If you miss assessment

Missed quizzes

  • If a student misses a quiz, that student shall provide a documented excuse otherwise a mark of zero will be entered for that quiz.
  • Examples of valid excuses are an illness which has been documented by a physician and Student Health Services, or an absence to play a varsity sport (your coach will provide you with a letter).
  • A physician's note must specifically state that the student was medically unfit to write the missed assessment on the date of the exam. Absence of this exact information will result in a mark of 0.
  • Your instructor should be notified within 48 hours of such an absence and appropriate documentation should be produced within 7 days. Failure to comply with these time limits will result in a mark of zero.
  • It is possible that if you are ill or absent (with proper documentation as above) your instructor may, at their discretion, arrange for you to take a quiz in another section - if your quiz is on a Thursday it may be possible to sit on a Friday in a different section (and vice versa).
  • Otherwise there will be no make-up quizzes, and the weight of the missed quiz will be transferred to the final examination.
  • Finally - Please note that a student may NOT have 100% of their assessment based on the final examination. A student who has not completed a substantial portion of the term work normally shall not be admitted to the final examination.

Missed final exam

  • You will need to present your situation to your faculty's Advising Office to be considered for a deferred exam.
  • See the Calendar for detailed regulations .
  • Your performance in a course up to the exam is taken into consideration in granting a deferred exam status (for instance, failing badly normally means you will not be granted a deferred exam).
  • For deferred exams in mathematics, students generally sit the next available exam for the course they are taking, which could be several months after the original exam was scheduled.
