The Examinations Section provides centralised services and support to ensure consistent and high-quality conduct of examinations across all campuses of the University, as well the efficient utilisation of resources.

The Examinations Section has the following primary functions: 

  • Exam scheduling and supervision across all UQ campuses.
  • Exam paper management for central exams, including printing, distribution to venues, and prompt delivery to Schools for marking.
  • Recruitment and training of casual examination supervisors.
  • Facilitating alternative exam arrangements for students who, for a variety of reasons, are unable to sit their exams with the main cohort.
  • Facilitating arrangements for UQ students to sit exams off-campus where applicable.
  • Arranging venues and supervision for exams held by other institutions on our campus.
  • Providing a central port of call for enquiries from students and staff about examinations matters.

Opening hours and location

Our office is located on level 2 of the JD Story Building, at the St Lucia Campus.  Phone or email enquiries about examinations at all campuses can be directed to the General Enquiries number and address listed below. 

We do not deal face to face with students at our office; all face to face student enquiries should be directed to the Student Centre.  Students are encouraged in the first instance to find the information they require on myUQ, or they may contact us using the General Enquiries number or email address (below).

Staff members are welcome to raise matters in person between the hours of 9.00am and 5.00pm Monday to Friday.  The office is open for extended hours during the end of semester examination periods, covering the start of the first and the end of the last exams on each day, including Saturdays.
