Important Sessional Dates Final exam period for S- and Y- section code courses and some deferred exams from December 2013 WEDNESDAY, APRIL 9TH — WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30TH Good Friday; University closed FRIDAY, APRIL 18TH

April Exam Tips and Tricks The April Exam schedule of final exams for Y- and S-section courses is being updated frequently; check it out at: The Office of Student Academic Integrity (OSAI) asks us to pass on important reminders about exams and exam conduct. You are responsible for familiarizing yourself with their rules as well as the Code of Conduct on Academic Matters. All instances of misconduct are taken very seriously and are pursued rigorously and the consequences can be severe. 

Don’t forget to bring your T-card as you will sign in during the exam itself.

Running late? If you are running late it's best to go directly to the exam hall regardless; report to an official there who will advise you of your options. They can let students start late, but you won't get any extra time.

Feeling sick? If you are sick for an exam and cannot write it, go see a doctor and get a UofT Medical Certificate filled out right away with that day's date on it, and contact the Registrar's Office. There is a petition process for deferring exams. To find out more about this process, visit:

Missed the exam entirely? Go to the registrar's office. We can discuss options.

GOOD LUCK ON YOUR EXAMS! Pssst… The Residence Events Room will be a dedicated study space from April 9TH until the end of exams!
