Exams on campus

All exams are on-campus again (except for students in a distance learning program). Some exams will be on paper while others will be in a digital form. For a digital exam on-campus you need to bring your laptop to the exam room, except when the exam is in a PC room (the room code starts with PC). Your teacher will inform you whether or not you need to bring your laptop.

These pages will explain how a digital exam on campus works.  (Click here for a video on taking an exam with fraud prevention)

  1. Make yourself familiar with the rules on on-campus digital exams
  2. Check if your laptop is prepared
  3. Train yourself in how to take a digital exam by doing the try-out
  4. When you have to take the exam follow the login instructions.
  5. There are special facilities available in Ans for students with a disability, click this video for a short overview.

More information on digital exams on campus

There are different options available for taking a digital exam on-campus. Your teacher will explain how your exam will look. When your exam is in a PC room you will likely not need your own laptop. Depending on the exam type offered in the PC room you will receive login instructions from your teacher.

For other exams you have to bring your laptop to be able to take the exam. When you start an Ans exam on your laptop a fraud prevention application will be started, which prevents you from using other software or communicating with other students. If the program is not installed yet, the option to install it will be offered in the startup process of the exam. This is why you should be in the exam room at least 15 minutes early so you can get everything ready to start.

If your laptop is not working at the start of the exam, please know that there are other possibilities to make your exam. For instance, you can get a spare WUR laptop or a paper copy of the exam. Consult the invigilator for these options (Click here to read more about how to arrange a spare laptop).

Problems during the exam

If you encounter problems with your laptop during the exam the invigilator ('surveillant') can contact WUR digital examination support for assistance.

If your laptop crashes there are spare laptops available which allow you to continue your exam. For a proper administration of the spares you need to bring your WUR-card and a valid ID card to the exam.

It is important to know that even if an error occurs, all your given answers and changes to your exam will be saved regularly.
