Exam regulations

There are certain regulations you need to follow in connection to taking an exam. Please read below information carefully to ensure you are prepared prior to your exam.

Regulations for written exams

Before the exam

  • Bring your passport or ID-card (access cards or UT-cards are not valid IDs). Without a valid ID you are not allowed to take your exam.
  • Bring your code on a piece of paper (you can find the code when you register in Student Ladok).
  • Also bring a pencil, eraser, ink pen and other approved aids for the exam. If you are uncertain what aids are permitted in the exam room, ask your teacher.
  • Notes, tablets, mobile phones, smart watches and other technical devices are not allowed at your allotted desk. Suspected cheating will be reported immediately.
    Cheating and plagiarism
  • Writing paper, alcogel and disposable gloves will be available in the exam room.
  • You are allowed to bring food and beverages and eat during the exam.
  • Make sure you arrive with plenty of time to spare, preferably 30 minutes before the exam starts. About 10 minutes before the exam starts, information is given.
  • If you arrive later than 30 minutes after the exam has started you will not be allowed in.

During the exam

  1. Keep your distance from others inside and outside the hall.
  2. Have your ID and code ready when entering the exam room.
  3. If you bring a mobile phone, switch it off, put it in your bag or jacket and hang it in the designated place.
  4. It is not permitted to choose your own seat. Go to the designated / presented place in the exam room. Put your ID and code clearly visible on the bench.
  5. It is not permitted to talk to other students during the exam.
  6. You find the exam in the upside-down exam cover on the desk. The cover with the exam may only be turned over when the invigilator announces that it is allowed. Opening the exam cover in advance is considered cheating and will be reported.
  7. Write your exam.
  8. Let the invigilators know if you need to contact a teacher or go to the toilet. You may not leave the room until 40 minutes after the exam has started at the earliest, even for visits to the bathroom.
  9. Bring your exam and everything else from the desk to avoid unnecessary walking in the room. To avoid queuing when the exams are handed in, students must proceed one at a time.
  10. Place your exam and ID in the designated place and take a step back while the invigilator checks your submitted material.
  11. Leave the exam room and continue to keep distance from others.

After the exam

  1. When your teacher has graded your exam, you will receive the result in Student Ladok.
  2. A few days after you have received the result and your exam is in the “Exams available for collection-list”, you can collect your exam at Service Center or contact us via Helpdesk to have your written exam scanned and e-mailed to you.

Proving your identity during digital exams

You must present proof of identity in connection with the exam if:

  • it is necessary to ensure the examination is legally secure (which an examiner can assume that it is at an examination)
  • it can be done so that other students or participants do not see your ID
  • it can be performed without being recorded

Proof of identity in a digital examination can be done by:

  • The examiner or exam supervisor taking each individual student who participates in the exam in an individual digital room (so-called "Breakout rooms") where the student shows his / her ID to the camera and is then ticked off in the list of registered students
  • Such identification can be completed either before the examination starts, or during the examination.
