New information following the change in COVID-19 alert levels.


The COVID-19 pandemic has meant changes to how exams and assessments work. For the latest information and FAQs go to COVID-19 coronavirus - information for the Massey University community.

Paper-based examinations will not take place in Semester 1. They will be replaced by 'Time Constrained Assessments' and 'Online Supervised Examinations'. Your personalised timetable in your portal will show the type of exam you will have.

  • Time Constrained Assessments and Assignments are exam-like but unsupervised assessments that you complete on Stream, and for which you have a time limit once you start.

  • Online Supervised Exams are supervised exams that you access through Stream, starting at a set time and completing within a time limit. In general, only courses that have exams worth more than 60% of the overall grade will have Online Supervised Exams. The exception to this are courses where student’s assessments are required for professional and external accreditation purposes.

Some exams cannot be accommodated by these arrangements (eg some aviation courses accredited by the CAA). In these cases, the exams will be deferred until the end of Semester 2. If this applies to you, you will be able to continue with your Semester 2 courses without having completed your courses in Semester 1. 

To ensure you can attend your scheduled exam make sure you keep the exam period (weeks) free until your timetable is available. The exam period for Semester 1 is 22-26 June. For Massey Business School students, Time Constrained Assessments will be held from 15-19 June.
