While every effort is made to prevent conflicts in the final exam schedule, some conflicts are unavoidable. Students with a conflict as listed below are responsible for declaring their request for resolution on eService before the deadline. Eligible students will receive an amended exam schedule on eService. Contact us if you have questions or concerns.

  • The deadline to report a conflict for the Winter 2024 final exam periods:

    Session Section Deadline to report a conflict
    Winter 2024 Y and S Section courses  Thursday, March 21, 2024 (midnight Eastern Time)
    Summer 2024 F Section courses Sunday, June 9, 2024 (midnight Eastern Time)
    Summer 2024 S and Y Section courses Thursday, July 18, 2024 (midnight Eastern Time)
  • Path in eService: Exams-> Report Conflict
  • Once you submit your conflict resolution request on eService, you will receive a response through eService; check eService closer to your conflict date for updates.

‚ÄčImportant Note: Once your exam has been rescheduled, you will not be permitted to write the exam at the originally scheduled time. A request to reschedule an exam due to a conflict is not revocable. If you drop the course, your conflict resolution will be cancelled.

Religious observances

If your final exam is in conflict with a religious observance (i.e., Ramadan, etc.), you may request special consideration on eService to have your exam rescheduled during the next relevant time slot.

In your religious conflict request, specify the course(s) that conflict with the upcoming religious observances and the period of time of your anticipated absences.

Simultaneous exams

If you are scheduled to write two UTSC exams at the same time, arrangements may be made for you to write both exams on the same day with a supervised break.

If a conflict involves an online exam and an in-person exam, arrangements will be made by rescheduling the impacted online exam.

If a conflict involves a St. George or a UTM course and both exams are delivered in-person, arrangement will be made so that you may write both exams at the University of Toronto Scarborough.

Three consecutive exams

If you are scheduled to write three exams in three consecutive time slots, we will make arrangements to reschedule one of your exams to the first subsequent available time slot that will resolve the issue. This accommodation does not apply to students writing deferred exams. The following are the scenarios that will permit this resolution:

  • 9:00, 14:00, 19:00 (three exams in one day) or
  • 14:00, 19:00, followed by a 9:00 exam the next day or
  • 19:00, followed by a 9:00 and a 14:00 exam the next day


IMPORTANT NOTICE: Time Zone Conflict (No Longer Available)

Effective Fall 2022, Time Zone conflict arrangements will not be available for Online Exams. As the University shifts back to in person learning, students are also expected to be back on campus. Students are advised to be mindful of their travel plans during the Final Examination period and are expected to be available during the entire final exam period to attend their academic commitments as scheduled.
