Mock Final Exams

The Academic Success Centre will not be distributing mock exams for Fall 2017.

 

It has been brought to our attention that the courses previously supported by mock exams have changed significantly.The course content and structure of the mock exam questions are no longer up to date with current course content. We are in the process of modifying and revising mock exam content in collaboration with faculty. We hope to make mock exams available at the end of Winter 2018.
