Recommendations for your new computer

Recommendations for your new computer

If you are thinking about buying a new computer and/or software, please be aware of the following recommendations and minimum demands. We have put them together to ensure that you can use your own equipment in connection with Digital Examination at Aalborg University.

Recommendations for student computers:

  • PC: Windows 7/8/10, Internet Explorer 10, Google Chrome and Firefox in the newest version.
    (we have knowledge of concrete problems using Internet Explorer 11 in regard to the Digital Examination, which is why we recommend using Google Chrome or Firefox)
  • Mac: Mac OS X 10.12 or newer and the Firefox browser.

Minimum requirements:

  • PC: Windows 7 with Internet Explorer 9 (we do recommend using Google Chrome or Firefox though).
  • Mac: Mac OS X 10.7 and the Firefox browser.
  • Memory: 2 GB RAM.

We recommend that you test your own equipment prior to the exam.

Before purchasing a Mac, we recommend that you check if you are required by your study program to use applications that are only supported by a Windows PC.
