Absences If you miss an exam or a laboratory section, you will not be allowed to retake or redo the assignment unless you can prove that you had a valid reason for your absence. A valid reason would be a documented illness, death in your family, a car accident on the way to class (please don't run into a tree on your way to school to postpone an exam), or some similar emergency that you are able to document (photos of the car after the wreck will be posted on the web page). Invalid reasons would include breaking up with your girlfriend/boyfriend, an unmissable curling match, a bad hair day, I think you get the picture
