There are currently no final exams in the Faculty of Arts & Science. Instead, courses may have final assessments which will take place during the final asessment period.
Most Winter 2021 final assessments for S and Y courses will be scheduled from April 13 - 23, 2021 inclusive (except for Sunday, April 18, 2021). Some final assessments may have a due date up to and including April 30.
Final assessment details will not be posted on the Faculty’s website or in ACORN as they will be communicated directly to students by course instructors. For additional and up-to-date information, check the Arts & Science Student FAQs and the University of Toronto’s website.
Faculty final examination counting for between one-third and two-thirds of the final mark must be held in each 100-series course, unless exemption has been granted by the Faculty of Arts & Science. Courses in the 200-series will normally have a final examination. In 200-, 300- and 400-series courses, the Departments will decide whether or not an examination is appropriate. The ratio of term work to examination mark will be the same for all sections of multi-section courses that have final examinations. The relative value of each part of a written examination must be indicated on the question paper.
Final examinations are held at the end of each session or sub-session. Students taking courses during the day may be required to write evening examinations, and students taking evening courses may be required to write examinations during the day. Examinations may be held on Saturdays. Students who make personal commitments during the examination period do so at their own risk. No special consideration is given and no special arrangements are made in the event of conflicts resulting from personal commitments.
Students who are unable to write their examinations due to illness, etc., should contact their College Registrar.
Students who have two Faculty final examinations at the same time, or three consecutive Faculty final examinations (e.g., morning, afternoon, evening; or afternoon, evening, next morning) should report the conflict to the Office of the Faculty Registrar by the deadline shown on the examination schedule. Information regarding dates, times and locations of examinations will not be given by telephone or email; for the most up to date examination timetable see above.
Students who cannot write a final examination at the scheduled time because of a religious obligation should report this conflict to the Office of the Faculty Registrar as soon as the conflict is known, and no later than the deadline shown on the examination schedule.
