Final Examinations
Printable Version Printable Version
  1. In all courses each student is required to submit (in such form and at such time as may be determined by the instructor) evidence of satisfactory participation. The marks obtained from work during the term are used in part in determining standing.
  2. Failure to write an examination is ordinarily considered a failure to pass (32). A student who defaults a final examination, except for a properly certified reason, shall have no make-up examination privileges and may be required to repeat the work in class. If a student fails to write for medical reasons, a Doctor's certificate covering the precise period of absence must be filed in the Registrar's Office within one week of the set examination date.
  3. A student will be eligible for deferred examinations only when failure to pass is attributable to extraordinary circumstances. In addition, students:
    • must have attended a reasonable number of lectures in the course in which they propose to write, and must have satisfied all course work requirements; 
    • must have secured the permission of the professor concerned.
