Examination on KTH during COVID-19

We understand that students have many thoughts regarding examinations since the spread of infection has increased in Sweden. Here you can find the latest information regarding examination on KTH. Rules and recommendations on this page may change as a result of the government and other authorities' recommendations and decisions.

At KTH, we follow the recommendations from the Public Health Agency of Sweden, Folkhälsomyndigheten, and according to their guidelines, we are carrying out physical education and examinations on campus.

To reduce the spread of the virus, we have taken various measures for students to feel safe during their examinations. We allow only a maximum of 30 people in the examination halls, with a distance of at least 1.5 meters between individuals. Everyone will also have access to hand sanitisers.

The entry and exit ways are marked so there can be a safe distance between individuals. The examiners will sit in the hall behind a plexiglass screen, and the teachers will occasionally drop by outside the hall in case there are questions to be answered.

If you are sick or experience any symptoms, please stay home and follow the general guidelines: If you or a family member has become ill (folkhalsomyndigheten.se) .

If you miss the exam due to illness, you can take the re-exam during the next exam period.

Will KTH offer additional examination sessions?

The Swedish government and the Swedish Higher Education Authority urge the Swedish universities to be flexible with more examination opportunities for those who have symptoms or are ill. If you cannot participate in the examination during the examination period for P2 (10-17 January 2022), you are referred to the re-examination period for P2 (19-22 April 2022). As of today, no additional examination sessions for P2 are planned.

KTH may offer extra examination sessions later. Any offer of additional examination sessions for is given in connection with the registration for the re-examination period opening in March.

Exam schedules for 21/22
