Well the end to a pretty different Semester 1 looms in front of you. While times have been pretty whacky lately this upcoming assessment period – aka Exam Period – is nearly upon you.
From our perspective all we can advise you is to follow the instructions you’ve been given and do your best to ride the ride.
Next Monday starts the Semester 1 Alternative Assessment Period and goes all the way through to 21 June 2020.
Are you prepared for your alternate assessment? If you really are unsure check out the information USQ has provided in your Alternate Assessment Schedule in your Student Centre
If you are unable to complete your assessment due to being unwell or other extenuating circumstances, such as family members falling ill or even if your work schedule impacts ,you have the right to apply for a deferred assessment.
You will have to complete an online application for deferred examination and supply supporting information.
This information must explain what has occurred and include the assessment dates and how you are impacted by the circumstances so much you cannot attend nor participate.
Just as a heads up… forgetting about the alternative assessment won’t be acceptable grounds which USQ would accept any attempt to gain a deferred assessment… stay in the game folks!
Now, if you do choose to still complete your assessments you are not eligible to apply for Special Consideration nor can you apply for a deferred assessment if you begin the assessment.
Be very sure you are not able to complete before you start. If you’d like to talk through your options of course you can contact us for more support, guidance and help.
Like any other exam period, this Semester 1 alternative assessment process is going to have a huge impact on your end of year experiences and final grades. Use the time as wisely as you can.
If you’re not sure what you can have with you during the alternative assessment we urge you to check the 2020 USQ Course specifications to find exactly what is and is not permitted.
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.
