Precautionary Measures for Examinations during the Outbreak of COVID-19

 

TWC is implementing a series of precautionary measures during the examinations to ensure the health and well-being of students and staff during the outbreak of COVID-19.  Both students and staff should pay attention to the following important points when taking the examinations:

 

Before leaving for the Examination Venue

  1. Students must check their body temperature before leaving for the examination venue.  Students with the following conditions should NOT go to the examination venue but consult a doctor promptly:
  1. Fever (body temperature at or higher than 38°C), regardless of the presence of acute respiratory tract infection symptoms such as cough or shortness of breath;
  2. No fever but with the presence of acute respiratory tract infection symptoms.
  1. Students who have been to the Mainland or countries/ districts in which mandatory quarantine is required by the Hong Kong Government within 14 days before the start of examination period should NOT go to the examination venue.  They have to declare such information to the Registry before the start of examination period through the online declaration form which is available here.  Students refusing to cooperate or making false, incomplete or misleading declaration may receive penalty or even be disqualified from the examination.
  1. For students who cannot attend any examinations due to mandatory quarantine/ self-quarantine, they may apply for supplementary examination upon completion of the declaration as required.  Please refer to Section 3.3 of the Student Handbook for the concerned application procedures.
  1. Students are reminded to bring their surgical mask(s) to the examination venue while surgical masks will be provided on a need basis (one per examination day) at the entrance of campus. 

 

Before the examination

  1. Students should arrive at the campus at least 30 minutes before the examination starts since body temperature checking will be carried out at the entrance of campus.  Students will NOT be allowed to enter the examination venue 30 minutes after the commencement of the examination and will receive zero marks for the examination concerned.
  1. Students will NOT be allowed to enter the examination venue if they are found to be having a fever or with the presence of acute respiratory tract infection symptoms after the checking of body temperature and health condition at the entrance of campus.  They should consult a doctor promptly and may apply for supplementary examination by referring to Section 3.3 of the Student Handbook for the concerned application procedures.
  1. Students must put on their own surgical mask and rub their hands by using alcohol sanitizer-gel placed at the entrance of campus before entering the examination venue.

 

During the examination

  1. Students will be spaced out in the examination venues as far as practicable. Sufficient distancing will be in place between seats though there might be slight variation depending on the physical setting of the examination venues.
     
  2. Students are required to put on a surgical mask at all times during the examination.  Those who refuse to put on their surgical mask will be regarded as having breached the examination regulations and may be disqualified from taking the examination.  Invigilators may ask candidates to remove their surgical mask temporarily during the taking of attendance in order to verify their identities.
     
  3. Students with serious sneezing/ persistent coughing may be arranged to sit at the reserved seats of the examination venue in order to minimise disturbance to other students.  Students who need surgical mask may ask for help from the invigilators.  

 

After the examination

  1. At the end of the examination, students should follow the instructions of the invigilators in leaving the examination venue in batches, so as not to crowd the exits.
