Overseas examinations start times

Overseas examination centres can and do vary these times in order to fit in with their own institutional requirements, or to accommodate needs specific to the centre or to the country.

A few weeks before your examination you will receive a Final Notification of Examination Centre along with full address and contact details for your examination centre. Exam starting times may be included. Unless instructed otherwise, you should contact the exam centre to confirm your intention to attend the exam/s and to check your exam dates and times.

For further queries on this, overseas students should email exams@massey.ac.nz.
