Exam Support

Exam Support Stall

Everyone needs a bit of help come exam time, and the Exam Support Stall is designed to provide just that.

Since 2006, volunteers, student representatives and UMSU staff have provided information, advice, referral and support to students at a marquee at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton during the exam period (2-3 weeks in June and November).

Volunteers are trained to answer any questions exam goers may have and to offer advice and guidance to help students get through exam day. The stall also provides free exam essentials such as:

  • pens, correction tape, and tissues for those who had a brain fade and left the important stuff at home
  • Chupa Chups
  • advice on where to get help if needed

Look for us at the purple marquee!

What do I have to do?

As a volunteer, you can answer a range of questions, such as the location of facilities, and where to get help with special consideration and academic misconduct issues. You may need to refer students to Student Union and University services such as the Advocacy Service or the Health Service. You will distribute free exam supplies and work with other volunteers to set up and pack down the equipment.

Over the three weeks exam period in June and November, we ask that you volunteer for at least two shifts at times that suit you. Shifts are for two and a half hours. Times are as follows:

  • 8:00am – 10:30am
  • 10:15am – 12:45pm
  • 12:30pm – 3:00pm
  • 2:45pm – 5:00pm


You must be available to attend online training. Training will be held:

  • Semester 1: Thursday 1 June, 11:00AM - 11:30AM (Zoom)
