SJAM Final Exams – Semester 1 and 2

For the 2018-19 school year SJAM will be aligning its Exam Schedule with the majority of other WRDSB schools following the “Exam by Period” model.  We will also be eliminating our Double Day schedules to spread out exams for students and maximize efficiency and study time.  Please do not hesitate to call Administration if you have any questions about this change to our final evaluations.

Click the graphic below to review the new exam schedule.

Benefits of the exam by period model include:

  • Students will only have 1 exam per day.
  • No course conflicts.
  • Exams written in the room students have spent the semester learning in with their own teacher.

Important Note: In June, Grade 12 students will write their Period A Exam 1 day earlier to help with our June Commencement.
