Examination procedures

  • 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.
  • The exam rooms at Silurveien 2 will be open, with strict infection control measures
  • 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.  
  • If you are to submit your answer paper as a PDF file, you must read UiO's guide to submitting files in Inspera.
  • Note that all home exams will be subject to a plagiarism check. See rules regarding cheating.
  • Read UiO's guidelines for correct use of sources.
  • 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. 

Illness during an exam

  • If you have problems submitting your exam due to illness or other valid reasons, you can apply for an approved absence. NB! For exams that require physical attendance at UiO, you do not need to attach documentation until 30/6 2022.  This applies to all school exams in Silurveien as well as for instance oral exams that require physical attendance. For more information, see "Illness at exams / postponed exams". 
  • 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.

Resit examination

  • 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.

Test exam

  • 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.
