Examination Office

The Examination Office coordinates exams and tests that are booked to take place at Annexet and Sparta. Among other things, this extends to staffing and training of invigilators and coordinating several exams at the same time.

The Examination Office manages many different examinations from various faculties at the same time. These may involve differing aids, rules, finish times and digital examination systems. In order to make efficient and fair management of examinations possible, we would ask that you pay attention to the following rules and procedures, and that you contact us should you have any questions or queries.

Submitting exam papers and materials

Exam papers and other materials, including a completed submission form, are to be submitted no later than the working day before the exam. Submissions take place between 9:00 and 11:00 and between 14:00 and 15:00 at Annexet, Sölvegatan 20. Call +46 46 222 1750 before submission to arrange to be met on site by our staff.

We can provide white or coloured notepaper as well as lined or graph paper – specify your requirements on the submission form.

Digital examinations also require materials to be submitted, such as a list of anonymising codes, printed paper copies of the exam and a completed submission form. For an Inspera exam, you also need to provide the Examination Office with access in accordance with the instructions on the submission form.

Collecting exam papers and materials

Exam papers and other materials from the exam can be collected from the examination hall immediately after the exam ends, but please notify us in advance. Otherwise, collections take place in the basement of Annexet, 9:00 and 11:00 and between 14:00 and 15:00 on the next working day.

Along with the material you will also receive a report where the invigilators convey important information about indicents during the exam. It is important that you take part of the information.

Only those named on the submission form are permitted to collect the material. Proof of ID must be shown.

Common rules

Working with representatives from the faculties, the Examination Office has produced two general rules that apply to all exam venues coordinated by the Examination Office. These concern entering and leaving examinations and ID requirements.

Entering and leaving

The doors to the exam halls are closed at the start of the exam. A second admission takes place 30 minutes after the start of the exam. Students arriving after the second intake will not be allowed to sit the exam and will be referred to the next exam session.

Students may leave the examination centre no earlier than 60 minutes after the start of the examination. For exams with a writing time of less than 60 minutes, students may leave the room only at the end of the writing time.

Identification when sitting examinations

Students must be able to prove their identity by presenting a valid physical (not digital) photo ID. If the student cannot present a valid photo ID, they will not be allowed to sit the exam. Valid types of photo ID are:

  • Swedish passport
  • Swedish driving licence
  • Swedish national identity card
  • Swedish ID card for residents issued by the Swedish Tax Agency
  • National identity card issued by an EU/EEA/Schengen country
  • Foreign passport

Provisional passports and LU cards do not constitute a valid form of identification. It is, however, recommended that LU cards are presented as an additional verification in situations where a non-Swedish form of ID is used.

Students with protected identities are to present valid ID and an alias certificate.

Borrowing a computer

Students have the opportunity to borrow a computer for digital exams in Annexet and Sparta if they are required to use Canvas, Inspera or Moodle. The computer is booked via TimeEdit and is to be collected at least 15 minutes before the start of the exam.

Computers can be booked until 24 hours before the exam starts. Instructions on the booking page are provided in both English and Swedish. Please note that only students are able to log in and book computers.

Self-service booking of computers via TimeEdit

As a member of staff, you can always check that the students´ bookings have gone through.
