Exam Blocks

Exam blocks

The exam blocks break down as follows:

  • A: 8:30 am
  • B: 12:00 pm
  • C: 3:30 pm
  • D: 7:00 pm

Exams are normally 2.5 hours in length. Exams scheduled through Scheduling Services cannot be longer than three hours and must adhere to the exam blocks noted above. If you need to schedule an exam that is more or less than 2.5 hours in length, it is important to note this on the SISC exam tab for accuracy on the SISC student’s exam schedule screen. 

Exams scheduled through Scheduling Services cannot be longer than three hours due to the preset exam blocks, the associated student exams and exam room bookings. Exams should also not be shorter than one hour.

Upper-level and graduate exams

Upper-level and graduate course sections can schedule exams at their convenience. Instructors/departments that opt to organize their own exams are reminded that the arrangement for the room and the exam booklets are the responsibility of the department. Final exam booklets for these exams can be purchased from Scheduling Services, but are not provided free of charge.
