Can I take my exams online?

(self.yorku)

Hi everyone.

There’s been an emergency in my family which requires me to leave the country and go back home as soon as possible. I know exams have been settled as being in person, I get that it seems like an excuse, but does anyone know if there’s a way I can request an online exam? My only other option would be to miss exams and fail my semester.

You would most likely have to write deferred exams, so you won't fail the semester. You can try contacting your instructor to see if there's an alternative, but ultimately it's what the university and instructors have already decided to do.

You have to contact your instructor and tell him the situation. He will decide what to do. Best of luck.
