Examination Numbers

Each semester, students are assigned an exam number. All examinations at the Law School, including take-home examinations, are given on an anonymous basis. The Registrar's Office will assign all students a 4-digit exam number each semester. Exam numbers will be released through the Student Link. The Graduate Tax Program will send out an e-mail to students when their exam numbers are available on the Student Link. Students may locate their exam (or "blue book") number by clicking the Academics Tab and choosing the grades option. Select the grade report for the semester and be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page. (Exam numbers appear to the left of where the grade will appear.) Please note that the Final Exam option on the Student Link does not apply to law students.

You must bring your BU ID and your exam number with you to each of your exams. Prior to beginning an in-class examination, you will be asked to complete a 3x5 exam card and return it to the proctor. In addition, you will be required to write your exam number instead of your name on all of your exam materials: the exam itself, scantron sheet, and blue books (if applicable). (For ExamSoft users, your exam number should automatically pre-fill in the ID field when you open your exam file in SofTest.).
