Form of the Examinations
Form of the examinations varies depending on each course. Some of the examinations may not be held within the Examination Period.
About Semester-End Examination will be announced on keio.jp news.
Semester-end examinations are held at the end of each half semester or semester. Refer to the academic calendar for the examination period.
Examinations may not be held on the same day, period and time as the corresponding classes. Therefore, students must confirm the Examination timetable carefully.
Students can check their Semester-end Examination Timetable at SFC on keio.jp after the examination timetable is announced.
Students need to contact the academic affairs office at least one month in advance if they have any requests to take examinations for some reasons like health problems.
Students who missed the examination for a course, due to illness or other unavoidable reasons, may be eligible to take the makeup examination. Please check the schedule. The application period and procedures will be announced on keio.jp. Makeup examinations will not be given for courses where examinations are held outside of the regular examination period, or where examinations are graded based on reports or class participation marks.
The same strict policy as adopted with regard to academic misconduct in examinations also applies to the preparation of papers, and any infringement will be severely punished. In the case of term papers, academic misconduct may result in a D grade being assigned to all courses taken in the semester in question. Similarly severe punishment may be enforced for any type of paper.

Before starting work on your paper, be sure that you understand exactly what is required and the intention of the assignment.
