Final Exam Policy

To preserve the integrity and security of the final exam process, students need to write their final exams at the scheduled times. Exceptions in the magnitude of a medical emergency, major illness, or funeral of an immediate relative/family member must be approved by a school administrator.

It is the responsibility of all students to ensure that they are fully aware of the final exam schedule. Missed exams due to unfamiliarity with the exam schedule will not constitute a viable excuse.

Students with exam conflicts (i.e., two exams scheduled at the same time) should report those conflicts ahead of time to the Assistant Principal in charge of final exams.

Cell phones, IPODS, MP3 players, Smart Watches, or any other electronic device capable of recording, sending, or receiving information are not permitted in the exam rooms. Only approved calculators are permitted.

Grade 10 and 11

Students will only be excused for acute illness or other serious unavoidable emergencies as long as official documentation (e.g., doctor’s note) is provided. Family vacations are not considered to be an unavoidable emergency. Families are strongly encouraged not to schedule family holidays during scheduled final exams. If a student is excused on the date of an examination, it is his or her responsibility to meet with the teacher and schedule an alternate time to complete the final exam.

Grade 12 Diploma Exams

Alberta Education stipulates that, in order for students to receive a final course mark, they must write the diploma examination. Only Alberta Education grants exemptions and deferrals for diploma exams. The school and school administration is not authorized to make these decisions.

Requests for Exemptions from Diploma Exam(s)

Requests for exemption from a diploma exam must comply with Alberta Education Student Evaluation Regulations. For diploma exams, please contact Mr. Wesley, Assistant Principal, as early as possible of any extenuating circumstances (e.g. a medical emergency) which may warrant a request for exemption and for assistance in preparing the required documentation to support and submit such a request. In all but the most extraordinary circumstances, Alberta Education will defer diploma exams to a later date rather than exempt the student from an exam.

Request for Deferral of Diploma Exam(s)

When a diploma exam is deferred to a later date/the next writing session, the final course mark and credits are withheld until such time as the final exam is written and a combined school mark and final exam mark result in a passing final mark for the course.
