All Durham University exams replaced with online assessments
It is still unclear how practical exams will be assessed
Durham University announced this morning that it has taken the decision to move all exams online.
In an email sent to students this morning from Professor Alan Houston it was detailed that “to protect the health and wellbeing of our staff students and wider community, we have decided to replace all currently scheduled examinations with online assessments”.
It was anticipated by many students that following in the footsteps of other universities, in the wake of the current pandemic that exams would be cancelled.
Most exams will be available 48 hours before submission but it is detailed in the email that the University does not expect any take-home exams to require more than two or three hours to complete.
Exam dates have not been changed but have been replaced with a “submission schedule” meaning you now submit your assessment online on the same day you would have had your exam.
It is still not clear how fieldwork or practical exams will be dealt with.
We will bring you more on this story as we have it.
