December 2018 Examination Schedule Year 10, Year 11 and Year 12

Dates, Times and Locations:
Year 12 examinations will be written between Friday, December 7 and Wednesday, December 19 in the Old Gym.

Year 10 and Year 11 examinations will be written between Thursday, December 13 and Wednesday, December 19 in the Hewitt Athletic Centre (Lett Gym). The exam schedule is in the download above. It will be posted throughout the hallways of the Upper School and has been emailed to students. Morning exams begin at 9:00 a.m. Afternoon exams begin at 1:00 p.m.

Students will be briefed 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 Heather Matthews, Registrar of the Upper School, hmatthews@ucc.on.ca. Each case will be considered individually and where applicable, medical documentation will be required. Please note that 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 from Monday, January 7 to Friday, January 11, 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, who will determine the details of any required make-up exams.

Students must observe the regular dress code during the December examination period, as described in the Upper School Family Handbook. We’ll convey these expectations directly to the boys.

If a student is late for an examination, he should proceed as quickly as possible to the examination room (in proper school dress) 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 Student Centre Office.

Electronic Devices and Backpacks
No backpacks, cell phones or other electronic devices (except calculators when required) are to be brought into the exam room. There are no exceptions. Students should leave their backpacks and other devices locked in their lockers. If students violate this rule and are caught with a cell phone or other prohibited device during an exam, regardless of whether they are using it, he will 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. Students should review the exam schedule immediately and in any cases of exam conflict (two exams scheduled at the same time), should get in touch with the Registrar’s Office, hmatthews@ucc.on.ca, as soon as possible.
