Exam period in August 2021

This is what you do as a student if you become ill before the exam
The Public Health Agency's advice to the public is to stay at home if you are ill. If this means that you are prevented from writing an examination due to illness or cold symptoms, the university offers several re-examination opportunities each year. To see which exam opportunities are available, see the link to the Exam below.

Exam registration is required
The registration period is open between June 28 - July 27. You need to register for examination before deadline. The registration is done here.

Exams on site 
We follow the Public Health Agency's recommended distance between the benches. Hand alcohol is available at all hall exams. The infection control in Norrbotten has announced that even in the event of a local outbreak, an exam on site is considered safe, with the right distance between the writers.

Late exam registration
No late exam registration will be possible after the deadline. If you have missed registering for an exam, you will be allowed to take the exam at the next exam.

Queue list
No queue list will be handled this exam period, neither for the distance exam nor in the hall.

Double exam
You can write a double exam, which is placed on the same day and time, provided that you can meet the conditions for each exam. Read the instructions carefully to find out what applies to your particular exams.

Application for double exam is required.

Please note that it is not possible to take two or more supervised exams at the same time, neither the zoom-supervised exam nor the exam in the hall.

Exam adaptation
You apply for exam adaptation as usual after you have registered for your exam(s). The application for examination adaptation must be submitted no later than the last day for registration. You will find more information and exam adaptation and a link to the application form here.
