The Danish Ministry of Education wants to allow ‘A’ level students to use the Internet in exams.

Check out the reports in the Danish media, how Danish ‘A’ level students are likely to be able to use the Internet in their written exams if a test run later this year proves successful.


The Ministry of Education says that pupils already use the Internet for tests. “It’s a good way to get hold of historical facts or an article that can be useful, for example, in a written social sciences exam,” Ministry Education Consultant Søren Vagner tells Danish newspaper MetroXpress.

Digital hand-in In order to prevent students from cheating by downloading translation programmes or communicating using chats, the idea is that papers should be handed in digitally and that there should be random checks on sites that students visit during an exam. “That will enable us to carry out plagiarism checks,” Vagner says, continues Politiken
