Please note: If you are in an in-person course, your exams must also be written in-person (unless online testing is part of your accommodations). The Testing Centre provides a distraction reduced environment to write exams. Ear plugs are also available to all students. The individual rooms within the Test Centre cannot be requested, and are only guaranteed in cases where they are part of an approved accommodation from Accessibility Services.

Deadline to booking/registering your exam

Students must book/register their exams at least 5 business days in advance of the exam.

We strongly recommend you book/register your exams as soon as you know exam dates from your instructor - the earlier you book, the more likely you will get the time and date that you prefer! At minimum, you must book/register your exams with Accommodated Exams at least 5 business days in advance of the day you need to write. This includes in cases where you want to re-book/re-register your exam for a different date/time. Business days are Monday to Friday (opening hours found here), which do not include weekends, statutory holidays, or days the college is fully closed.

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 register your exam by Wednesday of the week before.
  • You need to write your Vocabulary Quiz on Thursday. At the very latest, you must book your appointment by Thursday of the week before.

 

Please note that your booking/registration deadlines may be different for final exams. Please see the page in this Guide called "Important Information for Final Exams" for more information.

What happens if I don't book/register my exams at least 5 business days in advance? 

Booking/registering your exam 5 business days in advance gives Accommodated Exam Services the ability to reserve your seat and/or prepare your accommodations. If you do not book/register at least 5 business days in advance, and the writing window set by your instructor has closed, you will not be able to write your exam with Accommodated Exams. Your instructor will be notified, and they will determine next steps with you. Please note that depending on the situation, this may be considered to be a missed exam by your program area.
