EVALUATION SCHEME (Winter 2014):
|Term Tests (2)
1. A minimum Lab mark of 50% is
required to pass the course. Lab Waivers will NOT be granted.
2. Make-up labs will NOT be available. In cases where a lab has been missed due to illness, a request to adjust the lab mark must be supported by a note from a physician. See below for information regarding medical notes.
3. Make-up term tests will NOT be available. In cases where a test has been missed due to illness, a request to adjust the test mark must be supported by a note from a physician within one week of the test date. See below for information regarding medical notes.
4. There will be no supplementary exam.
The information required for medical certificates is specified in general regulation 5.14.4 of the University Calendar. For the convenience of students, this is quoted below:
1. Students who request permission to drop courses, to withdraw from University studies, to have examinations deferred or to obtain other waivers of University, departmental or course regulations based on health issues are required by the University to provide, in support of the request, a certificate from a health professional in the form of a note or letter. Such notes must be sufficiently specific to allow a proper consideration of students' cases. The University requires that all such notes must be on letterhead, must be signed by the health professional, must confirm the specific dates on which the student visited the health professional and should include details on the following:
- the degree to which the health issue (or treatment, in the case of medication, for example) is likely to have affected the student's ability to study, attend classes, or sit examinations.
- the length of time over which the student's abilities were likely hampered by the condition (e.g., recurring and severe back pain over a two-month period would likely have a more adverse effect on studies than a single episode of back pain requiring bed rest for a week)
- the fitness of the student to resume studies (it is in the student's best interest not to return to studies prematurely).
2.Confidentiality: The University respects the confidentiality of all material contained in such notes. Students should request that their health professional retain a copy of such a note in case the note needs to be verified or reissued at a later date.
