Fall 2012 – Summer 2013
All students who miss a final exam are given a J grade. You then have the following options:
The grade earned is calculated by adding the grades obtained on the individual pieces of work and a grade of 0 for the portion of the final grade allocated to the final exam. This option is not available if the professor stipulated in the course outline that the final exam is a required part of the evaluation.
You must request option 1) no later than four months after the end of the examination period of the original course.
You must request option 2) by the faculty deadlines as indicated in Programs, Courses and University Regulations > University Regulations and Resources > Undergraduate > Examinations: General Information > Final Examinations > Final Examinations: Deferred Examinations.
You must request option 3) by the faculty deadlines as indicated at www.mcgill.ca/students/exams.
If you wish to appeal a J grade, you should write to your Associate Dean or Director.
