As from the spring term 2017, written examinations at Linnaeus University are anonymous. This means that your examination is marked anonymously by your teacher/examiner and the results are then registered in Ladok like before. You receive the code you use at the examination sitting when you register for the exam in the central registration system. A confirmation on your registration and your personal code are sent to your student email. You then bring the code with you to the examination sitting and write the code on your examination sheets instead of your name and personal identity number.
