Two or more examinations scheduled at the same time would be considered a conflict. Our examinations department will notify all students who have been scheduled with conflicting exams, and provide further information and instruction In the event that you have two exams scheduled at the same time and have not been contacted by our examinations department, please contact us at examinations@brocku.ca.

If you have two term tests that are in conflict but are not scheduled during the end of term exam period, discuss the conflict with your instructors as soon as possible to make other arrangements.

If you have three exams scheduled for the same calendar day, please consult your teaching faculty members for assistance in receiving an accommodated date and time. While the Office of the Registrar endeavors to produce conflict-free timetables (Course and Examination), it is not always possible.

Unfortunately, if the three exams do not occur on the same calendar day, it would not be considered a conflict. While the situation may be stressful, please plan in advance to write the exams as scheduled.
