Professor Never Responded to my Email. Help?

edited September 2014 in College Life
So like maybe a week or so ago, I sent my French professor an email to ask if my modified testing/exam time was OK with her.

I sent a second maybe a few days ago and a third yesterday, but no response!!!

I cannot test with the rest of my class because I have a learning disability, and therefore have to test at my school's Office of Accessibility.

I sent an email to my professor about the testing time because the Office said to do so, since my extended time from my learning disability would not fit in with my schedule. I have a class after French!!!

Also, my professor said she'd email my class and I a more detailed list of topics that will be on the exam, which I never got either.

I checked my email multiple times for her name and regularly for any mail & no sign of her!!!!

I AM going to study my notes and NOT wait for her content wise, but what should I do about my exam time??? This test is on Monday!!!!

    Visit your prof during office hours if you can.

    Things to think about:

    Have you confirmed the correct address? Students often send mail to me, but they mess up the address somehow.

    Does your return address clearly indicate who you are? Some professors object to receiving email from honeytaco123.

    Does your subject line say something meaningful? Readers may get confused by an empty subject line, for instance.

    Does your email message clearly identify you and class number?

    (I'm out of ideas, so there is no need to tag me with answers.)

    Did you use your college email? My daughter's profs are ONLY allowed to respond to her .edu email.

    Study for the exam. On monday, go to the prof's office or the dept office, show them your emails. Go to the alternative place to take the test as you suggested. That's all you can do.
