EC140 Winter 2019 Syllabus Page 3
The mid-term examinations, each consisting of 40 multiple-choice questions, will be
written on February 7 and March 14. In the event that a student is unable to write on the
scheduled date because of illness, where such incapacity is verified by a medical
certificate, the 20% of total course grade from the missed mid-term will be re-assigned to
the final examination
Due to the difficulty of scheduling additional rooms and proctors (and as a matter of
LSBE policy), there are no deferred midterms.
The final examination for the course, consisting of 50 multiple-choice questions, will be
written during a 2½ hour period, the date, time, and location of which is determined by
the Examinations Office.
Students registered in undergraduate courses offered by the Lazaridis School of Business
& Economics (Lazaridis School), who feel they are unable to write a final examination(s)
as scheduled, must submit a “slip day” request form and a petition to the Undergraduate
Business Programs Office (LH2058). Supporting documentation will be required and
If a student’s slip day request is approved, both the student and the instructor will receive
a confirmation email and the student will write on the predetermined slip day. If the slip
day request is not approved, the petition will be forwarded to the Lazaridis School
Petitions Committee for further evaluation.
If the Lazaridis School Petitions Committee approves deferral of a final examination, the
student and instructor will receive written confirmation via email. If approval is not
received, the student must write the examination as scheduled.
The undergraduate calendar clearly specifies dates for each exam period throughout the
academic year, and it remains the student’s responsibility to be available during the
entire exam period. The Lazaridis School Petitions Committee does not look favourably
upon petitions to defer final exams due to vacation plans.
Brantford BTM students may provide petitions to an Academic Advisor in RCE132.
