A countdown timer for examination with minutes and seconds display in which the examiner can adjust the period of time. The time will be display with 3 seven segment display, this can be used as a 1 for minute and 2 for seconds or all display for minutes only. The buzzer will alarm every after thirty minutes. This is to jog the memory of the examinees, on how much time is left.

Having a timer, time management will definitely be better. This project helps not only for the students but also for proctors as well. We conclude that this project indeed suitable for Computer Engineering students, especially to those taking up Circuits I and Computer Systems Organization. By accomplishing this project, we have now seen as exact useful of our lessons.
After we conducted a 90, 180 and 240 minute test to our timer we come across with a particular conflict regarding its display. The more the number we set to our timer the more it blaze its ground in the display.
