QC students, community members voice concerns over in-person exams

November 24, 2020
Students and community members at some Quebec postsecondary institutions are voicing concerns about upcoming in-person exams. Polytechnique Montréal plans to hold in-person exams with up to 850 students divided between four halls, which some students felt was be unsafe. Students in some of Dawson College’s science programs also face in-person exams, and over 2,000 people have signed a petition arguing against the required in-person exams. Journal de Montréal reports that cégep students who were unable to write the épreuve uniforme de français (ÉUF) in the spring will be required to write the ÉUF in December, and a guidance counselor has raised concerns about how this additional exam will impact the mental health and exhaustion of students.
