ON LINE EXAMINATION POLICY
Candidates and Supervisors are expected to comply with all policies regarding the conduct of online examinations.
The candidate will undertake the examination without recourse to any aid (including but not limited to written notes, music scores, recordings, internet sites - other than exams.ameb.edu.au - and books) beyond those provided by the examination itself during the course of the examination.
The candidate will undertake the examination without recourse to any other person during the course of the examination.
EXAMINATION CONDUCT – SUPERVISOR PROTOCOL
The examination must be supervised by an adult 18 years of age or older (Supervisor) unless the candidate is an adult.
The Supervisor must sign an electronic declaration confirming they assume responsibility for supervising the candidate for the duration of the examination according to the terms of this Online Examination Policy.
The Supervisor must provide their name and a contact phone number when completing the electronic declaration.
The Supervisor must be present for the duration of the examination.
The Supervisor must take all reasonable steps to ensure that the candidate undertaking the examination is the same person who has completed the entry information for the examination.
The Supervisor must take all reasonable steps to ensure that the candidate complies with clauses 2 and 3 above.
The Supervisor must be prepared to receive a phone call from AMEB to confirm they supervised the examination, and whether any breach of this Online Examination Policy was observed.
The examination will be timed and will end when the candidate clicks on ‘send’ to submit the examination answers or when the time allowed expires.
If a candidate is unable to complete an examination for reasons of illness or external factors (eg power black out), the examination key will remain current and they will be able to resit the examination. In this circumstance the candidate will have to begin a new randomly-generated examination at a time of their choice.
In the event that a candidate breaches this Online Examination Policy, they will be subject to a review by AMEB the outcomes of which may include their result being rescinded and/or the candidate being banned from undertaking further examinations with AMEB.
Any candidate who believes that they have identified an error in a question or an ambiguity that prevents the question from being answered sufficient to prejudice the outcome of the examination for the candidate is encouraged to contact the Federal Office of the AMEB as soon as possible after the completion of the examination. The verified existence of such errors or ambiguities may constitute grounds for appeal.
Appeals are managed through the Online Examination Site. There is a fee for an appeal and this will be refunded if the appeal is upheld.
If you are not satisfied with the outcome of the appeal any further appeal needs to be made in writing and addressed to:
L8/21 Victoria St
Melbourne VIC 3000
Or by email to
The Federal Office will undertake a review of any question identified as containing a putative error or ambiguity.
In situations in which the Federal Office confirms the existence of an error or an ambiguity sufficient to prejudice the outcome of the examination for the candidate, the Federal Office will determine the course of action to be taken in regard to the question (which may include but is not limited to awarding full marks for the relevant question).
The finding of the Federal Office regarding questions affected in these ways is final and may not be further appealed.
