Remote examination

Due to COVID-19, the President has decided that most examinations during the pandemic restrictions will be conducted remotely. The decision applies to preparatory, first and second-cycle education.

Regulations for remote examination

As a result of the President’s decision the First and Second-cycle Education Committee has presented some recommendations. It is always the examiner that decides the examination format and is the one who should inform the students of this.

On campus proctored examinations should be replaced with alternatives

Examination will continue to take place primarily with forms of examination other than written monitored campus examination (examination or partial exams). Based on proven experience and to increase the diversity of examination forms, the First and Second Cycle Education Committee recommends that oral examination or digital unproctored examinations be used to a greater extent. Furthermore, continuous examination is encouraged.

More information regarding the different forms of examination.

Rules for examinations

  • The examinees must receive written information from the examiner describing the exam prior to the examination.
  • It is recommended that course coordinators/examiners arrange a practice session one week prior to the examination and together with the students go through the examination form.
  • The examinees should be able to ask questions for clarification to the teacher during the examination.
