Fit to Sit model explained

Macquarie University operates under a ‘Fit to Sit’ model.

This means that, by sitting an examination and/or in-class test, or otherwise submitting an assessment, you are declaring you are fit to do so. It is your responsibility to determine whether you are well enough to sit an examination or test, or submit an assessment. Please be aware lenient marking is not permitted under any circumstances. If you are feeling unfit/unwell to sit the examination or test, or submit the assessment, you should not do so.

When applying for Special Consideration, you should keep eligibility requirements in mind. See our FAQs for further information on the impact of the Fit to Sit model on Special Consideration applications, including when you can and cannot seek Special Consideration.
