Exams and assessment

Exam dates are usually set early on, so students have time to study and organise their schedules around the exams.  The majority of end of semester examinations are held in the Sports Hall and are administered by the Student Business Centre.

Students should ensure that they do not make any travel plans during the end of semester examination period. If you are not available to sit a scheduled examination, you may receive a fail grade. Travel plans are not valid grounds for granting a deferred examination.

Bond University provides documents to help with Study Strategies and theory. Read more
