Examination service

Examinations are tests which are usually organised at the end of a course. Here you can find which regulations apply for exams at Halmstad University.

There are different types of exams. A written exam takes place in a lecture hall and you write it together and at the same time as your fellow students. A take-home examination or unsupervised examination is an assignment when you use the course literature actively and often have several days to complete the assignment. Exams can also be conducted as oral or practical tests, which examination form that applies to your course is given in the syllabus. If you fail an exam, you are entitled to re-examinations or re-takes.

Registration is required for written exams

You must always register for every written exam in Student Ladok. If you don't register during the two weeks a registration is open, you are not allowed to take the exam.

Please contact Service Center before the registration period has passed if you can't register in Student Ladok.

Regulations for written exams

  • Make sure you arrive with plenty of time to spare.
  • Bring a valid general ID. The invigilators are obliged to check your ID.
  • It is not permitted to choose your seat yourself.
  • You are responsible for checking what aids are permitted in the exam room. Notes, tablets, mobile phones etcetera may not be taken to your allotted desk.
  • Any conversation between the candidates is not permitted.
  • The candidate may not leave the room until 40 minutes after the start of the exam at the earliest, even for visits to the bathroom.
  • Disabled students can be provided with specific assistance during the examination. A plan for assistance requirements should be made by the disabled student together with the university disabled student officer.

Re-takes

Students who fail in an examination are entitled to a re-take. Each ’regular’ examination includes the possibility of a further two re-take exam dates. If further dates are required, the student may be asked to sit the exam based on a new or amended syllabus from that of the original course. This regulation is in force regardless of whether the three exam dates have been used up or not. The lecturer responsible for the course has the right to organise an extra exam providing that there are specific reasons for it and the examiner approves it. If students fail twice in an examination for a course or part of a course, they have the right to change examiner.

Exam results and follow-up sessions

As a student, you have the right to an oral or written follow-up of the exam. The date/time for this follow-up session is notified at the latest when the exam results are notified. Candidates have the right to receive their exam scripts starting from the day of the grading approval and for a maximum of one year afterwards. After this, the School has no liabilities in terms of archiving exams. Once students have received their exam scripts back from the office they can no longer request the revision of the original corrections/marks.
