The Exam Timetable is produced by computer from the list of courses which are to be scheduled from EACH STUDENT'S course registration. The University attempts to prepare an efficient timetable so that students (who are properly registered) will not have conflicts in their exam times. The scheduling program also tries to reduce the number of students writing back to back exams.
Requests for special dates of exams cannot be accommodated. Similarly, class votes on changes in the scheduled date of an exam cannot be approved.
You need to complete a Request for Academic Concession form.
You must submit this form along with documentation validating the absence (doctor's note, obituary notice.) Midterm exams are handled by the department of the course you are registered in. Contact them directly.
The request must be submitted within ten working days of the end of the examination period, to support consideration for Aegrotat or Deferred standing. If you fall ill during an examination, report at once to the invigilator in charge.
A student who completes all course requirements, including writing the final examination, is not eligible for an academic concession. Exceptions may only be considered by the dean (or designate) of the student's faculty if there is supporting documentation that the student was not medically or otherwise fit to make a decision on whether or not to write the examination. A Request for Academic Concession must be submitted to Office of the Registrar as soon as possible after the examination and before the results of the examination are known.
- Viewing of final written exams stored in Office of the Registrar will start on the 3rd Tuesday after the December and April exam periods. See Final Exam Viewing for a list of written exams available for viewing at Office of the Registrar.
Exam viewing is held in Undergrad Records or the Department. It is the decision of the Department whether exams are sent to Undergrad for storage.
For all courses that do not have a final exam grades are to be submitted 7 calendar days after the last day of class."

You will need to fill out a Grade Review Request form.
There is a $25.00 per course charge for a formal review as all course work may be reviewed by a separate panel. If the grade goes up, you will have your money returned.
