Formal final examinations are held during the examination period following the term in which the course is given (fall and winter terms only). The dates of the examination periods are listed in Important Dates as well as the Exam Schedules webpage. In some courses there is no final exam; academic standing in these courses is determined on the basis of assignments and evaluations completed throughout the term. While the majority of final examinations occur during the examination period, some final evaluations occur in-class. Refer to the course syllabus for methods of evaluation specific to a course.
