University Exam Scheduling System Using Graph Coloring Algorithm and RFID Technology

Akhan Akbulut and Güray Yılmaz

Abstract—In this study, we developed a system that provides a solution to exam timetabling problem in universities. The existence of large number of students and courses makes it difficult to schedule exams during midterm and final weeks. Each end of semester brings much work for the department to plan exams. Given solutions may not be always optimum for some students and lectures; double major or repeat students’ exams are not easy to plan manually without using any tools. Our system aimed to schedule different exams in same halls simultaneously. Thus, halls’ capacity will be used more efficiently and cheating attempts will be decreased considerably.
