Exam or Normal seating type
An examination needs to be assigned to one or more rooms of enough capacity. Based on this seating type, either room capacity (seating type Normal) or room examination capacity (seating type Exam) must be met. These capacities are displayed for each room on the Rooms page.
Expected number of students to take the examination
The maximum number of rooms into which an examination can be split (for example, an examination for a class of 400 students can be split into two or three rooms if they need to use Exam seating type and do not have a room with exam seating capacity of 400 seats)
An exam is not assigned to a room when the maximum number of rooms is set to zero (it is assigned to a period that best meets the student needs and period preferences).
