Note: Only courses involved

This information only relates to those courses that are also taken by at least one of the students participating in the planned exam. Other courses are, after all, not affected by the exam.






Conflicting courses


If you wish to see more detailed information on a period, select the desired period and click on the 'Conflicting courses' button to open a window of the same name. This will display which courses and which students are affected by the exam.




Tip: At least one exam course

Exams are usually held when affected exam courses (or at least some of them) take place since this involves no timetable changes for the students and they will automatically have the time available. Furthermore, (at least) one teacher and a room are certain to be available for the exam.



Once you have found a suitable time and date you can create the exam with the data displayed using the <Transfer Exam> button and then edit the information in the ' Exams' window.
