I'd call her in the office and leave her a voice message, just in case.

Even if she has left town and you will too, you still might be able to negotiate an incomplete grade.

I hope you get lucky, and can retake the exam. I know for my part, my college is rather draconian and won't let me retake exams without a valid excuse (sickness, death of a family member, etc...). Basicly, they taught me to always be sure about the exams dates, so far, i've never missed one.

Entropy, I am extremely proud of you. Telling your dad was very courageous, and was probably the main fear you had to face, because fathers are our main source of approval in life. Good work! I think it will all be ok now, whatever happens. If you could face your dad, you can face anyone and anything. You are now becoming your own man. Congratulations and Merry Xmas.

And I'll bet your dad is proud of you too - I know I was proud of my son when he faced up to me.

yeah, your dad is probably proud of you. He's still gonna kick your butt, but proudly.

The very same thing nearly happened to me two weeks ago in my "Numerical methods in Scientific Computation" class during finals. I don't go to class very often, i find that when i don't go to class i get guilty and end up reading the book and studying alot harder because i always think i don't know enough (it works, i get good grades).
Anyway, i thought the exam was from 5:30-7:30. It was around 4:45 and i was at home doing the practice exam and suddenly for some reason i decided to double check when and where the exam was. I found out it was actually from 3:30-5:30, so i go out the door and drive to campus as fast as i can, i had to park in the parking lot, which is a little way off, and run to the correct building. As i was running i dropped all of my new 5 pencils that i had just recently bought, when i realized this i went back to find one, which i did, and continued on my way. I made it to class at exactly 5:00, i could barely breathe (running like that in that cold air), but at least i had 30 minutes left. I cruised through the exam at remarkable speed, finished all the questions in time and left the room quite confident that i had gotten A, which i did. :smile:

I had to run to a history exam not to be late in the cold,man that cold air makes your lungs burn like their on fire. I was gasping for breath as I sat there before the exam. It really hurt. :-( (run= a longgggggggggggggggggg distance...enigma knows about running from lot 9 all the way to Key)

I was late for one of my physics finals, so I parked my car right in front of the doors to my class. I got a ticket, but finished the test before they could get a tow truck to tow it.

Am I the only one who's still waiting patiently to find out what happened? C'mon, Entropy, I wanna hear the rest of this. Did you finally get in touch with your prof?

I think you should carry out the plan so that your parents don't get mad at you. It seems like a good option for a slacker

Wow, that was over 3 years ago.

Note that this thread is over three years old. :biggrin:

It isn't too late to admit that you should have never been conceived and make up for your parents failure to use contraception.

He never did tell us how things turned out. I guess we were to imply it from other posts he made in other threads. His last post on PF:

Entropy said:
Speaking of jobs, I had my first day of work to day pushing shopping carts at Target. They basicly lied right to my face saying it was an easy job. I just talked to someone today that had my position for over a year and said it was easily the hardest job their. The managers just lie to new people so they'll take the job. Sigh... My legs are so sore right now...
I guess that will be a lesson to anyone that might think of missing an exam.

No. But I think even if he has missed an exam all but the most diabolical and evil person will have given him a make up test? It's not like he waltzed into the exam sat down, burnt his paper, then flipped the bird to the moderator and said "screw you guys I'm going home."

I must say though it's a cliff hanger. :smile:

3 years though, I mean come on, what happened? :tongue:

Is my university unusual in that the Final exam dates are set, by the university, at the beginning of the semester and it is against the rules to change it. The date and time of the final is included in the syllabus handed out on the first day of classes, and available on the course website. Once that has been given, the only way to change it, is if the prof gets written agreement to a new date/time from every student registered in the course.

It seems to me to be a touch ridiculous to announce the final exam date during the last week of classes, especially if it were outside of the "official" schedule. There is always a chance of conflicts.

Just missed my Calc exam because I got the wrong date. Instead of going by the university block schedule for exams my teacher set her own time, which isn't illegal. But since I didn't go to class for the last week (which was just review) I was unaware of this. Now unless my teacher is willing to overlook my stupidity I will fail the class. Right now I'm waiting for her to email be back. I really want to kill myself right now, because if I don't I know my parents will when they find out.
I still have dreams about such situations as you have mentioned or shall I call them nightmares - I have been out of school for 2 years now. However - It has never happened to me and I've managed to achieve exactly what I wanted for the undergraduate studies. Trust me on this ... be practical , your grades ( unless you are a math major ) are rarely going to matter either in industry or whether you enroll in graduate school , and your dilemna should be easily resolved by continuously corresponding with your teacher as well as your advisors. I have a perfect grade point average in all three calculus courses as well as differential equations and it has not mattered one bit.
