Exam Conflicts

Midterm exam conflicts

If you have two exams at the same time please complete an Academic Consideration Form  and attach send it through our help portal You will need to list both exams, including the day and times, and then check which exam you plan on moving. Course outlines may be required so have them handy. If only one exam has a make-up you will need to move that one, however, in-class midterms always take precedence. Meaning you can’t move the in-class midterm even though there may be no make-up in the other exam. Please find out from your instructor when your make-up exams are scheduled. If no exam has a make-up, you can decide (unless of course, one is an in-class – in-class takes priority of the other exam). If you need help on what to move just ask when you submit the forms.

Submit conflicts at least one week in advance.

Midterm 3 in 23 hours

The Faculty of Science will extend the University Exam Conflict Policy of 3 exams in 23 hours to midterm exams at our own discretion. Each case is reviewed separately and students must show how much the course component is worth when completing the paperwork. Each exam must be worth 15% or more to be considered. Course outlines may be required to prove the dates of the exams. If approved, we will allow you to move one of your midterm exams if you have three falling within 23 hours.

Please connect with our office and complete the Academic Consideration Form .

Final Exams

You will be notified by the registrar’s office if you are in a direct conflict, or have a multiple exam situation for your final exams. If you do, you can complete the necessary paperwork in Academic Advising to move an exam. This would create a special exam which would usually be written in January (for December exams) or May (for April exams).
