Online oral exams
Spring 2021 ordinary exams and re-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.
Can I book a room for my online exam at ITU?
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.
Can I refuse to show the room I'm located in to the examiners?
Do I need to show ID?
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.
Do I have to have the camera on?
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.
How do I guard my privacy?
We recommend that you select a virtual background in Zoom. See tutorial. You can use this background of ITU, if you want.
Is it ok to record the Zoom meeting?
What do I do if my flatmate, kids or the like disturb during the exam?
How to share my presentation in Zoom?
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.
Group exam: Can we be in the same room during the exam?
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.
