    Some University of Auckland students are upset at having to sit exams in person

    Some University of Auckland students are upset at having to sit exams in person


    The university plans to have students in New Zealand sit exams in person, while those overseas will sit them online and open book.

    More than two dozen students contacted Newstalk ZB with concerns - saying it's unfair.

    Many, who wrote "on behalf of a collective", say Covid-19 still presents looming uncertainties and they've spent most of the year online.

    They say having to sit exams in person will cause additional stress and everyone should sit online exams again so it's equal.
