IMPORTANT INFOMATION FOR DECEMBER EXAMS
 
All Students Writing Proctored Exams 
  
Check your exam date and time in SOLUS 
Your exam date and time can be found in your SOLUS account. On your SOLUS main page, under the ‘Academics’ section, click on the ‘other academic…’ dropdown menu; ‘Exam Schedule’ will be the 11th menu item listed. Click on it, then click on the ‘Go’ icon; from this screen, you will be able to view your exam date and time. 
  
Examity online proctoring 
All proctored exams will be written with Examity online proctoring. You will receive an announcement in your onQ course page approximately 2 weeks before your exam with directions for logging into Examity and scheduling your exam(s). All details will be provided in this announcement, so please be sure to check your onQ page carefully. The exam will begin on the day and time set in SOLUS, but there will be a 36-hour window open with several times for you to choose from. Therefore, students writing in any time zone will be able to book their exam to suit their own schedule.  
  
Practice test 
You will be given the opportunity to take a Practice Test with Examity between November 22 and December 3, which allows you to run through the authentication process and what will be expected of you during your actual exam. The full list of technical requirements for Examity can be found here.  
  
Academic Consideration 
Students are expected to write their exams as scheduled, which includes arranging work and travel to accommodate the exam schedule/details provided. Changes to the dates or start times of exams cannot be made at this time unless you feel you have extenuating circumstances preventing you from writing the exam as outlined in the academic consideration policy. If this is the case, please fill out the form on that website. Further Information on Exam Regulations and Academic Integrity are available here
  
Accommodations 
Students who have submitted a Letter of Accommodation through the Academic Accommodations and Considerations portal on their onQ page will have their applicable accommodations applied to their exam on Examity. Extra time accommodations will not reflect in the length of your exam when you schedule it with Examity. They are applied directly to the exam in onQ.
