Informal Exam Reviews

Students may request an informal exam review in order to prepare to write an exam a second time, or to obtain additional information about his or her exam results.

Students who wish to engage in the informal exam review process should email deliverysupport@tru.ca.

As an instructor, once you have received a copy of the first attempt you will contact the student and schedule a time to discuss and review the student’s general strengths and weaknesses (without revealing questions or answers).

An informal exam review will not result in a changed grade for a student, it is for information only.
