Date format should be adjustable per region, not only American style MMDDYYYY

For Mobius users who are not used to the American date format 04/02/2019 is read as fourth of February even though it is April second.

Currently the date format is MMDDYYYY, however in Europe the common date format is DDMMYYYY.

Thus the date of the exam is very confusing to students.

    DD-MM-YYYY is also standard in Australia. Other formats (YYYY-MM-DD is the ISO8601 standard) are more common in parts of Asia.

    The format used is not day-month-year but month-day-year which is the problem. To users not familiar with this convention it is very easy to mistake a month-day-year format for the more logical day-month-year format.

    The format used to exchange dates electronically should conform to international standards, but the format used to convey information to users should conform to a format, that users can easily understand, and such formats vary from country to country.
