I failed a prerequisite / had a paper deleted
If you fail to pass a paper/s (this includes those that have been granted a Special Exam*), after confirmed results have been released any paper/s in the following semester will be deleted if the failed paper/s was a prerequisite.
You will be advised via your student portal when a paper has been deleted.
This may affect your eligibility for a government student loan and/or student allowance (or if an international student, your immigration status). The total tuition fees payable will also normally be affected. If in any doubt regarding your eligibility for either a student loan or allowance contact StudyLink.

- International students should contact an International Student Adviser for advice
* If a Special Exam result for a prerequisite paper(s) is still to be confirmed, the paper/s which pertains to that prerequisite will be deleted. In this instance all enquiries should be directed to the Department concerned.
If a special exam result is received for a prerequisite paper confirming that it has been passed, the deleted paper related to that prerequisite will not be automatically reinstated. It is your responsibility to add any paper/s to your course of study.
