Reviewing Your Exams

One of the best ways to grow and be involved in your own learning is to review your assignements and exams after they have been graded. From detailed comments to a simple mark of correction, that feedback is valuable. 

We encourage every IU High School student to review their graded work - especially when it comes to exams. You have the right to review your proctored exams under the supervision of a proctor, and doing so will help you decide how to study for upcoming assignments as well as help you identify concepts that you may wish to study in more depth.

When reviewing an exam, a supervisor will sit with you for one 30 minute session. During these 30 minutes, you may take notes on your performance to help you focus your study, but you may not copy questions. You will not be allowed to take the exam out of the room, take photos, or copy the exam in any way. Use this time to note where you did well and where you might improve. The session will last no longer than 30 minutes. Then take those notes and use them to study for a retake (of the first proctored exam only) or for future work and reference. 

To schedule an exam review, email our Exams Coordinator at with the following information:

  • Your first and last name
  • the full name of the course
  • the name of the exam
  • proctor information
    • the proctor's first and last name
    • the proctor's place of work
    • the proctor's position title
    • the proctor's email
    • the proctor's phone number

When we receive this information, we will send an email confirming the request and instructions for review. 

Retake guidelines (first exam in the course) #

If you decide to request a retake after completing your first exam, please keep the following in mind:

  • You should request the retake from the IUHS exams department within 30 days of your exam grade being posted. The sooner you retake the exam, the more fresh the material will be.

  • You must retake the first exam before you complete the course and take the final exam.

Retake guidelines (subsequent exams) #

In order to retake exams subsequent to the first, you have to send an appeal to the IUHS principal that describes the extenuating circumstances which you believe warrant the retake and that provides supporting documentation (e.g., statement from a physician, school official, or exam supervisor). Send your appeal to
