  • The only object students are allowed to take with is their identity card or passport that is placed on the desk facing the roof next to the exam computer.
  • The examination room is equipped with a surveillance system. The recordings are used to identify the examinee and investigate possible foul play.

If your exam is interrupted abruptly by a third party event (power cut, fire alarm or other) contact your course teacher. You can find his/her contact information through the staff search on the SAMK website.
