You can apply for special consideration when illness or other circumstances beyond your control, interfere
with your assessment performance (to apply see Special Consideration on the UNSW Current Students
page). Special Consideration is primarily intended to provide you with an extra opportunity to demonstrate
the level of performance of which you are capable.
Special Consideration applications will be assessed centrally by the Case Review Team within Student
Lifecycle. The Case Review team will update the online application with the outcome and add any relevant
Please note the following:
• Applications can only be made through Online Services in myUNSW. Applications will not be accepted
by teaching staff. The lecturer-in-charge/course coordinator will be automatically notified when you
lodge an online application for special consideration.
• Applying for special consideration does not automatically mean that you will be granted a
supplementary exam or other concession.
• If you experience illness or misadventure in the lead up to an exam or assessment, you must submit an
application for special consideration, either prior to the examination taking place, or prior to the
assessment submission deadline , except where illness or misadventure prevent you from doing so.
• If you sit the exam/submit an assignment, you are declaring yourself well enough to do so and are
unable to subsequently apply for special consideration.
• If you become unwell on the day of the exam, you must provide evidence dated within 24 hours of the
exam, with your application.
• The current provisions will continue for exceptional circumstances, for example, if a student falls sick
during an exam. Other exceptions will continue to be examined on a case by case basis by the Student
• Special consideration requests do not allow the awarding of additional marks to students.
Further information on Business School policy and procedure, as well as supplementary exam dates for
the current term, can be found under “Special Consideration” on the Policies and Support page.
The School of Banking and Finance supports the concept to leave the course lecturer-in-charge
to stipulate a penalty of 0 to 10% of the percentage weight of the assessment component or part
thereof per day. Details of such penalties will be available on the course Moodle page.
Applications for extension are restricted to cases of serious illness, bereavement or
misadventure and students must provide documentary evidence. Decisions on such applications
will be based on policies that are consistent with the policies adopted by UNSW Business School
for such cases.
Protocol for Viewing Final Exam Scripts
The UNSW Business School has set a protocol under which students may view their final exam
script. Individual schools within the Faculty may also set up a local process for viewing final
exam scripts, so it is important that you check with your School. Further school specific
information may be included below.
Further to the Business School protocol for viewing final exam scripts:
A student must lodge a request to view his or her final exam script within 5 working days immediately
following the official release of overall course results. This request must be emailed to the School of
Banking and Finance at Email.
The School may fix a time at which all students wishing to see their exams will be permitted to do so.
The date for viewing all final exam scripts with the School of Banking and Finance is the 10th working
day after the official release of overall course results, and the School may fix a time for each course on
that day. The School may refuse to allow access to the exams at other times.
Protocol for Viewing Other Exam Scripts is the similar to that of viewing final exam scripts except
the working days are defined with reference to the release date of specific assessment result.
The Business School is actively monitoring student learning and quality of the student experience in all its programs. A random selection of completed assessment tasks may be used for quality assurance, such as to determine the extent to which program learning goals are being achieved. The information is required for accreditation purposes, and aggregated findings will be used to inform changes aimed at improving the quality of Business School programs. All material used for such processes will be treated as confidential.
