In June we had the pleasure of bringing exam and office staff together at our summer event. Thanks to everybody who joined us. It was a blast – have a look for yourself.

We would like to thank all our staff for their great work.

May I say that I’m a big fan of the Swiss Exams Access portal. I was sent an email that allowed me to set up my account very easily. The clarity of the layout as well as the information available are first class. Whoever designed and implemented that portal deserves a song of praise.
