What are my rights?

Rules and procedures relating to special arrangements in connection with examinations are stipulated in Regulations Relating to Studies and Examinations at OsloMet and Guidelines for Processing Applications Relating to Special Arrangements at OsloMet.

“Candidates who due to medical or other reasons need special arrangements in connection with an examination or need to apply for an alternative form of assessment, must apply within the appointed deadlines. The need for special arrangements must be documented with a medical certificate or a certificate from other relevant experts”. (cf. Regulations § 6-9)

The purpose of special arrangements is to compensate for the disadvantage the disability brings about, and at the same time ensure that the students, to the greatest possible extent, are tested on equal terms. The special arrangement shall not be so comprehensive that it will entail any advantages compared to other students.

Alternative form of examination

If you will struggle with completing an examination in its original form due to a chronic condition, you may apply for an alternative form of examination (cf. Regulations § 6-9). Please contact the Information Centre at your faculty or the Service Centre at Kjeller for more information.
