The University has now updated its contingency arrangements for in-person exams in Trinity term.
Where courses have already been given permission to restart in-person teaching in Trinity term, it has been confirmed that remaining in-person exams will continue to take place in-person (unless there are any changes to the Government’s plans for easing restrictions).
Where courses have not yet been given permission to restart in-person teaching, a final decision about the format of exams will be taken after the Government update about student return, which is expected around Easter. If students on these courses are permitted to return, exams will remain in-person (again subject to the Government’s plans for easing restrictions). If not, exams may need to be moved to an online closed-book format, with remote invigilation in place.
The examinations timetables page on the Oxford Students website has now been updated to reflect the latest situation. These arrangements will be kept under review in line with the Government guidance, and all in-person exams will take place with the existing range of Covid-safe measures in place. Students have been made aware of the latest situation via the Student News.
