QUESTION: If I have a flight on the day I have an exam and I write to the school, can they shift my exam?

  1. They aren't going to do it. Unless you have a doctor's note you're sol. Seriously though, they make it pretty explicit that you shouldn't book any flights during exam period. Why would you chance it?

    1. What 1 said. Why would you book a flight during exams? I hope you have flight insurance that accepts cancellations, or you can change the date.

      When you have back to back exams they let you move one my half an hour, maybe they will let you do this.

  3. No way, they mention this explicitly all the time. I always wondered why they repeated it so much when it's obvious. Guess some people do miss it...

  4. Yep, it's either the flight or the exam. You got yourself into a pickle.

  5. No. All the syllabi say that travel plans are not a valid excuse to miss an exam.

  7. I hope you booked this flight before you started university. However, if you missed that part of lecture....well....need I say more? :/

  8. Next time, book your vacation so that it cuts into the start of the term, not the end. I make sure my flights are after the last possible exam day, and I'll come back a week late if that's what needs to happen.
