For example, if you have technical issues with your computer or the test, or you experience other things that disturb you in a way that prevents you from or delays your answering the questions, you must make your uniTEST supervisor aware of this as soon as possible.
If you subsequently believe that you have experienced conditions during the test which give rise to concern – or you would like to complain about any conditions to which you have not reported on the same day – please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please contact us no later than 14 days after you have completed the uniTEST, so that we can process your inquiry.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your computer meets the technical requirements. You are responsible for checking that your computer's setup and Internet connection are compatible with remote proctoring.
The University of Southern Denmark is obliged to ensure the quality of admission. This includes ensuring the applicant has obtained the uniTEST result correctly. Therefore, SDU will inspect that the applicant has not received any unlawful help during the test.
Given that uniTEST is a multiple-choice questionnaire with only one correct answer per question, without the possibility of providing supplementary comments, it is crucial that the applicant has no option of communicating with others during the test.
No personal information is processed unless the applicant, by choice or accident, shares information on the web camera, verbally or on-screen. SDU registers personal data in accordance with the general data protection regulation, specifically paragraph 6, sub-section 1.
If you cheat, you risk never being allowed to study at SDU. At worst, you could get permanently expelled from university – even if you have not been enrolled at the university before.
Your actions will be considered as cheating if you:
- Attempt to circumvent, disable or otherwise obstruct the purpose of the University's use of electronic proctoring programs
- Fail to disclose
- Are misleading about your own efforts or results
- Take part in unauthorised collaborations
- Receive help during the test or help others
