Centrally Conducted Exams
Centrally-conducted exams (also known as formal exams) are scheduled and conducted by the University. Students can access their individual exam timetable through myStudentAdmin. As per UTS Rule 9.1.2, information concerning examination timetables for centrally conducted examinations will not be provided by University staff to students. Students must access the student system account to obtain their centrally conducted examination timetable, room allocation and seat number.
Scheduling Difficulties: Rescheduled Exams
Students who have 3 centrally-conducted (formal) exams scheduled by the formal exam timetable within any 24 hour period, or any student who has a schedule conflict and is unable to attend the exam, must lodge an "advice for scheduling difficulties for centrally conducted examinations" form in order to request a Rescheduled exam.
Students need to refer to the UTS:Student Admin webpage for the designated submission deadline for application. Complete submission requirements and rules, including the form needed to apply can be found here. Completed applications must be lodged to the Law Student Centre by the designated submission deadline.

A completed application must be submitted at least 10 working days prior to your scheduled exam. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
