There are various ways of examining the elements of a study programme, i.e. various ways of assessing student performance. This can be done through written exams, take-home exams, written assignments, oral presentations, papers or laboratory work. You can read about the forms of examination for your study programme in the relevant course syllabi.
Written exams on Campus
Scheduled exam sessions are entered in the timetable for your course. The venue for the exam and other important information is added to the course timetable at the latest two days before the exam session. The timetable for the day is displayed on two screens in Building 7, one for each School.
You must always register for a written exam on Campus, both ordinary sessions and re-exams, at the latest 14 days before the exam session, see the manual "Signing up for written exams at Kristianstad University" available under related documents and on my pages. To sign up for an exam, log in to My study information via your web browser (www.hkr.se/mypages). For Android and iPhone, there is an app called KronoX.
If you have forgotten to register in time, you can add your name to a waiting list in the exam room just before the session starts and wait outside for 30 minutes. Signed up students take precedence and are allowed in up to 30 minutes late. After that, the invigilator allows any waiting students in, according to the order in which they appear on the waiting list.
How many times may I re-take an exam on my course?
There is usually no limit to the number of re-exams you can attempt as long as your course syllabus is still valid. If there is a limit, it will be stated in the course syllabus.
When an examination requires major resources, the number of permitted re-exams may be limited. This applies to tests which involve practical elements such as laboratory work or study visits. In such cases, you are entitled to a maximum of five re-exams.
If you have not passed the exam after two attempts, you are entitled to request a change of examiner. This request is to be addressed to the head of the School. Regarding work placements, the University has the right to further limit the number of exam sessions allowed. Any limits are stated in the course syllabus. Read more in the Rules on responsibility for courses and examination.
Before your first exam session, it is important that you read our rules and procedures:
