Examination periods and timetabling

Examination periods

The University of Otago has three examination periods each year.

The 2022 examination periods dates are as follows:

  • Summer School: 19–24 February 2022 (inclusive)
  • Semester 1: 8–22 June 2022 (inclusive)
  • Semester 2: 19 October–12 November 2022 (inclusive)

The 2023 examination periods dates are as follows:

  • Summer School: 18–23 February 2023 (inclusive)
  • Semester 1: 7–21 June 2023 (inclusive)
  • Semester 2: 18 October–11 November 2023 (inclusive)

Timetabling

Because of the flexibility of courses of study at Otago, examination timetabling cannot begin until after the last day to delete papers for that teaching period. Therefore, the anticipated dates for the release of examination timetable dates and times (published below) are:

  • Summer School: late January
  • Semester 1: mid–late April
  • Semester 2: mid–late August

Once the examination timetable has been finalised, each student's examination information will be displayed in the Timetable section of their eVision portal.

As per the University of Otago Examination and Assessment Regulations, candidates are expected to sit their final examinations as scheduled. The main examination centre is Dunedin. In the case of Extramural or Distance Learning candidates, the examination centre is a University-nominated examination venue near their normal study location.

Changes to final examination dates, times, or venues

These provisions have been temporarily updated in light of disruptions due to COVID-19.

Referred to as a Variation from the University's Examination and Assessment Regulations, changes to the date, time, and/or venue of a candidate’s examination(s) are granted only very rarely, only in exceptional circumstances clearly beyond the candidate’s control and known about in advance. Some established criteria are:

  • Bereavement in immediate family;
  • Wedding of a member of immediate family, or where the candidate has been invited to be a member of the bridal party;
  • Serious illness / incapacity (candidate or immediate family);
  • Posting of a member of the New Zealand Armed Forces or of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs;
  • Competing or participating as a national representative
  • Competing or officiating at an international competition recognised by a fully constituted international governing body
  • Trialling, as a genuine contender, for selection as a national representative, as verified by a fully constituted national governing body
  • A candidate’s religious commitment prohibiting such activity on the date scheduled.

These provisions may allow a candidate to sit a digital examination at an alternative time where the candidate is overseas and in a significantly different time zone.

If you are travelling out of Dunedin at the end of the semester, ensure that you make your bookings for a date after the examination period, or wait until the examination timetable has been released.

Note: Booking flights too early, or before your timetable is known, are not grounds for applying for a variation.

How to apply

If your circumstances fall into one of these categories, please email the Group Leader Student Administration at examinations@otago.ac.nz by the deadlines below, outlining your situation, and attach documentation to verify the circumstances that prevent you from sitting your examination(s) as scheduled.

Deadlines

Applications for variations must be received by:

  • Summer School papers - 1 February
  • Semester 1 papers - 1 May
  • Semester 2 and full year papers - 1 September

Variations cannot be considered at short notice.

Please note that if your application for a variation is approved, you will be responsible for any venue, supervision, and postage/ courier costs incurred as a result of the change in time, date, and/or venue.

If you have queries or concerns about examinations, please email the examinations team, examinations@otago.ac.nz.
