  • Procedures for unforeseen events

    • You must ensure that you have up-to-date/functioning PC equipment and internet access.
    • Do not have more than one Inspera tab open on your working PC.
    • If the screen freezes or hangs, it is recommended to try to close the browser and try another browser. If this does not help, restart the PC and open Inspera again. See here which browsers and operating systems are supported by Inspera (support.inspera.com). If you have an exam where you write your answers directly into the test in Inspera, the text/answers last saved in your answer in Inspera will still be in your test. This applies to both text answers and multiple-choice answers.

    If something completely extraordinary happens during the examination and you cannot submit your answer because of this, contact the study administration at your faculty.

    In the event of power outages, problems with internet access, fire alarms etc. that prevent you from delivering your answer, you must get a confirmation of this from the internet provider, landlord/housing association, etc. that confirms what has happened. Confirmation must be sent to your faculty no later than one week after the exam day. It will then be up to your faculty to decide whether you will be entitled to a new/postponed exam in the current subject.

    Extended time will not be given as compensation for lost exam time due to technical problems with own equipment/network access or similar incidents.

  • My exam uses Office Lens

    If your exam require you to use Office Lens, we recommend you to test this in advance. Read the guides for Office Lens on Microsoft's website. We recommend testing so that you can see that the quality is good enough ahead of the exam. You can do several things to improve the quality of the image:

    • Take the picture in a well-lit room
    • Keep the camera as still as possible when taking the picture
    • Remember that you can crop the image after it is taken
    • Remember that you can take several photos and choose the one you are most happy with afterwards

    Finally, we recommend that you take your time taking and uploading photos. The image upload can take a long time if the file is large.

  • Faculty examination regulation

    Also check additional information under your faculty. If you cannot find additional information for your course or your faculty, joint examination information applies.
