Exam Schedule – Procedures

1.   It is the student’s responsibility to check the schedule for the date, time and room number of their courses’ exams.

2.   All questions concerning exam schedules should be directed to Ms. Crozier.

3.   Any exam conflicts are to be reported to Ms. Crozier in Student Services immediately.

A conflict is when a student is scheduled to write two or more exams at the same time.  If this occurs, the student must see Ms. Crozier to reschedule the conflicting exam.  When a student has an exam conflict, one exam is written during the scheduled time and Ms. Crozier will determine which exam will be written in the next available exam time.

Be sure to check with teachers to confirm other final assessments and deadlines in all courses.
