Electronic Exam Room

An electronic exam type called “examination aquarium” has spread during the last couple of years amongst Finnish Universities and Universities of applied science. Exams are taken in specific exam rooms (i.e. examination aquariums) equipped with recording video surveillance. Students can take their exam whenever they want to inside the predefined exam period. All universities are using the same system called EXAM, which is developed by a consortium of universities with the support from the Finnish IT Centre for Science - CSC. A common system makes national co-operation possible. This year we are starting joint exams and enabling the shared use of exam rooms, providing more flexibility for the students and reducing administrative work.
