McGill exam schedule affected by provincial election

November 13, 2008

McGill University is making adjustments to its fall term exam schedule due to the Quebec provincial election on December 8. Under Quebec law, student electors must be released from school on election day, which is taking place on the busiest day of the exam period. The rescheduling of exams may affect students who have already arranged travel plans for the winter break based on the previous schedule. McGill's Office of the Provost has written to the Directeur Général des Elections asking for an exemption and that exams remain on election day. McGill Daily (student newspaper)
