  • Apply for special arrangements

    This is how you apply

    The deadline to apply for special arrangements has now expired. If you have an illness/injury which has occurred acutely after the deadline, please contact the Examination Office eksamen@oslomet.no for instructions.

    Deadlines for applying

    • Examination in the autumn semester: 1 September. Application form opens 1 August
    • Examination in the spring semester: 1 February. Application form opens 1 January


    You must have a certificate from a doctor or other expert stating which measures are being applied for and documenting your need. The documentation must contain information on the following:

    • The student's full name, birth and social security number
    • Signature and stamp from the doctor
    • Description of illness and/or functional impairment and what limitations this entails in the exam situation
    • Recommended facilitation measures
    • If the condition is chronic

    If you apply for special arrangements due to reading and writing difficulties, you must have a supplementary report from an expert.

    Documentation from a doctor/expert is considered indicative and must be taken into account, but is not binding. The special arrangements granted will not always be the one the student has applied for. A diagnosis in itself does not provide a basis for a specific type of special arrangement.

    When will you receive an answer?

    You will receive a written response within 15 working days of the application deadline. You can also see the decision on Studentweb under "Upcoming events" or under "Active courses."

  • Faculty examination regulations

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

  • Rules and procedures for special examination arrangements

    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.
