Writing your exam

1. Check the date, time and location

You are responsible for ensuring the date, time and location of your exam is correct. Exam locations may change up to a few days before the scheduled examination date, so verify your own exam schedule in Memorial Self-Service and check with your professor/instructor before the exam period begins.

Online courses

If you are taking online courses and your exam location says "see Online Learning menu,"your exam location will not be listed in the Final Exam Schedule menu. To view the location of your online exam(s), check the Online Learning menu in Memorial Self-Service.

Online exam proctoring is available for selected online courses at Memorial. Professional proctors utilize webcams and microphones to remotely supervise students during their exams.


If you are registered with Accessibility Services (Blundon Centre) on the St. John’s campus and have exam accommodations, refer to the information provided to you by that office. Final exams written with Accessibility Services (Blundon Centre) are required to be booked 30 days prior to the start of the final exam period. Students registered with ACES on the Grenfell Campus and having exam accommodations should receive information about their final exam from the ACES staff.

2. Bring identification

Students must provide proof of identity. It is recommended that this take the form of your campus card, but any government-issued photo identification is acceptable.

3. Review the procedures

The University Senate has approved instructions regarding the conduct of exams in central locations. It is your responsibility to be familiar with the Conduct of Examinations and Invigilation Procedures, including the Examinations and Invigilation Guidelines for the Remote Learning Environment.
