The deferred final exam (if eligible) is at the beginning of the next term. There are no
alternative arrangements for the deferred final exam.
No books, notes or dictionary are allowed in the exam. Calculators are permitted provided
they are silent calculators with single-line or two-line display. Programmable, graphing or
business calculators, and cell phones are not allowed. If your calculator does not meet the
above standards, you will not be allowed to use it and a substitute calculator will not be
For the exams, you will be provided with an exam booklet, an answer booklet for the
problem solving and short-answer questions, and a bubble sheet for the multiple-choice
questions. You can write on the exam booklet, but only the answer sheet/booklet will be
marked. Failure to hand in all the examination materials before you leave the room will
invalidate your exam without the possibility of a make-up exam.
Note that the final exam is on 13 April 2019, 7-10pm. If you have an exam ‘congestion’
(e.g. 3 exams in a 24-hour period), you should register for the BUS254 D200 class instead.
12. ABSENCE IN EXAMINATIONS
Every student is expected to participate in work assigned during the semester. The marks
obtained for work during the semester will be used in determining the final standing for the
course. A passing grade in any examination does not ensure a passing grade for the course.
Students who miss examinations because of illness or for compassionate reasons are required
to obtain a physician's certificate or other supporting documents in order to obtain
consideration in the course. You are required to see a physician on the day(s) that you are
ill. You must provide the University’s medical form to the medical practitioner. The
completed medical form must be filed with the instructor within FOUR DAYS of the date on
which the examination was to have been written. The form can be obtained here:
ABSENCE FROM MID-TERM EXAM: The final decision as to whether a modification of
course requirements should be granted rests with the instructor, REGARDLESS of what
may be stated on any medical note. The severity of the illness reported by the physician will
be taken into consideration when making this decision. If a modification is granted by the
instructor, you will be allowed to change the weight of your final exam to make up for the
missed mark on the midterm exam.
ABSENCE FROM FINAL EXAM: If you miss the final exam with approved reasons, a DE
notation will be given and you must write a make-up final exam before the fifth day of
classes in the semester immediately following the one in which the notation was awarded.
The deferred exam will be held during the deferred exam week, which is normally at the
beginning of the next semester. There will not be an earlier deferred exam.
