Examination FAQs

You will not be permitted to write an exam without your student ID card. If you forget your card, you may request to issue you an ID verification form for the day at the front desk. Please note that you can apply for an ID verification only once during your studies at AC. If you had already applied in the past and forget your ID card again, you will not be issued another one and you will not be permitted to write the exam. You will be required to go home to get your ID card (30 minute exam rule still applies) or make a new one at the library for a fee.

In both cases you will have to apply for a Final Exam Deferral. Please read more about Final Exam deferrals here).
