Student Access to Final Examination Papers

Student Access to Final Examination Papers
Printable Version Printable Version

For many courses, final examinations are a major component of student assessment and often contribute substantially to the final grade awarded. In addition, final examinations may serve an important educational purpose in indicating to students what, and how well, they have learned in the course. Course instructors may choose to use a final examination for one or both of these objectives.

Students may request an informal review of a final examination (both the questions and the examination responses) up to one year from the date that the examination was written or until the date indicated in the course outline.

If students wish to challenge their mark on the final examination, the request must be made within one month of notification of the mark. Policy 70 dictates the challenge process.
