FAQ about Exam

The duration of an exam?

Note that the duration of an exam is not defined in Examination and Assessment Instruction, but the duration must be appropriate for the type of the examination assignments. The duration of an exam can be shorter than 4 h - this enables more students to take exams in the e-exam rooms during the same day.
