Exam dates delayed due to snowstorm


Announcement from UC3M Vice-Rectorate of Studies on January 8, 2021.

In view of the weather situation caused by the Filomena storm, the university has decided to postpone the exams scheduled for Monday 11 to Thursday 28 January and those for Tuesday 12 to Friday 29 January, at the same schedule. Furthermore, due to the low temperatures forecast for next week, the university's heating systems (in parallel to the mechanical ventilation) are already in operation in order to guarantee comfortable conditions during the exam period.

In accordance with the provisions of the teaching model approved by the Governing Council (Agreement of June 15, 2020), the final exams will be held in person, given that the Community of Madrid has not established any restrictions for face-to-face university activities. To this end, the university has established a set of measures to ensure a safe environment, in particular, the reduction of classroom capacity and the mandatory use of facemasks.

In addition, faculty have a protocol with specific measures for conducting the face-to-face exams.

On the other hand, a procedure has been established for application (information in the Virtual Secretary of the school)  of online exams or to postpone them to those students who cannot attend in person because they are in isolation for positive COVID or for close contact with a positive, and they have notified and accredited it properly (20th FAQ, A safe return).
