On-campus exams are common at SLU. They are written or e-examinations that take place at an exam venue.

You must be registered in Ladok to be able to participate in exams and resits. SLU works to ensure a fair and secure examination process. As stated in the Education Planning and Administration Handbook, students who are either not registered or register late will not be permitted to sit the exam. Instead, they will have to wait until the next examination session.
Register for the exam via Ladok Student, no later than 10 working days before the exam session. Go to Ladok Student during the registration period and check that your registration is recorded!
If you experience technical problems with your registration, contact your course administrator before the registration period closes.
If you are unable to sit the exam as planned, it is important that you log in to Ladok Student and de-register.
Register for adapted assessments
Students with study support for students with disabilities are entitled to adapted assessments. This may include extended time, using a computer with support programs or taking the exam in a smaller group. Adaptation requests must be registered before each examination.
If you have been granted study support, you will be able to see the adaptations available to you in Nais. However, not all adaptations are possible for all examinations. The adaptations you need may be different depending on the exam, its structure and content. Only register for the adaptations you believe you need for the specific exam.

The exam is written using pen and paper. Write the anonymity code on the top right-hand corner of each page, and submit the final answers. When you submit your answers, it is important that you make sure the anonymity code on the submission list is the same as the one you have written on your exam, and that the number of pages recorded is correct before you sign your submission.
You will not be allowed to enter the exam venue if your name is NOT on the list of registered students. If you believe you have registered for the exam, it is your responsibility to prove that you registered before the deadline, either with information from Ladok or other written document.
Approximately three days before your exam, information about the exam venue, your anonymity code (if the Ladok anonymity codes will be used) will be published on TE Student. Here, you will also find out whether you have been granted study support for the exam.

Campuses with a central organisation for exam management (currently Uppsala and Alnarp)
Contact the examiner or course coordinator with your request. It is not enough for the student to have reasons, but legality and resources must also be taken into account. The examiner, course coordinator or equivalent will then submit the request to the exam services team (TS) if they believe the exam can be taken elsewhere. TS will then assess whether it is possible and contact the examiner, course coordinator or equivalent. They will then notify you. You must register for the exam via Ladok, no later than 10 working days before the exam session.
Campuses without a central organisation for exam management
Contact the examiner or course coordinator with your request. The examiner approves exams at another location on a case-by-case basis. Just because the student has a valid reason to sit the exam elsewhere does not mean their request can be granted. Fairness and available resources must also be taken into consideration. You must ensure that you have found out whether there is a suitable administrator, invigilator and exam venue where you would like to sit your exam. You must also register in Ladok no later than 10 working days before the exam session.
