    Rules and Regulations for your DECAMP Exams:

    1. 1. All DECAMP students will do their examinations under the same exam conditions and subject to the same rules and regulations.
      2. Students will do their exams on the respective official DECAMP examination day and within the official period of time (duration) set by DECAMP for the respective examination. BEWARE of the difference advised in time zones!
      3. The exams are face-to-face-proctoring exams.
      4. They will take place at your home university.
      5. Your course instructor will inform you of the dates, times, and the duration of your exams.
      6. Then please contact your home university DECAMP coordinator*. She/he will let you know the exam location and your local “Trusted Professor” (TF”).
      7. Your DECAMP instructor will coordinate everything with the TF of your home university.
      8. The TFs will conduct the examinations based on the questions received from the DECAMP course instructors.
      9. After your exam, the TF will scan your exam sheets and send them for evaluation to the respective DECAMP instructor.
      10. The instructor will
      – correct the exam papers,
      – evaluate your performance based on a percentage figure (out of 100),
      – issue a certificate on a template, and
      – send this certificate, signed and stamped (by post) to the TFs.
      11. Your local TF will scale the percentage results on the local grade scale of your home university and enter it into your application.
      12. You can then apply to your local department administration for accreditation of your exam performance (grade and number of ECTS).
