Mid-year and end-of-year examinations

Special arrangements for exams held during the formal exam periods are automatically arranged for you by the Records, Examinations and Graduations office.

Please be aware that there are specific cut off dates to apply for exam special arrangements please click here for up to date information.

They will send an email to your overall preferred email address two weeks prior to the exam period with details of your exams, including venues, times and contact people during the exam period.

If, after receiving the email, you don’t intend, or are unable to sit your exam, you must contact the Examination Special Arrangements Coordinator, melanie.clinton@canterbury.ac.nz, by midday, one working day before the exam. Failure to do this will result in a fine of $60.00 per exam for each of the Supervisor and/or Reader/Writer (should you have one), per exam, towards the cost of setting up your accommodations.

Please note, exams with special arrangements begin 30 minutes prior to the main cohort i.e.: 9.00am and 2.00pm.
