Exam Conflicts and Multiple Exam Situations

(December and April exam periods only)

By maintaining BOTH a Conflict and a Multiple Exam policy, it is Western University's objective to provide students with a fair exam schedule.  We remain committed to supporting all students during their studies at Western. (Please note that for the purpose of calculations, a Sunday 10:00 a.m. start time is the equivalent of a normal 9:00 a.m. start time).

A. Direct Final Exam Conflict

If you have two FINAL examinations in the same time slot (e.g. two exams scheduled at 2:00 p.m. on the same day), you will receive an email to your Western email account.  The email will provide details on how to proceed and appropriate people to contact.

B. Direct Mid-Year/Mid-Year or Mid-Year/Final Conflict

If you are scheduled to write either one final exam and one mid-year test or 2 mid-year tests at the same time during the December or April exam periods, you will be emailed as a courtesy, however, you are responsible for contacting your Faculty Academic Counselling Office to make alternate arrangements.

C. Multiple Exam Situation (Examples below)

A multiple exam situation is defined as:

3 or more exams/mid-year tests scheduled within 3 consecutive periods* or 23 hours;

4 or more exams/mid-year tests scheduled within 6 consecutive periods* or 47 hours; or

5 or more exams/mid-year tests scheduled within 9 consecutive periods* or 71 hours.
