An original KÖZGAZDÁSZ ONLINE post.
The unique distance education affects the end-term exams at Corvinus University. Based on the latest provisions of the Presidential Committee we have collected all the information you need to know about the exams and the thesis submission specifications.
Important information about the spring end-term exams
How will the exams be conducted?
Both oral and written examinations will be held online. The offered grades can be confirmed in Neptun as before.
What platform will be used?
According to the Presidential Committee provisions the written exams will be conducted on Moodle, the orals on Microsoft Teams.
When and where can students sign up for the exams?
Sign-up is on Neptun as before, but this time the exam type (Moodle or Teams) will be displayed next to it, and not the room number.
- for those filling in HALVEL: from May 4 (Bachelor’s from 7.45, Master’s and postgraduate: 13.15) to May 8 (until 11.59)
- Spring end-term exams for those taking final exams: from May 8 (from 12.00) to June 4 (till 23.59)
- Spring end-term exams for those not taking final exams: from May 8 (from 12.00) to June 18 (till 23.59)
When will the dates of the exams be announced?
Exam dates were announced between April 27, 2020 and May 3, 2020.
How will exams be scheduled?
In the case of orals there are two options: students can sign up for a time period and within that time frame the teacher will schedule and inform them about the details, or, there might be time slots and students can sign up for those individually. In the case of written exams 55-minute-long slots can be reserved, for longer exams, several consecutive slots. The reason for the strict scheduling is that the servers can only take 300 - 400 students at a time, and courses with more than 300 students receive priority.
What exam types can we expect?
Relating to orals on Teams the provisions recommend exams in small groups (2-5 people) via video calls. The exams may be recorded by the teacher and the task types should be open book or problem solving. As for the written exams, the testing features of Moodle can be used, or, they make take the form of a written assignment. All this is also subject to the choice of the teacher.
