Semester One Exams

Thursday, December 6 - Wednesday, December 12

View the draft 2018-19 Semester One Exam Schedule here. Please check back closer to exams for the final schedule. Students are only required to be on campus when they have exams

Morning exams start at 9:00 a.m. This start time provides a supportive testing schedule for those students who need a little extra time in the morning to rest, wake up, commute, or study. Afternoon exams start at 1:00 pm. A one hour lunch break occurs between exams. Students should bring a lunch or snacks.

All exams are scheduled for three hours. Students should plan to sit an exam for at least two hours before being excused. When not testing, students should keep to designated study areas and remain quiet and respectful of those students who are testing.

Have a testing conflict? Check in with your teacher/s or speak with Mr. Raymond to arrange an alternate testing time.

Do you require testing accommodations? Be sure to speak with your teachers about your approved accommodations and check in with Mrs. Moneypenny to confirm.
