If your application for special consideration is successful, you may be granted a deferred exam or alternative assessment task.
A deferred exam is an exam postponed to a later date. These are held during the official deferred exam period, unless your faculty emails your Monash account with an alternative time, giving five University working days’ notice.
If you are granted a deferred exam, your unit grade will be DEF (deferred exam) in the Web Enrolment System (WES). It is your responsibility to be available to sit a deferred exam at the scheduled time.
For details on eligibility and how to apply, see special consideration.
Until you complete your deferred exam or supplementary exam/assessment, you will have an incomplete result. An incomplete result does not satisfy unit prerequisites. This could prevent you from enrolling in some units. Please check your enrolment carefully and consult your faculty.
Once you complete a deferred exam or final assessment, the result of that assessment will be final.

If you've been granted a deferred final exam or assessment, but you're unable to sit the exam or complete the assessment task, in some cases you can apply for a rescheduling. This can be due to:
Your managing faculty will arrange a meeting with you to consider your application. You can take a support person to that meeting. The rescheduled exam or assessment task must occur within 12 months.
If you can't sit your deferred final assessment, due to extreme circumstances beyond your control, you can apply for a WI (withdrawn incomplete) grade. WI is not a passing grade (due to incomplete unit requirements) but unlike other fail grades, a WI will not be included on your Grade Point Average (GPA) or Weighted Average Mark (WAM).
