Section 4: University 1 Regulations
4.5 Missed Examinations
University 1 students who miss a final examination for medical or compassionate reasons may be granted a deferred examination. Travel plans are not an acceptable reason to miss examinations. The University 1 Student Help Centre is the only place that can arrange a deferred examination for University 1 students who miss an exam scheduled by the Registrar’s Office. To make this arrangement, University 1 students must report to the Student Help Centre, normally no later than seven working days after the end of the examination series in which the examination was scheduled to be written, and provide written proof (such as a medical certificate) supporting the reason for missing an examination. The dates of the illness or affliction must correspond to the dates of the examination. If the request for a deferred examination is approved, the student will, in most cases, be offered the opportunity to write another examination within 30 working days from the end of the examination series from which the examination was deferred. More information about this may be found in Section 4.2.5 in the General Academic Regulations and Requirements chapter in this Calendar.
If a University 1 student misses a mid-term examination or a final examination, not scheduled by the Registrar’s Office, for personal or medical reasons, the student must report to the instructor as soon as possible and provide written proof supporting the absence. Missing an examination is serious. There are many ways that the instructor can accommodate the student, and these options are up to the instructor and the department. Writing a makeup test at the student’s convenience may not be an option.
