Other Information

Missed Midterm Tests: Allowance for a missed midterm test may be granted in the following two circumstances: (a) prior notice of a valid, documented absence (e.g. out-of-town varsity athletic commitment) on the scheduled date; or (b) notification to the instructor within 72 hours of absence due to medical condition. Otherwise the score is 0. Original written documentation (for example a doctor’s note or letter from a coach) is required.

Students with a scheduling conflict are allowed to write the test on an alternate date. Please contact your instructor for details about the alternate test.

Cheating: UBC takes cheating incidents very seriously. After due investigation, students found guilty of cheating on tests and exams are usually given a final grade of 0 in the course, suspended from UBC for one year, and a notation made on their Transcript of Academic Record. More information.
