Final exams are held during the Official Examination Periods in December and April. They should be worth at least 25% but not more than 75% of a total grade (University Student Assessment Policy, 6.1.3).
In the case of missed assignments or accommodations, students may elect to write a final worth more than 75%. However, they must also be given the choice of another assessment (6.1.3).
Due to the ongoing pandemic, additional policies have been put in place for the Winter 2021 Semester, governing remote examination. These policies can be found here.
Some faculties, such as Law, administer their own final exams through their Student Affairs offices. In those cases, students may be subject to additional regulations from their Faculties. If you are unsure, contact your Faculty Student Affairs office for more information, and, as always, reach out to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org if you think your student rights are being violated.
