Exam policies
"Out of sequence exams" are offered for students observing religious holidays and students who
need out of sequence exam as ordered from the accessible education office.
We try first to accommodate students:
 who have other exams at the same time of the day overlapping with the exam.
 a concert or theater event (not rehearsal)
 a political election event in which the student with conflict is a major candidate
 participate in a important sports event (actual game or tournament) at that time
We also try to accommodate students with rehearsals, practice or regular classes, seminars or labs as
well as possible but with a large number of requests this is not possible and would compromise
the integrity of the exam. In case of a qualifying conflict, contact the course head
to see whether it is possible to arrange the exam earlier at the same day.
All requests should come a week before the exam.
