Jessenius Faculty of Medicine in Martin
In order for us to be able to guarantee you and the schools that the result is unquestionable and comparable to a face-to-face exam, you must comply with the following rules. In the event of a violation, we are forced to block your exam result and it will not be forwarded to the faculty. We therefore ask you to pay sufficient attention to the following text. We wish you luck.
The Mandatory Equipment Check must be carried out on the same equipment on which you will subsequently take the exam. This will minimise the likelihood of technical problems on the day of the exam. The mandatory check is not evaluated.
Report any technical problems with entering the system to us no later than 3 days before the exam. If you do not complete the Mandatory Equipment Check within the specified deadline, we cannot guarantee technical support during the exam.
Online exams are conducted under conditions comparable with face-to-face exams. So you have a completely empty table and its immediate surroundings in front of you, only allowed items on it (computer with one monitor / laptop, video camera, keyboard and mouse, and any allowed aids), you are alone in the room and you take the exam without help.
A. The work surface and its immediate surroundings must be completely empty, except for permitted objects.
Only items that are expressly permitted by these rules or that have been authorized in writing by Scio prior to the exam at your individual request are allowed on the work surface and in its immediate vicinity (1.5 m from you). The entire area within your immediate reach (1.5 m from you) must also be empty - i.e. completely cleared shelves under the table, next to the table, windowsills, etc.
C. You are only allowed to have the following items on an empty desk - ID, drink, lamp, computer/laptop, mouse pad, keyboard*, mouse*, webcam*, microphone** and laptop stand/pad***.
* The keyboard, mouse, webcam and microphone are only allowed if they are connected to the computer on which you are taking the test and are not already built into that computer. It is forbidden to use more than one keyboard, mouse, webcam or microphone.
** In the case of an external microphone, it must be a separate microphone - it is not allowed to use the microphone in conjunction with headphones, speaker, etc.
*** If you are using a laptop stand/pad, you must show the space underneath.
E. If you are not sure, check the list of prohibited items (the list is for illustrative purposes only). If we notice the presence of an object other than an explicitly permitted object or a prohibited object in the field of view, the participant is excluded from the exam.
To be on the safe side, we repeat that only explicitly permitted items may be kept on the work surface and in its immediate vicinity. In the event of detection of the presence of an object other than an authorised object (or a prohibited object in the field of view), the participant is excluded from the exam. It does not matter whether the participant has used the object or not. For a better understanding of this rule, the following are illustrative examples of items that are not allowed on the work surface or in its immediate vicinity.
For example, the following items are prohibited:
B. You must not have any other display device or object containing text or mathematical or graphical representations of information in your field of view.
The following must not be in your field of vision, i.e. in front of you and next to you (180° from the axis of your head facing the computer on which you are taking the exam):
Items not prohibited above may be in your field of vision, provided they do not contain information that could give you an unfair advantage in taking the exam. In particular, in your field of vision (typically on a wall) you may have a painting, poster, or photograph.
D. For the Jessenius Faculty of Medicine exam, you can keep a note paper and pencil on your work surface.
For the Jessenius Faculty of Medicine exam, it is also possible to have the following on the work surface:
You can keep a phone in the room throughout the exam in case you need to contact customer support. However, the phone must have its sound and vibration turned off and must be placed completely out of your reach. The phone can only be used to contact Scio customer support.
When the call is over, you must put the phone away out of your reach so that it is clear that you cannot use it during the exam (the putting away must be clear and distinct on the camera recording).
Please enter the test at the official start time indicated in the invitation.At the beginning of each exam, ScioLink checks your webcam, microphone and internet connection speed.
After checking the minimum technical requirements , you will be prompted to install the Proctoring Desktop extension. This extension monitors running processes and devices on your computer. The extension must be running during the entire exam.
As with a face-to-face exam, we need to verify that you are taking the exam with your ID.
Before the exam begins, you will be asked to take a photo of your face and ID and film your room.The photo of your face must be clear and the details on your ID card clearly legible.You can use your civil ID card, driving licence or passport.The app allows you to hide some parts of your ID or passport and save only the necessary data, which are: photo, first name, surname, date of birth and validity of the document.
The result is blocked whenever there is a violation of the rules during the exam, because in such a case Scio cannot ensure that the participant has not gained or could not gain an undue advantage over other participants. To detect violations of the rules, the records from the online exam are used, but also other procedures for evaluating the course of the examination (e.g. analysis of the participant's answers).
The results of online exams, as they are transmitted to the faculties and as they are used in the admission procedure, must meet strict criteria for correctness and comparability of the knowledge and skills of the individual participants in the online exam. Scio vouches to the faculty and all participants that the online exam results have these characteristics. And if Scio cannot guarantee that a result has such characteristics, it cannot be used in the admissions process. In such a case Scio will decide on the blocking of the result. Participants shall raise any objections to the evaluation with the faculty through the standard appeals process.
