Important Note about Exam Bookings

When booking a test or exam, students are required to book to start writing at the same time and on the same date as the class.  If you require an alternate date or time as an accommodation, you must provide written confirmation that the instructor has approved the alternate scheduling to the Exam Centre.  This must be provided before the booking deadline, which is 7 days before the test or exam, and not later than the 40th Class Day (March 8, 2019).
