    Hi Ryan,

    Our students do have weekly online quizzes. Using iPads for those is a great idea and can help with reducing the final exams' stress.

    The students can only take the Anatomy exam in the laboratory, as each question is linked to an anatomical specimen.

    Thanks Ali

    I appreciate the students' concerns regarding online exams, but I think practice exams and perhaps weekly pop quizzes (worth minimal marks) would do much to alleviate those conncerns.

    I am wondering if you intend to allow students to undertake the exams wherever they wish (at home, in the office, on the bus etc), or will you still require them to turn up at a physical location?
