As the fall academic term comes to an end, the TCSA would like to take the time to wish you the best of luck on your final assignments and exams! Your relaxing holiday is just around the corner, but remember, you need to wrap up your courses before you wrap up your presents!
In case you need a little help along the way, make sure to take advantage of the supports and services Trent has to offer. We also invite you to participate in the many (free!) TCSA Exam De-Stress events we have planned from December 7-9, including exam care packs, massages, and therapy dogs. For your convenience, exam and service information from the Trent University website is listed below. Good luck and happy holidays!
The December 2015 exam period runs from Thursday, December 10 to Tuesday, December 22, inclusive. In the event of inclement weather, exams may be cancelled and will be rescheduled to December 22, 2015; therefore, we strongly recommend that you do not make any travel arrangements prior to that date.
There are two types of undergraduate exam conflicts:
- Two or more exams at the same time (having two in one day is not considered a conflict)
- Three exams on the same calendar day. (Note: a calendar day is defined as 00:00-24:00 for exam purposes)
In the event of a conflict, please reach out to the academic department to arrange for an alternative writing date for one of the exams.
