Exams & results

Most final exams are now online

Moving forward, UOW will be holding the majority of end-of-semester exams online and remotely. A small number of exams with practical assessment components will be held on campus.

This decision aligns with the move to online exams that is taking place across the Australian university sector, on the back of the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, and ensures students can progress their studies safely.

The University’s Online Examination Procedure has been published and is available to view online. This procedure directs UOW staff and students on the process to be followed when conducting and undertaking end-of-session online examinations.

Online exam supervision

To invigilate (supervise) some of the online exams, UOW will use the online learning integrity tool Proctorio.

Students will receive more detailed information about their exams via SOLS - so please check this account regularly.
