COVID-19: Exam FAQ's

Spring 2021

Online oral exams

Even though we have re-opened and restrictions are lifted across society, all exams and re-exams for Spring 2021 will be held online.

At this point you are able to book up until June 30, so booking for an oral exam is possible.

Be aware that campus can be closed down again from day to day, so you need to have a plan B for your online exam.

No. ITU adheres to the national guidelines stating that students must be able to prove that they are alone during the examination if asked to do so by the examiner. This common rule for all students in Denmark aims at ensuring that students do not receive any help during the exam. Once you have showed the room, you can display a background picture to maintain privacy.

Each exam begins with the identity of the student being established. If asked by the examiners, you must show student ID card.

If the date on your student card has expired:
Since you are now able to again come to ITU we expect you to have a valid student card, when sitting for the exam. 

Yes. In order to make the online exam as close to ordinary face-to-face exams as possible, it is mandatory to turn on the camera during the entire exam. The only exception is when you share your screen in Zoom, as this setting does not allow using the camera at the same time.

We recommend that you select a virtual background in Zoom. See tutorial. You can use this background of ITU, if you want.

According to the Examination Order, audio or video recording of an exam is not allowed unless the recordings are part of the examination. In such cases, the University undertakes the recording. The recording must thus not take place if the sole aim is to use the recording in the case of an exam complaint or to reveal cheating.

If you think that there is a risk of being disturbed, we recommend that you find an alternative to your home where there is quiet. 

Please check out the ITU Zoom tutorial where it is explained how to present PowerPoint slides without having a full screen blocking your view and notes.

In light of the recent lifting of the distance requirement it is possible to be located together as a group to the online exams. 

A big concern though is related to a technical issue. It is our experience that the sound can be difficult to handle with several microphones at play.
