Examination service

Examinations are tests which are usually organised at the end of a course. Exams are usually written but they can also be conducted as oral or practical tests.

You should be notified of the dates for the exams at the start of the course. Which examination form that applies to your course is given in the syllabus. Remember that you need to register for your exam on time in Student Ladok, otherwise you are not allowed to take the exam. If you can't see your registration in Student Ladok, please contact Service Center before the registration period has passed.

In order to take part in an exam you must:

  • Be registered or have had a registration for the course.
  • Be registered for the exam itself (you can register in Student Ladok).
  • Bring a valid ID to the exam. The invigilators are obliged to check your ID.

If you have any questions, please contact Service Center.

Exam registration and examination periods

You must register for exams in Student Ladok. The registration opens three weeks prior to your School's examination period and closes two weeks later. If you want to know exactly when your registration is open you can view the dates in Student Ladok. The same rules apply for re-takes.

The examination days are the days in the academic year when examinations are given and together those days form different periods. An examination period could for example be one week or two days, depending on School. You can find your examination periods in the Academic yearPDF (pdf, 74.8 kB). Please note that the beginning of an examination period is the day or week stated in the column ’Examination’ in the Academic year.

If you have not registered for the exam in advance, you can write the exam provided that there are places available in the exam hall. You will also need a certificate of registration for the course.

You will need to wait until the invigilator has started the exam for the registered students, provided that there are places available in the exam hall. Students with disabilities must (following a meeting with the University's disabled student officer) submit a special form two weeks prior to the exam date in order to receive assistance. The form should be sent to the Student Affairs. 

Important considerations for written exams

  • Make sure you arrive with plenty of time to spare.
  • Valid general ID must be shown.
  • 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.


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.
