Important Information about Exams

Oral examination

It is your own responsibility to be present when it is your turn to be examined. The exam list is not a time schedule, so if one student does not show up, the next one on the list will be examined instead. Therefore, if you want to make sure that you are there, when the lecturers are ready to examine you, you should be there from the beginning of the exam schedule - you cannot know whether all students listed on the exam schedule will be present.

If there is preparation time before the oral exam the first student has to show up 30 minutes before the examination starts.

Aids permitted at exams incl. computers

In the Course Catalogue you can find information about permitted aids for exam in the specific course description.

Computers are only permitted if specifically mentioned in the course description.

Digitisation of hand-written material

If you need to prepare hand-written material in connection with your written digital exam – such as drawings, formulae or other items – the material must be digitised and attached to your exam paper. You are personally responsible for digitising the material and attaching it to your exam paper.

The digitisation must take place in the time allowed for the exam and in the examination room, using approved digitisation tools.

If you need to prepare hand-written material, you must choose between the following digitisation solutions:

  • Use a hand-held web camera, a digital camera connected via USB cable and with an empty memory card, the camera built into the computer, a hand-held scanner, or the camera in a mobile phone, tablet, or other communication platforms (NOTE: mobile phone, tablet, or other communication platforms are only allowed during online exams from home in the summer of 2021)
  • Draw directly on your computer using the mouse, a stylus pen, or a tablet board.

You are personally responsible for ensuring that the digitised material is of a quality that enables it to be read and assessed. We recommend that you try out the digitisation tools well before the exam, so that you are completely familiar with them when you use them in the exam.

You are not permitted to use a mobile phone, tablet, or other communication platforms to digitise hand-written material during exams on Campus. See the rules and regulations for communication during a written exam here.

You have two options for attaching digitised material to your exam paper. You can:

  • enter the material directly as an image in the exam paper or
  • upload the material as a separate attachment next to the exam paper.

We recommend that you enter the hand-written material directly in your exam paper, so that you can submit the paper as a single document.

* Digitisation tools are available in reasonable quality in price ranges from below DKK 100.

Special examination conditions

If you have a physical or mental disability, a first language other than Danish, or other difficulties, it is possible that the university can grant you special examination conditions in order to provide you the same exam conditions as others.

If you want to request special exam conditions you can read about how to send an application at the bottom of this page.

Communication during written exams

When you are sitting a written exam, please note that communication is not permitted. Communication during an exam is regarded as cheating.

If you receive messages or similar from communication platforms or file-sharing services during the exam, you must under no circumstances answer them, and you must immediately inform the exam supervisors about what has happened.

Exam cheating

Cheating at examinations can have very serious consequences for you. Make sure you know the rules, which can be found here.
