Special examination arrangement

If you have a disability or a health problem that causes significant inconvenience in an exam situation, you may may be eligible for special examination arrangements.

Special arrangements can not be so extensive that they give you an advantage compared to other students. This means that you will not necessarily be granted the arrangement you have applied for.

Due to to COVID-19 situation you may experience that in-class exams could be re-arranged into alternative, digital exams.

Special examination arrangements for each student will be assessed based on the application and on the current situation.

Below you will find information regarding the current situation and scenarios where it would be necessary to change the exam format.

If the exam format changes
