Twice a week classes are a thing. With one day in between, it could easily be a Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday class. Some professors give you the day before the final off to study, or maybe something happened and they thought they just missed class and actually missed the final. If finals are happening the last week of school, it's not entirely strange if they assumed their final was on Thursday when it was actually on Tuesday. Whether or not this qualifies for a re-take depends on the professor, but this seems like a believable fuck-up to me.
That happened to me in college once - a day late to the final. I immediately contacted the teacher and explained what happened. They let me take the same final with another class. Do not wait! Contact your teacher.
Isn't the point of a test to demonstrate what you learned? Why would you not be allowed to demonstrate what you learned during the course just because you missad a date?
Many times for higher up courses, professors make only one final and all sections take it at the same time. If you're a day late, the professor can't be sure that they're testing your knowledge since a classmate who took the class may have given answers. Usually, if you're late to a final, you won't be allowed in if a person has already left. It's for this reason. There's really no reason to miss a final due to a date screwup so no real sympathy here.
