Exam Information

Here are several important reminders to keep in mind regarding administration of final exams.  Please read this information carefully, as you are responsible for being aware of all important exam-related information.

All LLM students should report to the exam room a half-hour prior to the beginning of the exam. A student who is granted exam relief should report to the appropriate room on their make-up date. When there are multiple exams in a room, seating instructions will be posted on the door of the exam room. Students must sit in the assigned section of the room.

LLM students who do not qualify for extra time should report to the JD room assignment at the JD time.

Please note:  You MAY NOT discuss your exam with each other or any other students following the exam.  There are students who may take an exam later and they should not share information or thoughts on the exam until grades are released.

Where to Go

Room assignments are posted to the web a few days at a time.

When to Arrive

You must arrive to the exam room at least 30 minutes before (or 9:00AM for most (BUT NOT ALL LLM exams-- check room assignments above).  Those using Examplify must have downloaded the exam file in Examplify prior to the exam day. If you are using Examplify, you should not leave the room without receiving confirmation that your exam file uploaded properly. If you are having difficulty uploading your exam, you should seek assistance from Systems & Technology staff in the room.

You should arrive early to ensure you have sufficient time to complete administrative details and receive proctor instructions.  The exam will begin promptly at the scheduled time - proctors will not delay the start for late students.

If you arrive late, you MAY NOT be allowed to take the exam.

Please bring your BU ID card with you, since you'll need to write your BU ID number on your exam cards. Your exam card is the only place that you will record your name and BU ID number. You should also bring your unique exam number (accessible from the Student Link) to each exam. You must write this four-digit number on all the exam materials (exam card, exam questions, scantron sheet, and blue book, if applicable.)

Please note: LLM in American Law and Intellectual Property & Information Law students receive an extra hour on JD exams, beyond the JD time limit, with the following exception, as stated in our academic regulations (Article IV Examinations): Students whose native language is not English and whose prior education has been in another language qualify for additional time during mid-term and final examinations only for JD exams that are under five hours in length. Students who are native English speakers or have had two or more years of graduate education in English do not qualify for additional time. No student gets additional time for any exam conducted over five hours. Upon matriculation, the Office of Graduate and International Programs will determine whether students qualify for additional time and will notify students of their qualification prior to the mid-term and final examination periods. There shall be no additional time given for take home exams that are more than five hours in length.
