 Sent to all students on January 30, 2019 April 2019 Exam Schedule

Dear students,

This communication provides information regarding the April 2019 Exam Schedule, including :

•    where the schedule is posted

•    an explanation of consecutive exams 

•    what to do if you have 3 or more consecutive exams (deadline Wednesday, February 27, 2019)  

•    what to do if you think you need special accommodations for writing exams (deadline Wednesday, February 27, 2019)  

THE APRIL 2019 EXAM SCHEDULE IS POSTED

The April 2019 exam schedule, listed by course, is now available under the heading Exams on the web at http://www.mta.ca/Community/Academics/Registrars_Office/Schedules_and_Important_Dates/Schedules___important_dates/ . Your personalized exam schedule is available on CONNECT under ‘My Exam Schedule’, indicating when and where your exams will be held. 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.                                                                                                   

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 Centre 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 Wednesday, February 27, 2019.

Students who believe they have an exam conflict such that two exams are scheduled at the exact same time should contact the Registrar's Office at exams@mta.ca by Wednesday, February 27, 2019.

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 9-18 as indicated in the 2018-2019 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 Centre or the International Centre, should complete the Application for Exam Accommodation which is available online at http://www.mta.ca/Community/Academics/Registrars_Office/Forms/Exam_accommodation_request_form/ by Wednesday, February 27, 2019. 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 2018, 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 Wednesday, February 27, 2019 should plan to write their exams as scheduled.
