Examinations and grading

It is important to be aware of the following points regarding examinations for liberal arts and sciences courses (excluding open courses).

  • Regular examinations are held at the end of the semester.
  • As a general rule, tests are written tests, but there are situations when a report, oral exam, experiment report, etc., is used in place of a written test.
  • Students must place their student ID on the desk when taking an examination.
  • Students are not allowed to enter the examination room if they are more than 20 minutes late.

    Students are permitted to leave the examination room 30 minutes or more after the start of the examination. However, students are not allowed to leave the examination room 5 minutes or less before the end of the examination.

    Students who leave the examination room should do so quietly so as not to disturb other students.

  • The examination time is determined by a standard electric clock or the proctor’s watch set to the standard electric clock.
  • Students must not cheat during examinations.

    If students are caught cheating, the dean of the school they study at will be notified by the Institute of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Disciplinary measures, such as losing all credits for courses taken that semester, will be decided upon at the school’s faculty meeting based on the “Nagoya University Student Disciplinary Rules .”

  • Examinations for Open Courses follow the rules of individual departments, such as the Lecture Department.
