2) The date and time of the exams to be held in the UNIKA exam system are determined by the relevant departments/programs and the exam schedules are defined by the units to be announced on the student automation (OBS), unit web pages and UNIKA exam system.

3) Students can access the exams using the UNIKA software for mobile devices, tablets and computers that they will use in the exams on the UNIKA system. In the multiple-choice exams to be held in the UNIKA exam system, all students will enter from the applications prepared for the online exams. UNIKA online exam applications can be found on the Exam Center web page. Students who have problems with exams, cannot log in to applications or do not have a mobile device, tablet or computer, can apply to their own academic units and take their exams in computer laboratories.

4) In supervised exams, in case of problems encountered during the exam, the situation should be reported to the supervisor by the student and an exam report should be filled in by the supervisor. Make-up exams can only be given to students who are stated in the exam reports filled in during the exam.

5) The authority to allow the use of paper, pencil, etc. materials for calculations in the multiple-choice exams to be held in the UNIKA exam system belongs to the concerned lecturer.

6) Students can take exams with any device that has UNIKA exam system applications installed. Students are responsible for the devices and their battery status during the exam. Students who will take the exam should keep their devices ready so that they will not have any problems during the exam. Make-up exams will not be given for students who will have problems during the exam due to this reason.

7) Students are required to have ONLY the device they will use for taking the exam when they come to the exams to be held in the UNIKA exam system.

8) Although it is possible for students to use the internet infrastructure provided by our university during the exam, it should be taken into consideration that internet connection may not be provided in every exam hall and there may be problems in accessing the internet due to the intensity of use in places where internet connection is available. It is recommended that students have a mobile internet connection on their devices to participate in the exams.

9) In multiple-choice exams held with the UNIKA exam system, students are required to take the exam at the exam start time, and students who start the exam late (who arrive within the first 15 minutes) will not be given additional time. Students must be present at the entrance of the exam hall with their student IDs and identity cards/IDs/passports at least 15 minutes before the exam start time specified in the exam schedule. While taking the exams, their IDs will be compared with the information on the exam screen, and students with incorrect information or those who do not have their IDs with them will not be admitted to the exam. Students who perform any of the actions of taking the exam on behalf of another student or having someone else take the exam instead of himself/herself will be processed within the scope of the Higher Education Institutions Student Disciplinary Regulations.

10) Students are admitted to the exam hall within the first 15 minutes following the exam start time specified in the program. Students who are taken to the exam hall within the first 15 minutes are allowed to take the exam, but students who come to the exam hall after this period cannot attend the exam. The head of the hall and the examiners in the examination hall are not authorized to allow a student to take the exam.

11) During exam entrance, student information, exam information and a QR code that will provide the exam access permission will be displayed on the UNIKA exam system screens of the students. Students can access the exam with the approval of the exam inspector with this QR code on the UNIKA exam system screen. Except for unsupervised exams, students cannot access the exam screen without the approval of the supervisor. After starting the exam, students who leave the exam screen need to be approved by the exam invigilators again in order to access the exam.

17) Students who, for any reason, cannot see their exam on the UNIKA exam system screen despite being in the exam room specified in the exam program, should inform the unit/departmental exam supervisors at the faculty/school/vocational school before the exam and request that the situation be checked. If there is no exam on the screen, although the exam is defined for others at the given time, the relevant student will not be admitted to the exam. The necessary checks are made later for the students in this situation and the academic units have the authority to organize make-up exams for these students.
