Commonly Asked Questions

What items are permitted in the exam?

Any non-expired government-issued photo ID is acceptable.


What if I need to use the washroom during my exam?

We recommend using the washroom before you enter the exam room to avoid this issue. However, if you are ill or it is an emergency, an LAC proctor will escort you to the washroom. 


What if there appears to be an error in the writing of my exam?

The exam has been approved by your instructor. However, if there appears to be an error in the exam (not a content issue), please advise the proctor and the LAC team will contact your instructor to investigate.


When will my grades be posted?

The LAC is not involved in posting grades. It is best to check with your instructor on when grades will be posted
