If your examination schedule contains one of the following conditions, the University of Waterloo will ensure relief by making alternative scheduling arrangements:
- Writing two examinations in a row
- Writing in the last period on one day and the first period on the next day
You can elect to accept examination combinations that violate the above conditions; however, understand that petitions or appeals based on a violation of the above conditions will not be granted.
If you have one of the above conditions and wish to request alternative scheduling arrangements, complete a Request Relief from Consecutive Final Exams online during submission window listed on the form.
Contact your individual instructor if you require other alternate examination arrangements, e.g., illness with a doctor certificate. The Office of the Registrar has no involvement with this type of alternate examination arrangement.
