What is an exam conflict?

An exam conflict is defined as two final examinations scheduled at the same time on the same day. Three or more final examinations within a specified period of time (ie. 24 hours) is NOT considered to be an exam conflict.

Please scroll down at https://www.uoguelph.ca/registrar/calendars/undergraduate/current/c08/sec_d0e7755.shtml to read bullet 1. in the sub-section "Student Responsibilities" of the Examinations policy. The second part of that bullet reads "Students may not remain registered in courses with conflicting final examinations unless written approval is obtained from the dean or director and the instructors-in-charge of the courses. (Note that three examinations in 24 hours does not constitute an examination conflict. A conflict exists only where two examinations are scheduled into the same timeslot.) ”
