Final Exams and the OSD
For all students who have exam accommodations as part of their individual accommodation plan:
The deadline to register for Fall 2019 finals, scheduled between December 5th - 20th was November 1st 2019.
Students who have missed the final exam deadline must sign up using the exam sign-up form, and their submissions will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Students will be contacted with the outcome of their late sign up request once it has been reviewed by an Exam Center staff.
We cannot guarantee our ability to schedule requests received after the November 1st deadline.
What to expect:
- Evening exam time changes: all exams scheduled during the 6:30 pm session will be rescheduled to start earlier for all OSD students. You will be informed via email starting the week of November 25th about your updated exam time.
- Sequestering: all students writing evening exams (6:30 pm session) will be required to be sequestered until 7:30 pm, regardless of the time that the student finishes their exam. Students will not have access to personal electronic devices while being sequestered However, snacks or physical reading materials are permitted. Sequestered students remain supervised until the sequester period is over. Sequestering is not optional, due to exam security policies on campus.
Final Exam Conflicts
If you meet the definition for an academic conflict, or a religious conflict for your exams, consult the McGill Exams Website and follow the instructions in order to obtain a resolution. These types of conflicts are coordinated directly via the Central Exams Office.
Due to the nature of their exam accommodations, some students registered with the OSD may meet the criteria for an OSD student conflict. An OSD student conflict occurs when a student, by virtue of their disability-related exam accommodations, are scheduled to write more than 8 hours of exams in one day. For students who have signed up for their exams, and meet the criteria for an OSD conflict, you will be contacted via your McGill email starting this week (November 11th) by a member of the Exam Center Staff.
