    • What constitutes a conflict?
      • Two  exams starting at the SAME time on the SAME day;
      • Two  exams STARTING within 23 hours (i.e. A 9:00 a.m. exam on Thursday followed by  a 1:30 PM exam on Thursday or a 1:30 PM exam on Thursday followed by a 9:00 AM  exam on Friday.) Note that having a 1:30 PM exam on consecutive days (i.e. Thursday & Friday)  is NOT by itself a conflict.
