Students are encouraged to take every opportunity to view their April exams between Wednesday, May 18 to Wednesday, June 8, by coming up to the SAO, 4th floor NCDH, during office hours.

À partir du 18 mai 2016, les étudiants et étudiantes auront trois semaines, (18 mai au 8 juin 2016) pour se présenter au Secrétariat des études en droit, pour consulter leurs exams d’hiver 2016.

There will be staff on hand to retrieve exams for students as they come to the front counter. You will be asked to come to the counter with a completed exam review form and McGill ID card in order to assist the staff in locating and tracking exams.

Students who wish to review exams after the three week period will be required to complete the exam review form and submit to the SAO. Upon receipt, a date & time will be arranged for students to review the exams. Please allow a minimum of 5 working days.
