Dear student,

 

Final Exam Schedule Published 

The final exam schedule has been posted on www.mcgill.ca/exams. Students receiving exam accommodations through the OSD are required to use the online exam sign-up form to request accommodations for final exams (December 5th - 20th), no later than November 1st 2019. 

 

Final Exam Conflicts

If you meet the definition for an academic conflict, or a religious conflict for your exams, please consult the McGill Exams Website and follow the processes outlined in order to obtain a resolution. These are coordinated directly via the Central Exams Office, who then communicate with the OSD.

 

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 the week of November 4th 2019 by a member of the Exam Center Staff. 

 

ADHD Skills Building Group

The OSD will be offering an ADHD Skills Building Group. This group consists of a six-week program in which students with ADHD will learn a variety of self-management skills to improve their organization, their ability to stay focused, and their ability to manage stress. This group will be meeting Tuesday mornings from Oct 8 to Nov 12 with all sessions held at 1010 Sherbrooke, Suite 410. 

To join, you must: a) have a confirmed diagnosis of ADHD, b) be registered at the OSD, and c) commit to attending all 6 sessions.

 

If you are interested, please email Dr. Giuseppe Alfonsi at giuseppe.alfonsi@mcgill.ca. There is currently space for four more participants, with registration staying open until Wednesday October 2nd at noon.
