7.1 Absence During Examinations

Leave of absence during examinations is only granted to a student for medical reasons as certified by an authorised medical practitioner and counter-signed by the Institute Medical Officer or for factors beyond the students control where leave of absence is applied for and granted.

In the case of mid-semester examinations there will be no make-up examinations. In place of the score of the mid-semester examination, the score of the rest of the evaluation will be extended on a pro-rata basis to replace the score for the missed examination.

In the case of end-semester examinations, the student can be awarded an I (or Incomplete) grade. The student must then appear for the end-semester examination for incomplete grade as scheduled. The score of this examination will be used in place of the missed examination.9
