No, really, it’s a privilege and convenience to be able to take exams from home. That needs to be communicated. Both the LON-CAPA and the ProctorU functionalities are proven, so if an exam “crashes,” the problem is usually the connectivity (unless a student realizes that they cannot do the math and thus decides to make the exam “crash” on purpose to buy some more study time). If they cannot get the technology to work, they can go to a testing center or come on campus.
Granted, the first round can be bumpy (which is why a “practice exam” is a good idea), but by the second exam, these issues should go away.
