How can I check my exam marks at TAFE Queensland Southwest?
Academic progression details can be viewed on studentConnect. If you’ve made satisfactory progress, you’ll be assigned the status of “Good Standing” and will be permitted to re-enrol. If you’ve failed to make satisfactory progress, you may be placed on probation, suspended or excluded.
These key dates include exams and test days
The TAFE Queensland Southwest’s key dates for 2023 include exams and test days. As they prepare for their tertiary education, some students begin to feel pressure around this time of year. It is important to remember that these are just exams and test days and not set-in-stone rules. Each individual student’s university journey will be unique and special in its own way. Just like every other year, we encourage all prospective students to use these key dates as a guide, but ultimately make decisions that work best for them and their situation!
TAFE Queensland Southwest Alternative arrangements
It’s your responsibility to ensure you can make your scheduled exams on time. In some circumstances, alternative examination arrangements can be made.

If two of your exams are scheduled for the same time, your personal timetable on studentConnect will state ‘CLASH’ and it will list the alternate session you’ve been assigned to, so you don’t need to do anything. You’ll need to sign a Student Declaration form stating that you haven’t seen the exam paper before and you haven’t spoken to anyone who has already sat the exam.
Sitting exams overseas
All exams will be online or an alternative assessment, therefore accessible anywhere in the world. If you are sitting a timetabled exam and you are negatively impacted by timezone differences, you can apply to sit the exam during the next appropriate daylight time. You can apply for a variation through school portal and indicate the timezone you are currently in, and the Exams team will confirm an amended sitting with you. Note, this will reflect the next available reasonable time for your timezone (i.e. 9am). You’ll need to sign a Student Declaration form stating that you haven’t seen the exam paper before and you haven’t spoken to anyone who has already sat the exam.
Disability or medical condition
If you have a disability or medical condition that means you are unable to complete exams under regular conditions, alternative arrangements can be made. Examples include alternative venues, extra time or use of a computer. The adjustment must be clearly related to the functional impact of your disability or medical condition in exam conditions. Make an appointment to discuss your requirements with a disability officer at UniAccess.
If you suffer an illness or disability before exams begin (for example, you injure your writing arm), contact UniAccess to see if special arrangements can be made for you.
If you cannot attend an exam due to your religious beliefs, alternative exam arrangements may be made by submitting a special consideration request to your Student Advising Office within five university working days after the publication of the final examination timetable on studentConnect. This includes presenting a letter from your religious leader, indicating you are a member of the congregation and will be unable to attend the scheduled exam.
Alternative exam arrangements may be made for you by submitting a special consideration request to your Student Advising Office at least four weeks prior to the exam period; unless it is a deferred exam where applications must be received within three university working days after the publication of the timetable. You can sit the exam at the scheduled time away from the University or you may require a deferred exam.
Deferred or supplementary exams
If you’re sitting a deferred or supplementary exam, you are still required to read the information relating to main exams to ensure you’re fully prepared.
