To access your own personalized exam schedule go to the Mount Allison home page at www.mta.ca, and click CONNECT@MTA which appears in the menu bar across the top of the screen.

Students are advised to re-check the final exam schedule posted on the web prior to exams to make sure they have noted the correct date, time and location of their final exams. The exam schedule will be updated on the web and in CONNECT to reflect any changes that may occur since the original posting so it is wise to check the schedule again prior to the start of exams to ensure you have noted the right time and location.

PLEASE NOTE: Correspondence course exams are also listed in your personalized exam schedule that is available on CONNECT under ‘My Exam Schedule’, indicating when and where your exams will be held. Additionally, correspondence exams are listed on the April Exam Schedule posted online http://www.mta.ca/Registrars_Office/Schedules_and_important_dates/Schedules___important_dates/. Please make note of the date and time.

DEFINITION OF THREE CONSECUTIVE EXAMS
Scenario 1: exams at 9:00, 2:00 and 7:00 on the same day
Scenario 2: exams at 2:00 and 7:00 on the same day and 9:00 a.m. the next day
Scenario 3: exams at 7:00 p.m. on one day and 9:00 and 2:00 on the next day

These are the only three scenarios which qualify as three consecutive exams.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE 3 OR MORE CONSECUTIVE EXAMS OR AN EXAM CONFLICT
In a very few cases, the exam schedule may result in some students having three consecutive exams (see definition above). Please note that there is no Senate policy prohibiting three consecutive exams occurring. However, upon request, the Registrar's Office will attempt to assist students in getting one of the exams re-scheduled if the student has three or more consecutive exams. Students who require special accommodation through the Meighen Center or the International Centre which allows for additional time to write an exam, should consult with the Registrar’s Office to determine if they qualify for accommodation for the writing of consecutive exams.

Students who believe they have three consecutive exams and wish assistance with attempting to have one of those exams re-scheduled should contact the Registrar's Office at exams@mta.ca by Friday, February 24, 2017.

Students who believe they have an exam conflict such that two exams are scheduled at the exact same time (e.g. two correspondence exams or a correspondence exam and an on-campus course exam) should contact the Registrar's Office at exams@mta.ca by Friday, February 24, 2017.

If it is confirmed that you have three consecutive exams or an exam conflict, we will attempt to reschedule one of your exams, in consultation with the instructor(s). We will be in touch with you as soon as possible to let you know what your new exam schedule will be. Your exam could be re-scheduled for any time within the official final exam period of April 11-21 as indicated in the 2016-2017 Academic Calendar.  Students should keep this in mind when planning travel arrangements.  Please note, in the case of consecutive exams, if you are not happy with the accommodations that have been made in your revised schedule, the alternative will be to write the exams at the originally scheduled times.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU THINK YOU NEED SPECIAL ACCOMMODATIONS FOR WRITING EXAMS   
Students who think they need special accommodations for exam writing for reasons other than those that are accommodated through the Meighen Center or the International Centre should complete the Application for Exam Accommodation which is available online at http://www.mta.ca/Registrars_Office/Academic_regulations/Exams/Exam_accommodation/Exam_accommodation/ by Friday, February 24, 2017. If it is determined that your circumstances warrant consideration for special accommodation, we will attempt to accommodate your request in consultation with the instructor(s). Please be advised that since the exam period has been available in the Calendar of Events in the Academic Calendar since April 2016, travel arrangements made prior to or after the exam schedule has been posted generally do not constitute consideration for special accommodation.

Please Note:   Students who do not identify problems with their exam schedule by Friday, February 24, 2017 should plan to write their exams as scheduled.
