- You can find the form of examination and the starting time at "Examination: time and place" on the semester page of your course. Messages during the exam will be posted either on the semester page or i Canvas, depending on the course.
- For home exams where you are to submit digital hand drawings, you receive 30 minutes extra time. This additional time will be included in the examination duration stated on the semester page. Note: These extra 30 minutes should be spent making sure your files have uploaded properly. The added time is not an extension of the exam time.

- You will find the exam withdrawal deadline under "Examination: time and place" on the semester page for your course. Withdrawal after the deadline will count as an examination attempt. If you are unable to withdraw within the deadline for reasons related to the corona virus, you may submit a self-notification. See further information about self-notification.
Illness during an exam
- Self-notification: If you have problems submitting your exam due to illness or other valid reasons, you may submit a self-notification without attaching documentation. You are not to open your exam in Inspera if you have already submitted a self-notification. If you become ill during the home exam, you must withdraw from Inspera and then submit a self-notification. See guidelines and fill out the application form. For students at the MN Faculty, this arrangement has been extended to apply until and including 18 October 2021.
- Extended submission deadline: If you become ill during a home examination or project assignment extending across several days, you may apply for extended submission deadline. The self-notification form is used for this purpose. It is not possible to apply for extended submission deadline if you become ill during a home examination of 24 hours or less.
- Postponed examination: The MN Faculty offers postponed examination in all courses, with the exception of AST1010, ENT1000 and IN1150. You must be registered with a valid leave of absence in order to be eligible for postponed examination. You can use the self-notification form to do this. Read more about postponed examination.
- In general, the normal grading scale is used for each course. See the course description to find information on the grading scale in your course. A change of the grading scale will be announced on the semester page.
- Delays in exam assessment may occur due to the corona virus. See paragraph 1 on assessment deadlines in UiO’s temporary regulations concerning studies and exams (valid until 1 february 2022).
Submitting your master’s thesis
- Self-notification is used if you need to apply for a deferred deadline for your master's thesis due to illness. Read the guidelines for submission of master’s theses at the MN Faculty in the spring 2021.
- Master's thesis presentations are as a rule conducted digitally also spring 2021.
- Some courses offer a resit examination in the following semester for students who fail or who withdraw during an ordinary examination. This is an offer in addition to the postponed examination.
- See the course description for information about whether or not your course offers a resit examination.
- Read more about resit examination.
- The MN-faculty recommends that the course coordinator creates a test exam if the format of the exam is changed. A test exam will make students better prepared for the new exam format before the actual exam.
The regulations described on this web page are the same as those that applied autumn 2020.
