Unit Coordinators have the discretion to arrange exam-based Deferred Supplementary Assessments outside the standard exam period and/or independent of the Office responsible for Exams. In the event that Unit Coordinators wish to offer an exam outside of the standard supplementary exam period, it is important that they also copy in the relevant exam contact(s) from the TNE partner institution when making a supplementary offer to the student so that the partner is aware that an exam needs to be arranged.
The letter of offer should mention that the Exams contact at the Partner institution will notify the student of the date, time and place of the exam (which will be negotiated between the Unit Coordinator and Exams contact from the Partner institution).

A student may be granted Deferred Assessment if illness or exceptional circumstances prevented them from completing an assessment and/or examination in sufficient time for a mark to be submitted to the relevant Board of Examiners meeting. Students registered under one or more of the approved Special Programs may also be eligible for Deferred Assessment subject to the provision of supporting documentation.
For more information, see Deferred Assessments.
The Exams and Assessment Office will draft, finalise and publish the timetable. The supplementary and deferred timetable will be published the same day results are released to students. After the Unit Coordinator submits the examination papers to the Exams and Assessment Office, the Office will arrange the printing of examination papers, and send (via courier) the examination papers and materials to be supplied by the University to the Transnational Partner.
The Transnational Partner will return the completed scripts of the supplementary and deferred examinations to the Exams and Assessment Office after the examination, and the Unit Coordinator will collect the scripts from the Office for marking, which usually takes place three to four working days after the scheduled day for the exam.
