I understand and agree that the Coronavirus is scary and that classes conducted on campus are already cancelled for our safety but realistically, the virus will die down by April. Why make online exams when you can still do them in real life? Just find other alternatives like changing the size of the classroom or putting greater social distance between students in the exam room. It is not fair for us to be forced to do online exams since the wifi might be poor (especially in residences) and it is very possible that students will have grater opportunities to cheat. 

The university has already taken precautions by cancelling classes for 3 weeks. This will surely mitigate the spread of the virus to a considerable extent. I highly doubt that doing an exam for a few hours will make us get the virus as long as we have good hygiene. As for international students I know you want to leave to be with your family but please don't use this as an excuse to support online exams. There is some of us who are still interested in attending school and seeing our friends. I have read several accounts by other students who are already depressed about not being able to come back to school for the rest of the year. Considering that this disease will slow down by April there is no need to do online exams.
