The sequence of examinations is:
It is not possible to calculate the exact examination time from the placement in the sequence, since students earlier on the list may not show up. Thus, students are expected to show up plenty early. In principle, all students who are taking the exam on a particular date are supposed to show up when the examination starts, i.e., at the time the first student is scheduled. This is partly because of the way external examiners are paid, which is by the number of students who show up for examination. Slots late in the day could shift to earlier calculated times by hours. Thus, show up early. Of course, you never have to show up before the starting time of the exam on a given day.
The following is the normal procedure for the exam:
First, the student draws a question from the list of exam questions. The examination starts immediately after, i.e., there is no preparation time. The student may give a presentation of a duration of approximately 10-15 minutes. After this, questions will asked in relation to the question which was drawn as well as the rest of the curriculum. The student may bring a list of about 10 keywords in order to remember which topics to cover. The exam form is discussion-oriented using the blackboard. Students are not allowed to bring their own transparencies, computer presentations, or similar. The total examination time will usually be approximately 25 minutes. See the curriculum for details regarding what may come up at the exam.
