Examination Numbers

All examinations at the Law School, including take-home examinations are given on an anonymous basis. The Registrar's Office will assign all JD students a 4-digit exam number each semester. Exam numbers will be released through 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 are to bring your BU ID and your exam number with you to all exams. You will record your exam number on the printed exam questions, the 3x5 examination card, and on any scantron sheets and blue books that you use. You will be asked to complete the 3x5 card and return it to the proctor before the start of every in-class examination. At the time you pick-up a take-home examination, you will complete the 3x5 card and leave it with the Registrar’s Office.
