Final Exams

Should the Open Learning course you are taking have a final exam, then you must take that exam to complete the course. You must achieve at least 50% on the final exam to pass the course overall — anything less than 50% on the final exam will result in a fail for the course.

Most Open Learning courses have a virtual final exam that can be taken from home using an online proctoring service — ProctorU. Should your exam have this option, you can take your exam at any time that is convenient for you, as long as you take it prior to your course completion date. If your course has a “final exam” tab in Moodle, please refer to that for information about how to take your exam online. Students are responsible for the fee charged by the online proctoring service.

We also provide the choice of in-person examinations for students for whom it may not be feasible or desirable to take advantage of the online proctoring option. The in-person options will require students to take the exam at an approved testing centre or location. Students will be responsible for any fees charged by testing centres or locations and will need to arrange these exams themselves with the testing centres. In person exams must be scheduled at least three weeks in advance. Please contact if you have any questions on how to do this.

Some courses may not have a virtual final exam available, for those courses it will be an in person paper exam that must be taken at an approved testing location. In person exams must be scheduled at least three weeks in advance. 

Should you be unclear what options are available for your final exam in your course or if you have any exam related questions, please email
