Number of Exams

Under UC policy

A student must have not more than three exams in a row * (consecutively) and no more than two exams on any given day**.

*Three exams in a row are deemed to be:

  • A mid-session exam followed by a late session exam followed by an early-session exam the next day, or
  • A late- session exam followed by early and mid-session exams the next day.

**Two exams in one day are classified as either two exams in row eg: an early session exam and a mid-session exam or they can be separated by a session eg: an early session exam and a late session exam.

If a student exam load exceeds these rules the student should contact the Examinations Office immediately to have one of the exams rescheduled.

To read the policy in full, please refer to the Assessment Policy and Procedures.
