It’s that time! With the end of term right around the corner, here are some helpful resources and reminders to finish the semester -and the year!-with success.

General Exam Information
- Repeated or additional assignments and exams are not given in the Schulich School of Business to provide the student with a chance of improving the course grade.
- Examination booklets/answer sheets become the property of the University and are retained for the full Fall or Winter term immediately following the term in question.
- No examinations or tests (in-class or take-home) collectively worth more than 20% of the course grade are permitted during the final 14 calendar days of classes in any Schulich course. Excepted are courses that run on weekends, courses in compressed terms, and courses with 6.00 or more contact hours per week. An assignment is not considered a take-home examination if students have at least two weeks to complete it.
- If cheating is identified, the matter will be documented (written up) by the invigilator or instructor and forwarded immediately to the Associate Dean, Academic for action.
An exam conflict is categorized as:
- two exams at the same time; or
- three exams in the same day; or
- three exams in three consecutive periods within 24 hours.
To avoid conflicts students are encouraged to consult the exam timetable on the Schulich website before enrolling in classes. If students are faced with an exam conflict they are asked to discuss the matter with the instructors of the conflicting courses. They may approach the Office of the Associate Dean, Academic (Room N230) for help with making alternate arrangements based on their exam schedules.
