Questions related to digital home exams for full-time students 

The new exam schedule released on Friday 27 March has led to a number of reactions and questions from our students. Most of the inquiries are concerning the exams that were moved to August 2020.

BI’s management recognizes that the changes in the exam schedule has created a difficult situation for some of our students. In light of this, BI’s management team will during the coming week consider the students’ demands, and look at possibilities to see if we may are able to accommodate some of them. The student organisation, BISO, will be included in this work to represent the student’s interests.

BI asks for your patience and understanding in a situation that is difficult for all of us. The corona outbreak has made it impossible to arrange the Spring semester's exams as originally scheduled, resulting in BI having to convert all school exams to digital home examinations.

BI will reach a conclusion before Easter.
