Examinations – General Information
Every student has a right to write term papers, examinations and theses in English or in French except in courses where knowledge of a language is one of the objectives of the course.
Students will not be permitted to write an examination in any course unless they have fulfilled the requirements of the course to the satisfaction of the instructor and the Program Director. Once students have presented themselves for an examination or test, they must submit all written work to the invigilator before leaving.
Students writing examinations must have with them their valid McGill student ID card. Forgetfulness cannot be considered an acceptable excuse.
Students are reminded that cheating in any examination is considered a serious offence which could lead to expulsion from the University. Students are not permitted to have in their possession, or to use, any unauthorized materials during an examination. This includes electronic devices such as cellphones, iPods, MP3 players, PDA's and other web-access devices. Unauthorized items found on the student or desk area during an exam will be confiscated and turned over to the Disciplinary Officer.
Responses on multiple choice examinations are normally checked by the Exam Security Computer Monitoring Program. The program detects pairs of students with unusually similar answer patterns on multiple-choice examinations. Data generated by the program can be used as admissible evidence either to initiate or corroborate an investigation or a charge of cheating under Section 16 of the Code of Student Conduct and Disciplinary Procedures.
All students are responsible for knowing the University Examination Regulations and the Code of Student Conduct and Disciplinary Procedures. The former are normally posted during the examination period.
