Exams for students studying remotely

Your exam timetable

Update: 16 October 2020

All exam timetables have now been updated in Student Services Online. The deadline for submitting a correction to your time or location has been extended to 22 October 2020.

Please follow these instructions on how to view your timetable. The timetable is published in New Zealand Time (NZDT). 

We have done our best to schedule your exams between 7.45am and 8pm in your local time zone. This means that your exam might be scheduled at a time that is different from the rest of your class. 

The following approach was taken to scheduling exams for students who are studying offshore.
