*Please note: A decision regarding final exams will be made in the coming weeks. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation in Montreal.
Dear TAV students,
Due to the unprecedented nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, most TAV College instructors will be delivering their midterm exams in an online format for the Fall 2020 semester.
Please note that midterm exams for most science program specific courses will be maintained on campus in order to fulfill competency requirements. In other words, midterm exams for mathematics, biology, physics and chemistry will be given on campus. However, please rest assured that we are confident in our ability to ensure the safety of our staff and students while on campus and we will be implementing strict measures to ensure the safety of our community.
LIVE ONLINE EXAMS – HOW WILL THEY WORK?
Students will log into a synchronous (live) virtual classroom, from their home or workspace, the same way they would during a normal online class, and will write their exam while being invigilated by the course instructor within an allotted amount of time.
Please refer to the online exams webpage for full details.
WHAT IF I CANNOT DO MY EXAM FOR HEALTH REASONS?
These exams will be treated with the same level of authority as regular, in-person exams. As such, there will be no exceptions made and students will be expected to be available and on time during the day of their exam.
The only extraordinary circumstance for exam date deferrals that the College will allow is the presentation of a doctor’s note. Only then may the student make a Request for an Alternate Exam. If a student tests positive for COVID-19 and cannot complete their online exam, they must make a request for an alternate exam date.
