Students taking courses during the day may be required to write evening examinations, and students taking evening courses may be required to write day examinations.
A Faculty final examination common to all sections of the course and counting for between one-third and two-thirds of the final mark must be held in each 100-series course, unless exemption has been granted by the Committee on Academic Standards. In 200-, 300- and 400-series courses, the Departments will decide whether or not an examination is appropriate, and report to the Committee.
Final examinations are held at the end of both terms in each session. Students who make personal commitments during the examination period do so at their own risk. No special consideration is given and no special arrangements are made in the event of conflicts. Information regarding dates, times and locations of examinations will not be given by telephone.
Students who have two Faculty final examinations in the same time slot, or three consecutive Faculty final examinations (e.g., morning, afternoon, evening; or afternoon, evening, next morning) should contact the Office of the Faculty Registrar.
The ratio of term marks to examination mark will be the same for all sections of multi-section courses that have final examinations. The relative value of each part of a written examination must be indicated on the question paper.
Rules for the Conduct of Examinations
Outside Centre Special Accommodations FeeStudents who request permission to write an examination outside the normal examination arrangements must submit a petition making their request at least three weeks prior to the beginning of the examination period. Late requests cannot be accommodated. A non-refundable fee of $30.00 for each examination is charged at the time of application. Students who have been granted permission to write a deferred examination will pay this fee in addition to the deferred examination fee of $70.00 per examination.
For "Outside Centre" examinations, students are also responsible for all costs for invigilation, postage, etc. charged by the centres involved. These costs can reach as high as $100.00 per examination; students are advised to determine the total cost before petitioning. Such permission is granted only in the most extreme circumstances.
