Exam "sessions" are the actual exam periods within an academic term.  Exam sessions must be defined to inform the system of the specific exam types and exam dates being offered per term.  Exam sessions are defined within a term record.  The association of the exam session with the term provides the system with knowledge of the term, term type, and campuses for the exam sessions.  Multiple exam sessions may be created within a term as needed.


Once an actual exam session is created, corresponding exam meetings can be generated and meeting times can be applied.
