Student Guide to Accommodated Exams

Use this guide as a reference for all your accommodated exam-related needs.

FINAL EXAMS: Watch this video or read the information below!

Is your video blurry? When you have the video playing, click on the gear picture (icon) on the black bar at the bottom of the video. This opens video settings. Click on 'quality' and choose a higher number, such as 720. 

How to use this guide

Use this guide to book your exams with Accommodated Exams at Testing Services.

Each tab on the left side of the page provides you with information on different topics. Each section is important for you to read and understand. If you prefer to watch a video instead of reading, there is a video posted at the top of each section as well. 

Please note: for the purposes of this guide, the word "EXAMS" means any kind of test, quiz, or exam. E.g. unit tests, midterm exams, and quizzes.

Please note: if your ONLY exam accommodation is 1.5 extra time, please do NOT book with Accommodated Exams. Because all students at NorQuest receive extra time (1.5x) to write their exams, you will write in-class/online with your classmates.

If you have any questions or need help, feel free to contact us!

Announcements and important reminders

  • We strongly recommend for you to book your exams as soon as you know the exam dates from your instructor. The earlier you book, the more likely you will get the time and date that you prefer!

Business days are Monday to Friday, which do not include weekends and statutory holidays. Here are some examples, below.
    • You need to write your midterm exam on Monday. At the very latest, you must book your appointment by Monday of the week before.
    • You need to write your unit 1 test on Wednesday. At the very latest, you must book your appointment by Wednesday of the week before.
