If you’ll be taking exams this summer, no matter what subject you’re studying, they will take place in WISEflow, the university’s new exam system. The system replaces Digital Exams at Arts, Health Nat and Tech, as well as Aarhus BSS’ previous WISEflow solution. (The new WISEflow at Aarhus BSS is very similar to the old solution staff and students at the faculty are used to.) 

To sign in to the new WISEflow system, click this link. You’ll be able to to see your exams (which are called ‘flows’ in WISEflow) sometime in May or June. Once your exams has been set up in the system, you’ll get a separate mail directly from WISEflow in your AU inbox for each of your exams. You’ll be able to link to your exam from the mail. 

You’ll find the information you need to get started in WISEflow on the support webpage Here you’ll find how-to guides and answers to many frequently asked questions about the system. 

What you need to do before your on-site written exams

If you’ll be taking on-site written exams, be aware that you need to install some additional applications on your computer first; the Lockdown Browser (except students at Arts) and Device Monitor (only selected students at Aarhus BSS). You will be informed about this well in advance of the exams. The description of the exam will explain which of these applications you need to have on your computer for the exam you’re taking.   

If you need to use Lockdown Browser and/or Device Monitor for any of your exams, we recommend that you install and try out both applications well in advance. Find out how on the support webpage under technical guides
