Once you have collected the completed tests you can bring them to the ESA-desk.

  1. When handing this over be sure to add a key form if you use one.

  3. After you have received an email from you can pick up your answer sheets.


If you don’t have time to pick up your answer sheets yourself, and want a Teaching Assistant to do this, the TA will have to have an employee account. You also have to send an email to letting them know who will pick up your answer sheets, so they can check whether the TA has an employee account, and can check their identity before handing over the answer sheets.
