BI Norwegian Business School switches to home exams until January

All school exams at BI Norwegian Business School from December 7 to January 7 will be carried out as digital home exams due to the corona situation.

BI Norwegian Business School announced the news on Saturday, according to the newspaper VG.

“Based on the increasing infection, as well as uncertainty and stricter quarantine provisions related to the new omicron variant, BI has decided to carry out all school exams digitally, as home exams, from Tuesday, December 7, and up to January 7,” BI stated.

“Students who, for various reasons, can not take the school exam on a set day due to illness, quarantine, or other reasons, will have the opportunity to take the exam in January,” it is said.
