Routines for written hall examinations

Do not take part if you are sick

If you are sick, you must not take part in your hall examination, and you must report your absence to your teacher. If you cannot participate due to sickness, you can instead take your examination at the next possible opportunity.

Reduce crowding in the building

It is still important to prevent crowding, so try to spend as little time as possible in the hallways outside the examination halls, both prior to and after the exam.

Identify yourself

The invigilator will check your identification against the list of registered students after you have sat down at your seat and the exam has started. Remember to take your identification with you to your seat.

Questions and comments during your exam? Contact the invigilator
If you have questions during your exam, you can approach the invigilator’s desk and ask your questions through the Plexi glass sheet. Remember to maintain distance to other students and the invigilator – take note of the floor markings.

Hand in your exam

When handing in your exam, remember to maintain distance to other students and the invigilator – take note of the floor markings.
