How do I convert my exam paper to pdf?

When you upload your exam paper to WISEflow, it must be a PDF file. With a PDF file it is impossible to change the content and formatting of the paper, which means that when your assessors open the file, it will look the same as when you submitted it. The uploaded PDF file corresponds to the paper version that students have previously been asked to print out and hand in.

The maximum permitted file size for the total PDF file is 200 MB. Additional material/appendices may (if permitted) be uploaded in other file formats. The total maximum permitted file size is 5 GB.

You cannot convert a document to PDF just by changing the file name. Instead, you should follow the guidelines below.

When converting an Excel-document from Mac, you should pay special attention to Excel-files with multiple sheets. 
Do not insert page numbers, images, highlighting or anything else in the PDF file after it has been created, as this can cause problems when uploading it in WISEflow. Always make corrections in the original document and create a new PDF file. 

Certain programs may add so-called annotations to the PDF file by default (without you having added them on purpose). Especially Microsoft Excel on Mac has this problem. Please see this guideline on the WISEflow website, if you experience this problem.
