First of all, it has clearly showed from database that only small amount of international students have came back and nearly more than half number of students are still overseas, as a result, if Monash Uni held on campus supervised Eexam in 2022 s1, it would result a great  inequality between onshore and offshore students who takes supervised eexams. 

Secondly, more than 12,000 positive cases in Vic everyday, and also flu symptoms, does Monash Uni really deem students' well-being as first place instead of putting students in the high potential risky environment? Doubtfully. In addition, onshore students may question the different eexam conditions between them and offshore students, that is, onshore students are required to bring their own electric devices to exam venue and students are not allowed to charge, whereas offshore students are able to charge their electric device during eexam, as a result, inequality may appear between students. Plus, as for closed book supervised eexam, onshore students must use working sheets provided by Uni, however offshore students can prepare working sheets by their own, hence lead to another inequality between onshore and offshore students, meanwhile, offshore students are required a self check, however offshore students just need to check in 30mins before eexam starts whereas onshore students MUST CHECK IN 1.5hrs BEFORE EEXAM STARTS, consider as another inequality. 

Furthermore, If the Eexams are supervised remotely, hence, both students are unable to see supervisors in person or online, therefore it would be unfair for onshore students to bring their own device to exam venue and take potential risks( such as close contact and potential positive cases) to complete on campus eexams, school may unable to guarantee students that the exam venue is a safe place as students are sitting side by side at LTB or other places. 

Furthermore, as many students have raised their concerns to Monash Connect, however, does Monash Connect and relevant student service center really consider students concerns? If so, students are firmly believe that Monash Uni would re-consider the eexam policies. 

As a result, onshore students are strongly believe that TAKEN HOME EEXAMS or MOODLE QUIZZES are fair for all students this semester.
