Information about the oral exams
We conduct the oral exams between July 22nd, 2020, and July 31st, 2020. We will enable the registration for the oral exams this week (likely today); you will be able to register for the oral exams until July 15th, 2020.
The last assignment is due Thursday, July 16th, 2020, and some students may need the points of this assignment to pass the examination requirements. Those students also must register until July 15th, 2020. The examination office will _automatically_ unregister every student that did not pass the examination requirement.
Oral exams will be conducted virtually and will take approximately 30 minutes. Each student will get a calendar invitation for the exam slot.
If you register early (i.e., in this or the next week), you might receive your slot before the registration deadline; otherwise, you will receive it shortly after the registration period. Due to the high number of oral exams, slot changes are not allowed except for the following reasons:
1) Due to your timezone, the scheduled oral exam would take place before 8 a.m. or after 8 p.m.
2)You have an exam that _overlaps_ with the scheduled exam. Notably, this rule is not affected by another exam on the same day which does not overlap with our exam.
3) You have a medical certificate.
4) There are unforeseen and _important_ circumstances that _termporarily_ do not allow you to participate in the exam.
In any of such cases, we expect you to write us an email with _detailed_ information on why we should change your examination slot until three days before your examination. The decision on whether we provide you with a new slot lies on our end.
Finally, you will have to provide us with your written consent that we are allowed to conduct the exam virtually. If you registered for the exam and we do not receive your written consent before 8 a.m. on the day of your exam, you will automatically fail the exam—we will make a blank form available during this week in a separate news post. This post will also include additional information about how to send the form to us.
