Yep! It's short for viva voce, meaning "by live voice" - in other words, and oral exam :)

Right! I was confused because it's pronounced "vye-va," not "vee-va," as I'm used to hearing. Me and my French. :p

If I had seen it on paper before I'd heard it spoken, I would have assumed "vee-va," too (French & Latin training). You've probably noticed by now that there are a lot of things Brits don't know how to pronounce properly ;)
