In case of On-line exam, questions are changed at the last minute by pulling questions from the Question Banks so it's almots impossible to tell, which question will come and which won't. Randomization of questions ensures that no two examinees will see the same question at the same time. Another benefit is, "No data loss even in case of power or internet failure".
