Questions from Students
What is the difference between a Test and an Exam?A Test refers to short quizes, tests, and exams. A test takes place outside of the faculty designated exam period.
An Exam is a test that takes place within the faculty designated Exam period.
The difference between a test and an exam is often confused because a professor (or department) may casually refer to a test as an exam or vice versa. To keep it simple, just follow the instructions posted according to the date you are to write the test or exam.
