Dates for examinations arranged by the registrar's office are tentative, and they have a disclaimer on their website that indicates the tentative nature of the dates.

They advise that students should never book other committments such as flights, job interviews, and the like, at any time during the final examination period, because the exam schedule can change.

They also advise to check with the registrar's website regularly, to keep up-to-date on such changes.

Check registrar's website periodically for any revisions to the time of the final exam. Note the disclaimer on registrar's website that indicates tentative exam schedules. Students should never plan travel or other committments at any time during the exam period because exam schedules are subject to change in order to accomodate possible conflicts.
