Miss a final? Professors deal in different ways

As finals arrive, students may dream about missing or mixing up the dates for their exams. Should they find their nightmare become a reality, their professors may — or may not — get them out of the situation.

I don’t have a problem in my smaller seminar classes either. These are usually taken by students who want to be there, so they are responsible.” [/tab][/tabgroup]
