Two examinations at the same time? If so, you can take the examination at another time the same day.

An examination can be moved if another examination is planned at the same time, but the examiner must give their approval for their exam to be moved. Once the examiner has given their permission the exam administration should be contacted no later than 10 working days before the exam period at: tentamen.stodet@chalmers.se​

Please include the following information:

  • Your name and personal identity number.
  • Names and course codes (both exams).
  • Date of the exams.
  • The examiner's approval of moving the exam to morning or afternoon.

You must be registered for both exams

Double examinations are only granted for two separate exam sessions on the same day, and only of exams are otherwise scheduled at these times. 

On the day of your exam

You will receive an e-mail from the exam administration office detailing the place and time ca. 4 days before the exam date. You will either be placed in the ordinary exam room where you must stay for the duration of the exam before being escorted by an exam guard during the lunch break, or you will be placed in a private group room where you will take both exams. 

For exams taken at Campus Johanneberg you should register at the exam office 15 minutes before the exam to be assigned your room. 

For exams taken at Lindholmen you will find the exam hall posted at the main entrance of the Saga Building. Inform the exam guard that you are writing double examinations. 

When you have finished the first exam you must stay in the room for the duration of the exam. You may turn in your answer sheets early, but you cannot leave the hall. When you have turned in your exam you may collect material to study for the next exam. 

When the exam time is up you may take a break while monitored by the exam guard. Please note you should bring your own lunch. During the break all communication with other students is prohibited and you may not use your phone. After the break you will take the second exam.
