Students with examination adaptions 

Due to the covid-19 pandemic. Special routines for distance exams​

Students with a Nais certificate who have been granted an extended period of time by Funka have the opportunity to take an exam with a 50% extended time. In normal cases, an adapted examination is reported to the examination administration, but during the autumn of 2020, you will instead turn to your examiner. This applies to both distance exams and exams on the campus.​


The student is responsible for reporting to the examiner which adjustments have been decided on and recommended in Nais. This must be done at least 10 working days before the adapted examination. In digital form, the student presents his or her Nais message to the examiner, who makes an appropriate adaptation of the examination. The examiner then sends a list to the exam administration with the students who will write with extended time.​​​
