Final Exams Schedule

Final Exams Timetable (In French)

The draft timetable of final examinations is available:
●    For the fall semester: around mid-October;
●    For the winter semester: around mid-February;
●    For the summer semester: around mid-June.

Why a draft timetable? Because we produce two versions of the final exams timetable: the draft timetable and the final version.

After the publication of the draft timetable, you have five working days to investigate moving an exam (if you have a conflict). The procedure required is described in the draft timetable.

The final versions of the timetable and the locations of the exams are available in My ÉTS.

It is your responsibility to know the academic calendar, including the exam period.

In accordance with the Academic Regulations, any absence from a final exam must be justified with documentary proof. There must be a major reason beyond your control to miss a final exam. Medical notes must mention the name of the disability and the reason for the same, and must be dated the same day as the exam.

Any justification of absence from a final exam must be presented within five working days after the date of the exam (the period starts on the day after the exam takes place). Any request that does not respect this condition will be refused. 

No absence from a deferred exam will permit a retake.

How to Proceed

1. Send your request by email to the Office of the Registrar at accueilbdr@etsmtl.ca and include: ​

  • Your full name;
  • Your permanent code;
  • The course code and group of the exam missed;
  • The instructor’s name;
  • The reason for the absence, explained in detail. If because of illness, medical notes must mention the name of the disability and the reason for the same, and must be dated the same day as the exam;
  • Include your proof in PDF format (the original must be sent by Canada Post or submitted by hand to the Office of the Registrar).

2.  If your request is accepted:

  • You will receive a reply by e-mail;
  • Your instructor will be informed;
  • The Office of the Registrar will assign a code of Deferred. You will see an R under Signets (bookmarks).

3.  The exact schedule of deferred examinations will be sent to your ÉTS e-mail address no later than one week before they are held. Deferred exams always begin on the second Thursday of the following semester. They are spread over a period of 1 week and are always held either in the evening (6 to 9 p.m.) or on Saturday.

4.    If your request is refused:
