Hand in exam

When you are ready to hand in your exam, press the "Hand in exam" button in the bottom right corner to hand in the exam and exit the application.

When you press the "Hand in exam" button you will be asked twice if you want to hand in your exam (see figure 5 and 6). This is a safety precaution made to prevent an accidental hand in of an exam.
