams

Students will be notified by Student Central and Exams Bracnch of when the Supplemetary Exam will be held. The Supplemetary Exam Period dates can be found  here. It is your responsibility that you are aware of these dates and that you are available to attend should you submit a Special Consideration for the Final Exam.

The Exams Branch l will contact each eligible student directly by email giving the time and location for all their Supplementary exams.

Supplementary  Exams should not be expected to be easier than Final Exams and may be a different form of examination.
