Spring Examinations 2022

Information regarding short-term accommodations for students returning to campus to write makeup exams can be found here: https://conference.has.uwo.ca/Register/default.aspx?code=C001204. Please note that availability is limited.

How, and where, do I check the exam schedule?

  • The Final April Exam Schedule is now posted online at: http://myexams.uwo.ca .  Please review your schedule carefully. 


What do I do if I have time conflicts?

  • If you have two FINAL exams scheduled in the same time slot and neither is a Business course (i.e. two exams scheduled at 2:00pm on the same day), you will have received an email to your Western (@uwo.ca) account.  Details will be provided on how to proceed and the appropriate people to contact.
  • If you have multiple exams within a short timeframe, please see the information available relating to a “Multiple Exam Situation” at: https://registrar.uwo.ca/academics/examinations/exam_conflicts.html


What if I am going to miss an exam due to illness or need to self-isolate according to the provincial self-assessment tool?

  • Where possible, students should inform their Instructor prior to the date of the exam.
  • You will need to present a Student Medical Certificate (SMC), signed by a licensed medical or mental health practitioner, detailing the duration and severity of illness, or appropriate documentation supporting extenuating circumstances to your home faculty Academic Counselling Office no later than two business days after the date specified for resuming responsibilities.


What can I do on the day of an exam if I have an emergency?

  • Where possible, students should inform their Instructor prior to the date of the exam.
  • Contact your Home Faculty Academic Counselling unit immediately, and be prepared to provide supporting documentation. If your emergency occurs on a weekend, contact your Home Faculty Academic Counselling unit on the subsequent Monday morning.
  • If you have a medical concern, and are visiting an off-campus physician, please ensure you bring a copy of the Student Medical Certificate. This is the documentation the Home Faculty Academic Counselling units will expect to see to determine if a make-up exam is warranted.
  • If you decide to write your exam, you should be prepared to accept the mark you earn. Re-writing exams, or having the value re-weighted on a retroactive basis, is not normal practice.


What do I need to think about if I were to request an Academic Consideration for my final exam?

  • Carefully consider the implications of postponing exams or delaying handing in work.  For example, a delay in completing your work may impact you if you are expecting to graduate in June or, if you are continuing your studies next year, may impact the timing of your course registration appointment. Check with your academic counselling office to confirm potential impacts.
  • You are encouraged to make appropriate decisions based on your specific circumstances, recognizing that minor ailments (upset stomach) are not normally an appropriate basis for an academic consideration.
  • You must communicate with your instructors no later than 24 hours after the end of the period covered by the Student Medical Certificate, or immediately upon your return following a documented absence.


Why can I not submit a SRA or a SIRT?

  • The deadline to submit a SIRT is April 5th at 11:59 p.m. and will cover student absence until April 9.
  • The deadline to submit a SRA is April 8th at 11:59 p.m. and will cover students until April 9. The SRA will reopen May 9th at 12:00 a.m. for the Summer session.
  • If you find that you need to self-isolate after April 5th, contact your home faculty academic counselling office https://www.registrar.uwo.ca/faculty_academic_counselling.html
