Hundreds of students were ready to take the exam on Tuesday morning when they were told it had been postponed. It turned out the exam had been posted on Nestor overnight, coordinator Evelieke Slob confirmed, which meant the students could have potentially seen it.

Students pointed out the mistake to the course’s lecturers, after which the exam was cancelled. The lecturers changed the exam in great haste, allowing the exam to take place the same morning.  If the mistake had been discovered after the exam had been administered, the whole exam would have been invalid.

The law faculty doesn’t yet know why the exam was accessible on Nestor before it was supposed to be.
