How Do I Write My Final Exam?
You need to arrange your final exam 10 days in advance, and you need to have finished and submitted all coursework before you take the exam.
Please be advised that once the exam is written, any outstanding coursework will be given a grade of zero. Please ensure that you have submitted all coursework before writing the final exam.
You have three options for taking the exam;
Option 1: Take it at a Blyth Academy Campus
If you live close to a Blyth Academy Campus, or if you attend a Blyth Academy Campus, you can take your exam there.
Once inside the exam scheduling interface, please click Login/Create Account. Check for an available time and date at the campus of your choosing. The earliest available date will be open in the next 3-5 business days. You cannot book an exam in more than one campus or multiple times at the same campus. You will receive an automatic confirmation email with next steps and exam information. You can cancel and reschedule anytime using the same link.
Students are required to provide their own laptop for exams written at the campuses.
Option 2: Arrange Your Own Proctor
You are permitted to arrange your own proctor, however, this will not be an option for Math and Science courses in grades 11 and 12. In these cases, please use either option 1 or 3. Students are required to provide their own laptop.
The proctor will need to be approved by Blyth Academy Online and will need to supervise the exam at his or her place of work, or at a public place such as a library. Some libraries and study centers offer this service themselves. Exams cannot be written in anyone's home (including home businesses) nor can it be written in a tutoring/learning centre.
The proctor must be approved by Blyth Academy Online and must be a working professional (e.g. teacher, doctor, businessperson, and must provide a work email address for correspondence (no Gmail, Hotmail, etc.). Please note that the final exam cannot be proctored by a family member or by a tutor.
Blyth Academy Online reserves the right to send a member of its administration team without any prior notification to inspect the exam writing conditions for those arranged with a private proctor. Academic penalties will be applied where exam regulations are not being upheld.
Once inside the exam scheduling interface, please click Login/Create Account. Select Arranging My Own Proctor and proceed to schedule your exam.
