Tryout/laptop check for a digital exam on-campus on your own laptop
The tryout is a way to test if the Schoolyear software works on your laptop. The software is installed as a part of the tryout. If you are able to do the tryout successfully, then your laptop is ready for the real exam. Further instructions will be available in the exam room.
You can open Schoolyear as part of the tryout two times per week.
If you run into problems doing the tryout we have a diagnostic tool available to help you investigate issues with your laptop. You can download it here. Install the tool and follow the instructions.
