Guide to online exams

You can find information and guidance on taking online exams on the page here:

  • Online exams at the faculty of Arts

If you are infected with Covid-19 and have symptoms that prevent you from taking the exam

If you are infected with Covid-19 and you are too ill to take your online exam, you have the opportunity to apply for an exemption to be withdrawn from the exam and register for the re-examination at a later semester.

Please observe the standard guidelines for absence from exams due to illness.

If you are going to take a re-exam with physical attendance

If you are unable to attend the exam due to self-isolation as a result of infection/suspicion of infection with Covid-19

If you have tested positive for Covid-19 (or if you are self-isolating or experience sudden symptoms of Covid-19), you must not attend exams on campus.

Option of taking exams online

If it is feasible from an academic viewpoint to conduct an exam online without changing the form of the exam in any other way, you can apply to take this exam using Zoom.

We will assess such cases on an individual basis to decide whether this online option is practical in terms of planning, and will do what we can to help you take exams online if you want to do this. 

Your options depend on the exam in question and the academic and practical feasibility of the situation: Can the exam be conducted online without changing its form in any other way, and is it feasible from a planning point of view to change your exam into an online exam using Zoom?

How to apply for an online exam:

If you want to apply to take an oral exam using Zoom, you must send an email to the Study Centre Arts as soon as possible, but no later than 10:00 on the day before your exam.

Remember to identify the exam clearly – please state not only the name of the exam, but also the date and time.

You must attach the following documentation:

  • If you have tested positive for Covid-19: You must send us a copy of your test result from sundhed.dk as well as your application for dispensation. This test result must be no more than 14 days old.
  • If you have symptoms, or if you are self-isolating: You must complete and submit this solemn declaration.

If it is feasible from a practical point of view to take your exam using Zoom, you will be informed about how and when your online exam will take place.

Please check our guide for taking online exams.

If your application is rejected

If it is deemed to be impossible for practical or academic reasons to conduct your exam using Zoom, you will be de-registered from the ordinary exam and will be allowed to take the re-examination in February without having failed the ordinary exam.

However this is only possible if you have applied before your exam starts.

The form of the re-examination is not necessarily the same as the form of the ordinary exam, so remember to check your academic regulations.

The date of the re-examination is stated in the exam plan.

If you apply after the deadline

If you apply after the deadline (10:00 on the day before your exam) but before your exam starts, you will be allowed to de-register from the exam and register for the re-examination in February.

This will not be regarded as a failed attempt to pass the ordinary exam.

The form of the re-examination is not necessarily the same as the form of the ordinary exam, so remember to check your academic regulations. The date of the re-examination is stated in the exam plan.

How to de-register from exams:

If you want to de-register from an exam and register for the re-examination, you must submit an application form for dispensation via mitstudie.au.dk before the time at which the exam starts.

Remember to identify the exam clearly – please state not only the name of the exam, but also the date and time.

You must attach the following documentation:

  • If you have tested positive for Covid-19: You must send us a copy of your test result from sundhed.dk as well as your application for dispensation. This test result must be no more than 14 days old.
  • If you have symptoms, or if you are self-isolating: You must complete and submit this solemn declaration.

What happens if my examiner is prevented from coming to campus in person owing to Covid-19?

If your examiner is prevented from coming to campus in person, we will try to move the exam to a later date. Alternatively, you will be de-registered from the re-examination without having used one of your examination attempts.

If your examiner is prevented from attending an exam in person, Arts Studies Administration will send you an email before your exam.

ABROAD STUDIES IN SPRING 2022

If your stay is interrupted or you cannot go abroad

Due to the coronavirus situation, a number of planned study periods abroad are unfortunately not possible. This may be your host university, who cancels, or yourself, who, for one reason or another, does not want or can go abroad.

If you return from your period of study abroad or if you have not been able to go abroad, you will have the opportunity to register for teaching and exams at AU, even though the semester has already started.

Your options regarding an alternative course depend on your academic regulations and the specific range of courses in the spring semester.

If you wish to cancel your period of study abroad and to be registered for courses at AU, you must notify us by submitting an application for exemption via mystudies.au.dk.

In the "What are you applying for" field, just write "I interrupt my study abroad in the spring semester 2022 and want to be registered for the teaching at AU".

You do not need to attach documentation.

Once we have received your application, you will receive an email with information about which courses you have been registered for.
