York Attending Physician's Statement, certified by an MD licensed by the Ontario College of Physicians,
for illness - no other documentation will be accepted. The make-up test will be scheduled one or two weeks

A student who misses a Term Test will be allowed to write a make-up test only if the student provides a completed
Registrar’s Office Attending Physician’s Statement showing a physical incapability of writing the test.
Any other forms of doctor’s note, especially one stating simply that “The student was seen in my office”, or notes
from non-medical doctors such a Physiotherapist or herbalists, etc. are not acceptable. Students who miss a test
and do not provide acceptable documentation receive a grade of zero.
There is only one comprehensive make-up test each term, covering the material in both Tests 1 and Test 2. You
