Examination Timetable Release Dates

This page provides you with the exam timetable dates plus useful information about exam sessions, scheduling and exam clashes

If you are due to sit an exam, you are responsible for reading your timetable in MyAdelaide carefully and checking it on a regular basis. Misreading the exam timetable and failing to attend will not constitute sufficient grounds to apply for a replacement exam.

**Please note that Replacement & Additional Assessment (R/AA) exam timetables are visible within your MyAdelaide account once it's approved and processed by your Faculty.  If you have received confirmation from your Faculty that your R/AA application has been approved but your timetable is not appearing, please contact your Faculty/School directly for assistance.

Staff can access the timetable under the Information For Staff - Current Year Timetable.

  • Examination sessions

    Exams will be scheduled either in the morning or afternoon. Make sure that you arrive on time:

    • Morning session starts at 9:00am
    • Afternoon session starts at 1:00pm
  • Examination scheduling

    Primary exams are scheduled over a two-week period with two sessions per day. For maximum efficiency and equity, exam scheduling software is used to set the timetable.

    Where possible exams are scheduled to ensure the minimum number of students have two exams in one day. Students can select from a wide range of courses, so it is not possible to schedule exams to ensure that all students do not have exams on consecutive days.

  • Clashing examinations

    If your timetable requires you to sit two or more of your exams at the same time, or you have one exam on-campus and one off-campus on the same day, you may be eligible for extenuating circumstances arrangements.

    You must complete the application form for assessment task extension or replacement examination due to extenuating circumstances and email it to examinations@adelaide.edu.au within two weeks of the timetable being published. Applications made outside of this period may not be considered.

    Students will:

    • receive confirmation of their arrangements via their student email
    • be required to sit both exams on the same day where possible
    • be permitted to revise between exams

    Any student from Roseworthy or Waite campus with clashing exams should complete the above application form and lodge it to their faculty office without delay.
