Written examination

This page presents compiled information concerning written examinations.

Written examinations are handled by our Facilities Administration in order to guarantee the anonymisation process.

A student must be registered in order to be allowed to enter the examination room. A student who is not registered, may show up at the examination room on the day of the examination and be granted a seat if possible, however not until 45 minutes of the examination have passed. A student who is not registered may only be allowed to take the examination if someone who is registered does not show up.
Linnaeus University does not accept late registrations.

The examination documents must be in place in the examination room in the city in question by 13.00 the day before the written examination at the latest. This to make sure that the invigilators have time to prepare all examination documents with the conditions stated for each respective examination.

The placement of students in the examination room is planned 6–4 workdays before the day of the examination and then sent to students, teachers, education administrators, and invigilators via email.

Students are allowed to enter the room 20–30 minutes before start upon presentation of valid identification or passport. 50 minutes after the start, at the earliest, students may leave the room to visit the toilet or to hand in their examination.

Invigilators monitor the examination to make sure that it is carried out in a legally sound way. In cases of suspicion of cheating, the responsible teacher will be contacted and a report will be written and sent to the responsible teacher and to the Disciplinary Board.

An examination that has been written in Växjö is to be collected at the examination room. Examination written in Kalmar will, at the time being, be sent to the responsible teacher’s office. Once the examination unit in Kalmar has moved to Universitetskajen, written examinations will be collected at the examination room in building Culmen.

Address to Examination room:
Kalmar, Culmen, vån5, rum Cu2014K
Växjö, Building H, ground floor

The examination unit in Kalmar will move to building Culmen on 18 January 2021.

Scanning of marked examination

During autumn 2020, tests are being carried out on our solution for digital archiving, distribution and retrieval of examination results, which we simply call Examination scanning.

Examinations will be scanned after marking and then be distributed to each respective student and stored in our archiving system for 2 years. Students can access their marked examinations via the student web. We will start this work in small scale and then upscale it gradually.

Only examinations that are ordered via Salstentamen and, thus, have the adapted cover page will be scanned.
