Examinations

Schedule
The current examination schedule is posted on the Faculty of Arts and Science site.

Instructors are not authorized to re-schedule or excuse students from final faculty examinations.  Students who are unable to write their examinations due to illness, domestic affliction, etc., must petition for a deferred examination. 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. 

Reread of Final Examination
If a student believes that a final faculty examination has been incorrectly marked in its substance, he/she may request a “reread.” Students should consult the Faculty of Arts and Science Calendar website for detailed procedures. The student must demonstrate that his/her answers are substantially correct by citing specific instances of disagreement, supported by such documentary evidence as course handouts, textbooks, lecture notes, etc. The student must do more than simply assert that “I disagree with the marking,” or that “I believe I deserve more marks.” The Department concerned will reread the examination in light of the arguments presented. There is a $35.00 fee for this procedure, which is in addition to the fee of $13.00 charged for the photocopy of the final examination. The fee must be submitted, with the completed form, to the Office of the Faculty Registrar within six months of the final examination period. If the mark is changed as a result of this review both the photocopy and reread fees will be refunded. It should be noted that when a course is failed, the examination must be reread before the mark is reported.

Quick Facts

  • Tips to help you avoid carelessly committing an academic offence during your exams:
  • Listen to and follow all instructions! Keep your eyes and thoughts to yourself! You may only be looking around to clear your head or mumbling to yourself, but invigilators don't know that!
  • Leave all unauthorized aids in your bag/at home! Possession of an unauthorized aid is an offence! If you're not sure what's authorized, ask! Aids include notes or any kind of personal electronic device.
  • A cellphone is an unauthorized aid! That means if you've got it on your desk, in your pocket, or anywhere near you, you are committing an offence!
  • "Stop writing" means stop writing! When the exam is over, put your pen/pencil down! If you keep writing, you are committing an academic offence!
