Exam hardship

You may be faced with examination hardship, which is defined as:

  • three or more end-of-term examinations scheduled within a 24 hour period
    • if and only if the start of the first exam to the completion of the last exam falls within a 24 hour period
  • an examination at one location (eg, the main Burnaby campus) followed immediately by an exam at another location (eg, the Surrey campus).

For three or more exams, you will be given a new exam date (within the established exam period) for the second exam causing hardship (by the respective instructor or department/faculty). If you have an exam at more than one location, advance arrangements will be made by your instructor or department/faculty for you to write both exams at a single location. You must notify your instructor(s) and department one month prior to the exam date.
