Term-end Examinations

Term-end Examinations 

Term-end examinations refer to examinations that take place in the last week of each semester .(exam/make-up period: July 31 to August 5; January 23 to January 29). These examinations may take place at a different venue from the regular classroom. Check the details on ToyoNet-G.

In-term Examinations

In-term examinations refer to the examinations that take place during regular class hours. Please take these examinations following the instructions of the faculty member in charge. These examinations generally take place in the regular classrooms. If a different venue is to be used, only the students enrolled in the relevant class will be notified via ToyoNet-G.
