Exams are taken up by teachers and this is the only opportunity for students to see their exams.

Students will be briefed via email on exam regulations. The College expects all students to write examinations on campus at the scheduled time. Requests for exceptions must be submitted in writing to the Registrar, Heather Matthews, hmatthews@ucc.on.ca. Documentation will be required. If an exception is permitted, alternative exam arrangements may be subject to a fee and the student will be required to write during the designated make-up week prior to the start of school (Monday, August 26 to Friday, August 30), according to a schedule determined by the College.

If a student is absent for an examination due to illness, one of his parents must notify the main office at 416-488-1125, ext. 2219 on the morning of the exam. Notification must be made for each exam missed. Medical documentation acceptable to the College must be provided in such cases. Medical notes must clearly outline the reasons for the absence and the expected duration of the absence. In the case of boarders, the senior house adviser and/or the school nurse will provide appropriate documentation. All cases of absence — whether for compassionate, medical or exceptional reasons — will be reviewed by the Registrar in consultation with the Exam Deferral Exemption Committee (EDEC), who will determine the details of any required make-up exams.

If a student doesn’t write an exam for a reason approved by the College, he’ll receive an “N” on his report card in that subject. The “N” designates that there’s work yet to be completed in the course. After make-up exams have been graded, the student’s academic record will be updated at that time.

If a student is late for an examination, he should proceed as quickly as possible to the examination room and begin writing immediately. No extra time will be allotted for lateness. A student more than 15 minutes late for an examination must report to the main office.

Electronic devices:
No cell phones, SMART technology or other electronic devices (except calculators when required) are to be brought into the exam room. There are no exceptions. Students should leave such devices locked in their lockers. If students violate this rule and are found with a cell phone or other prohibited device during an exam, they’ll be subject to disciplinary action, including a zero on the exam in question.

Exam conflicts:
Although we’ve endeavoured to minimize exam conflicts, they’re unavoidable because of the limited exam times and the large number of courses offered. In any cases of conflict, students should directly contact the Registrar, Heather Matthews, hmatthews@ucc.on.ca and she’ll advise the student of conflict arrangements.
