Examinations and additional examination opportunities

Examinations will take place on campus again (online or not), without restrictions on group size.

Because of COVID-19 measures we guarantee that every student has two opportunities to take an exam in the first semester of the academic year 2021-2022. 

It is therefore possible that an additional examination opportunity has to be organised for students who have missed an earlier opportunity due to COVID-19 measures. Students who miss an examination opportunity due to COVID-19 measures, do need to report their absence to the lecturer before the examination in question. In order to prevent that offering additional examination opportunities increases the workload of lecturers, there is also the option of A) fully online examination or B) hybrid examination. See this page.

In case of emergency, the method of examination can be changed by the lecturer no later than five working days before the examination (for example from on-campus to online via Brightspace). The term for such emergencies has been included in the new model for the Rules and Regulations of the Board of Examiners. In such cases, the lecturer informs the Programme Board, coordinator of studies and education administration office.

Twenty working days preparation time online examination

If you choose to organise online examination in Remindo via ECOLe, you must always inform ECOLe no later than twenty working days in advance. In case of emergency, it can be discussed with ECOLe whether the online examination can be organised within a shorter period of time. In such cases, ECOLe will assess whether this is feasible.

Online proctoring is used as a last resort, after all other alternative forms of examination (for example, open book examination via Brightspace) have been considered.
