Heyyy there 🙂
I’m currently a student at UTM and I have a question about my academic rights as a student. I was making a calendar for the month of March and I noticed that for one of my sociology courses I have a test worth 25% of my grade, AND and assignment worth 15% of my grade for the same class due on the same day, which is March 31st. However, when I was looking at the syllabus for one of my other classes (a history course) it states at the very end that as a UTM student I have an academic right to NOT have a term test worth 25% or more in the last two weeks…. Is this correct?? Or do my academic rights as a student change from course to course? I already emailed my prof to make sure whether it is, or isn’t a typo, but he hasn’t responded so I thought I’d check with you 🙂
to quote the UTM academic handbook: “No term test or combination of term tests having a value greater than 25% of the final mark may be held in the last two weeks of classes at the end of ANY session – Fall, Winter, or Summer” (page 16). that seems pretty clear to me. I hope you were able to sort it out with your professor.
best of luck!
