Conflicts

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 no later than 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 Fall 2020 December Final Exams is Wednesday, November 25, 2020.

Simultaneous exams

If you are scheduled to write two UTSC online exams at the same time, arrangements may be made for you to write one of the online exams after the other one.

If a conflict involves a UTM course, arrangements will be made by rescheduling the impacted UTSC exam.

If a conflict involves a St. George course, we ask you to first ask the instructor of your UTSG exam to reschedule that exam. If this is not possible, you must provide evidence of scheduling conflicts for the UTSG exam.

Three exams in four consecutive time slots

If you are scheduled to write three exams in four 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:

  • 8:00, 12:00, 16:00 (three exams in one day) or
  • 8:00, 16:00, 20:00 (three exams in one day) or
  • 12:00, 16:00, 20:00 (three exams in one day) or
  • 12:00, 16:00, followed by an 8:00 the next day or
  • 12:00, 20:00, followed by an 8:00 the next day or
  • 16:00, 20:00, followed by an 8:00 exam the next day or
