Conditions For Postponing The Midterm or Final Exams
Kindly be informed that the new regulations for postponing any exam starting from the academic year 2011/2012 are:
Hospitalization (and not clinic centers) due to an emergency medical situation on the exam day, with detailed medical report stamped from the Hospital and certified from the Medical Licensing Department.
Maternity (15 days after the child birth).
First degree relative death (3 days maximum before the exam day).
Car Accidents on the same day of the exam.
Travelling outside Kuwait due to work or accompanying a first degree relative patient.
Student should submit his force majeure excuse within three days of the exam’s convening date.
Applying for exam postponement does not mean that the application is accepted, since a special committee will study the excuses and decide either to approve or reject it.
The names that are accepted to do a Make-up exam will be announced on the LMS and on our website two weeks after the examinations period. And this declaration is a formal notification for each student who applied.
In case the excuse was found valid, letter (I) – Incomplete – shall be entered in the student’s academic record, provided that he has not failed in the Continuous Assessment. An (I) student shall be permitted to re-sit for the exam on its first subsequent session (note that summer course is considered optional).
If the student fails to re-sit the exam on its first subsequent session, the letter (I) shall be replaced with (F) – Fail – in his academic record.
It is strictly forbidden to postpone the postponed exam for any reason.
