Exams may be conducted as video conference exams if the examiner, the student and the external examiner cannot be present in the same place at the time of the exam. However, the student(s) and all examiners must agree on conducting the exam online/by video conferencing. It is not necessary to obtain approval from SAP, but feel free to contact us with any questions.
All forms of oral exams can be held as video conference exams, and the general rules and regulations about exams at ITU also apply to video conference exams.
Current situationDue to the current lockdown of ITU, all re-exams with an oral component (B- and D-exams) will be held as video conference exams.
- You must agree on having a video conference exam with the examiner in reasonable time before
- Make sure to agree with the examiner which video conference programme you wish to
communicate by (e.g. Zoom, Skype, MS Teams).
- Make sure that you have a camera on your laptop
- In due time before the exam, you must agree with the examiner on what to do in case of any technical problems (it is a good idea to exchange telephone numbers with the examiner).
- You must show photo-ID at the beginning of the exam if the examiner asks for this.
- You must be able to prove that you are alone at the video conference exam if the examiners ask
you to do so.
- If something prevents the exam at the given time (e.g. technical issues with Zoom), you should try again a little later on the same day.
- If it is not possible to conduct the exam on the same day, a new date and time is agreed upon immediately.
- Make sure to describe and document what happened
