Health Sciences Students Unable to Attend a Scheduled Exam SessionThe School of Health Sciences recognizes the challenges some students experience in balancing their work obligations with their studies. Many of our distance programs allow students to choose their exam sessions from the various session dates that are pre-scheduled with the BCIT Test Centre. This provides students with schedule options while meeting the testing requirements of each program, and works for the vast majority of our distance students.
However, if you are living in the Lower Mainland and find that the exam session options pre-scheduled for your course(s) unavoidably conflict with your work obligations, please contact your program area as soon as possible to discuss your options. You can find your program assistant on the Contacts page of your DE Student Handbook.
You may be given permission to use the BCIT Test Centre as a proctor to supervise your exam at a time and date other than what has been pre-scheduled. An invigilation fee is required.
If you have received permission to write your exam outside the pre-scheduled dates at the Test Centre, you can proceed to the Test Centre's Exam Session Request web app at https://secure.bcit.ca/testcentreinvigilation/ to request a session.
- You must schedule to write your exam within the time period specified in your course syllabus or by your program area.
- When completing the exam session request information:
- Your "Home Institution" refers to BCIT.
- Your "Home Institution Student Number" is your BCIT A0#.
- The "Home Institution Exam Contact" is your program assistant.
*Please note that alternate exam session scheduling is not available to students studying in Cardiac Science programs.
