Exam conflicts

All exam conflicts are to be reported to the Office of Undergraduate Studies by writing to arts@uottawa.ca.

There are three types of exam conflicts :

  • First-order conflict: two exams on the same date, same time
  • Second order conflict: three consecutive exams within a period of 24 hours (ex. Tuesday, 7pm to 10pm, Wednesday, 9:30am to 12:30pm, Wednesday 2pm to 5pm)
  • Third order conflict: two in class exams one after the other, this applies only to students registered with Access Services

Exam conflicts are applied to exams written solely in class. They do not apply to take-home exams
