Electronic exams in Tampere University in the exceptional circumstances
Students are required to wear a face mask in the EXAM facilities. Face masks are available in the EXAM facilities.
To limit the time students spend in the EXAM facilities, the duration of electronic exams is restricted to no more than two hours. This restriction will remain in force until 31 July 2021.
Due to the safety instructions (1.12.2020), the number of EXAM computers in the facilities is limited to no more than 10. The number of computers in use varies from five to ten depending on the size of the facility.
As a rule, EXAM facilities are open followingly:

Please note that there can be exceptions in the opening hours.
Students with a higher risk and exams with extra time
Students, who have been granted extra time for completing an electronic exam and the duration of the exam exceeds two hours, must reserve a time slot in one of the accessible exam rooms (PC201, Hervanta or A026, City centre). Students who are (or whose family members are) at a high risk for severe illness from COVID-19, or students who cannot wear a face mask due to medical reasons may also use the accessible exam rooms when attending electronic examinations. In the accessible exam rooms, wearing a face mask is not required, and the exam duration may be longer than two hours, because there is only one person in the room at a time. Other hygiene instructions must be followed.
Students at higher risk cannot be required to attend an electronic exam on campus. These students must be offered an alternative to completing an electronic exam on campus (such as an online exam). However, students are not allowed to request an alternative mode of completion based on their self-reported high-risk status on a case-by-case basis (for example, attending lectures on campus but still requesting an alternative mode for completing an electronic exam is not permitted). Students with a higher risk will not be required to present a request for special arrangements or other certificate as we will trust their own judgement.
