Equipment requirements

This is what you need for an electronic school examination.


You must bring one laptop (PC or Mac) and a charger to the examination. Hybrid computers (e.g. Surface) may only be used with a complete version of Windows (not RT or 10S). Tablets may not be used. If needed you may bring a wired keyboard or mouse.

The Section for timetabling and exams has a limited amount of laptops available for students to loan. Applications should be sent to no later than five working days before the examination date. The application must contain the course code, date of examination, name and student number.

The machine will be handed out at your examination location on the examination day and must be returned to an invigilator immediately after you have finished the examination.


Please make sure that your computer works with Eduroam and is prepared for an electronic examination. Consider running a virus scan. We recommend that you use the two latest versions of either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, and that you deactivate McAfee if installed.
