Exam scheduling projects go live in the UK and Australia
We’re happy to share news of successful go-lives for three of Scientia’s UK Exam Scheduler customers:
- The University of Greenwich has just signed off its Exam Scheduler 3 implementation and successfully planned two exam timetables using the software. This was a particularly challenging project with two-way integration between Greenwich’s student records system (Banner) and Exam Scheduler, and between Exam Scheduler and Syllabus Plus.
- Close by, Kingston University has also finished its integration between Exam Scheduler 3 and Tribal’s SITS student information system. Flatteringly, staff at Kingston said this was their easiest software implementation project to date.
- Lastly, Edinburgh has gone live with Exam Scheduler 3. This was a hard project to undertake and complete due to its complexities. Encouragingly, Edinburgh is proudly promoting its new exams service to students and staff in its newsletters and blog. Read more about the aims of Edinburgh’s Exam Scheduler project.

Over in Australia, the University of Auckland has been using Exam Scheduler to schedule exams for around 800 students who need extra provisions (NEP), with great satisfaction and outcomes. The University of Adelaide has just started the scoping phase of project to deploy Cyon’s Exam Attendance solution. Rose Kirkpatrick, Scientia’s Product Manager for exam solutions, spent the past week with staff at Adelaide to document their requirements.
