Exam routine 

You must check in at one of our exam check-in desks – as designated in your course schedule – in Teknikhuset and Långhuset.

The exam environment is a quiet zone, meaning we keep our voices down and do not disturb other students taking exams.

As a student, you are required to:

  • Check your course schedule for where you are designated to take your exam – either exam rooms T (Teknikhuset) or exam rooms L (Långhuset).
  • Check in at the exam check-in desk in the assigned building and have your proof of ID ready.
  • Check in and pick up your card with your assigned seat.
  • Acquire the sealed envelope (for an hall-based exam) containing your exam and your personal anonymous code.
  • Store all your personal belongings in a locker outside the exam hall.
  • Completely turn off your mobile and store it in a locker outside the exam hall.
  • Bring NO personal belongings with you when visiting the toilet after you have been checked in.
  • Report to the assigned exam hall.
  • Identify yourself to an invigilator at the exam hall door and show that the seal on the on-paper exam envelope is unbroken.
  • Sit at your assigned desk.
  • Read the rules and instructions placed at your assigned seat.
  • Respect the silence in the quiet zone upon entering and until you leave.

The methods of examination used on the course you are taking are described in the course syllabus. Two commonly used methods of examination are hall based exams in exam halls and take-home exams. Written assignments, essays, seminars and hand-in assignments are examples of other methods used.

Hall-based exams – practical information

Signing up

Signing up is compulsory for all examinations at Örebro University.

Exam sign-up opens 25 days before the day of the exam. The last day of sign up is 7 days before the day of the exam. 
Sign up for your exam in the student portal Studenttjänster. If you do not have an ORU account, contact your school to sign up for the exam.  

Proof of identity

To be permitted to take the exam, you are required to bring a valid form of ID to the exam hall. 

Anonymous examinations

At Örebro University, all exams are anonymous to ensure a fair and impartial marking process. Anonymous codes are issued in the exam hall on the day of the exam. 

Before your exam

  • Be at the exam hall 30 minutes before the start of the exam. Many students take exams at the same time and queues may form, which may delay the start of the exam.
  • To be permitted to take the exam, you must bring a valid form of ID to the exam hall. 
  • Remember your course code so that you know which exam to take.
  • When you have completed and submitted your examination, the exam receipt is the only thing you are allowed to bring with you.

View your marked exam

Your exam should be marked within 15 working days from the day of the exam. Two days after you have received your grade, your marked on-paper exam will be scanned and you will be able to view it in Studenttjänster. The scanned copy is your original. Contact Info Centre if you are having trouble viewing your scanned exam.

The paper copy of your exam will be discarded a month after it has been scanned. If you wish to pick up the paper copy before it is discarded, email your request to Info Centre. Include information on which exam you are referring to and you will be contacted once your exam is available for pick-up at the Info Centre’s information desk. Bring a valid form of ID.

Uncompleted courses

If you did not complete your course during the semester in which you had registered for it, contact the study advisor/study and research administrator at the school in question in order to complete the course.

Refer to the exam schedule to view dates for examinations for courses that are being phased out.
