Examination timetabling is a time management task in educational institutions and
defined as scheduling for the exams as the set of university courses. Timetabling is one
of the complex things to be resolved in the world of education since it has to be neat
and well-organized. Therefore, the university administration must avoid any
overlapping and include the gap period between courses to give preparation of the
student for upcoming papers. The main purpose of this research is to generate an
effective flexible exam timetabling and to investigate the preference examination
timetabling for CS249 part 5 students at UiTM Seremban 3. Besides, Lingo software
18 .0 is being used to complete the task to find the conclusion of the study. In this
research, the gap for students who follow the study plan is 3 days per course while for
the repeated papers, it is only 2 days per course. If there are some students whose take
an extra credit hour in a current semester, the students should follow the situation 2
since the situation 1 is a fixed for the students whose follow the study plan while
situation 2 is for students who have repeated papers, take an extra credit hour and many
more. By using the mathematical model, examination timetabling is easier to be
schedule compare to when the examination timetabling is schedule manually. Finally,
the study shows the number of the gap is required based on the number of credit hours
of each subject that students take for the current semester.
