Basically , in my business studies degree, the first exams i have are two accounting ones. Tomorrow. One is a written exam and one is a online exam, Both count towards 15% of the total module mark for the year, thus they are equally important.
The tutor has stated that we have a little more than enough time for both. This means, with the online exam, it seems easy to just have your book set up next to you, any revision notes.. especially if you have revision notes typed up you can just search for specific information, same with using google. There is no way they can stop us..
I have even thought (i cba to set this up, so i wont do it, but you could) about getting a group of people, maybe just one other person or two,and take it in turns doing the exam, different questions probably will appear but it means you get all the help from those.
The exam is easy for me as i've done accounting before so its not like it makes a big difference and im not going to complain about it .
But , I just dont see how the university can let this happen, does this happen during later years? I kind of hope it doesnt.
One of my first exams is online .. Watch

ok, I've never heard of a 'university' doing an online exam before... you say the exam is worth a certain percentage of a module, but does the module actually count towards your degree?

We had some online exams (or quizzes as they got called!) that went towards our marks for psychology in 1st and I think 2nd year as well. I think it's just another/different method of assessment and yes there's absolutely nothing to stop you going on the internet or sitting with friends to do it, just the way it is I guess!

Online? Are you sure it's not on a computer, but without internet access or with restricted access to whatever site is hosting the exam?
