Handling Cases of Overlapping Examination Times (Overlapping Examinations)
The semester-end examinations timetable is different to the standard class timetable. There are cases when the examinations for two courses a student has registered for are set during the same time period on the same day, or the timing of the examinations held at Hiyoshi and another campus overlap. Students should check the semester-end examinations timetable as quickly as possible and, following the instructions stated below, carry out the necessary procedures when there is an overlap in examination times.
It is possible to take either "Overlapping Examinations (※refer below)" or a "Makeup Examination." In either case, students will need to apply in advance. Because the makeup examinations do not take place until the middle of February, and the fact that no second makeup examinations will be held even for students unable to attend due to illness or train delays, etc., it is recommended that students apply for "Overlapping Examinations."

In reference to the table below, please take one of the examinations at either campus as a makeup examination.

Important Notes for Semester-end Examinations
1. To ensure that no one commits acts of academic misconduct, or any acts that may be mistakenly construed as misconduct, students should approach examinations with an appropriate attitude and mindset.
2. Any act of academic misconduct related to the semester-end examinations, in-class examinations, assignments and short quizzes given during classes will be dealt with severely under Article 188 of the Undergraduate Rules and Regulations and the Regulations of the Faculty of Economics.
3. Academic misconduct includes acts of cheating in examinations, writing (or asking someone to write) answer sheets on someone's（or the student's）behalf, taking examination papers home, and intentionally disobeying the instructions of the examination proctors.
When attending an examination, avoid any misleading behavior that could be mistakenly construed as an act of academic misconduct.
4. In addition, the following actions in assignments are considered instances of academic misconduct: acts of writing （or asking someone to write） on someone's （or the student's) behalf, plagiarism （copying and pasting without indicating sources）, manipulation and fabrication of data and any similar deeds.
Plagiarism in written assignments and theses is considered an act of academic misconduct. Using others' opinions and writings without indicating the reference will be considered fraudulent, even if the act of plagiarism is not intentional. This is considered to be the equivalent of cheating in semester-end and in-class examinations or an even more serious offence, and the student will be subject to disciplinary action.
(Precautions for writing assignments and theses)
Along with the semester-end examinations and in-class examinations, written assignments （including graduation theses）are important proof of your accomplishments at university. Disregard for the rules for written assignments and theses may lead to disqualification or disciplinary action if judged to have been an act of academic misconduct.
Any references made from particular sources must be clearly distinguished from your own viewpoints and properly cited. It will be deemed an act of plagiarism if you ignore this.
The most important points with regard to writing papers are as follows:
1. Clearly distinguish your own opinions from that of others.
2. Clearly indicate the references for quotations or when referring to or citing works of others（failure to indicate a reference is considered to be an act of plagiarism）.
3. For quotations, write every single word including typographical errors.
4. Follow the rules for citations （refer to the literature below）.
5. When referring to information from the Internet, clearly indicate the URL, the title of the web page, and the date when you accessed the page.
Please try to learn the generally accepted methods for using citations from the Course Registration Guide.
Student ID Cards
Each time period, the attendance of examinees will be taken.
An attendance sheet will be handed out to all students, starting from the front row. Please fill out the necessary details and pass it to the person seated behind you.
Please bring sanitizing wipes with you if you are concerned about hand hygiene.
