Durham University says all exams in the 2020/21 academic year will be online
The format will be similar to the 2020 exams
Durham University announced today that all exams for the academic year 2020/21 will be online, with no physical exams taking place.
The university said that it has made this decision well in advance of Easter Term in order to the avoid last-minute changes, as seen in the 2019/20 exam season.
Students will have a 24-hour window to complete an exam following the question paper being released, however there may be some variation within individual departments. These will be confirmed before Easter Term begins.
Similar Safety Net measures will also be implemented, ensuring that departments take the whole year of work into account if a mark is particularly out of line with a student’s performance in other years. The Serious Adverse Circumstances system will also mean that students who experience exceptional circumstances during the exam period will not be negatively impacted.
More updates are expected to follow throughout Epiphany Term.
Some students reported studying for 10 hours daily
