V.C.I. does NOT re-schedule examinations. Should a student miss a final examination, a mark of “0” will be issued automatically unless there are extenuating circumstances which prevent the student from writing. Extenuating circumstances acceptable to the school would include serious illness (Doctor’s note required), bereavement, family crisis, or other serious circumstance. V.C.I. would consider any such situations on a case by case basis and could either schedule a supplemental examination or award a credit in the course based solely on term marks if the case is warranted.
