Here you will find practical information about what happens on the examination day. How to find the examination hall, what applies in the hall, how you can prepare and other important things to know. We also describe what happens after the examination and when you can get your exam back.

Finding your examination hall

Examination halls are announced on noticeboards at both campuses one hour before the start of the examination. You can also find exam hall information as a general notice in Canvas.

On the Lindholmen Campus, information about exam halls will appear in the entrance hall of Hus Saga, at Hörselgången 4.

On the Johanneberg Campus, information about exam halls will appear on the following noticeboards:

  • Main entrance to Maskinhuset, at Hörsalsvägen 5.
  • Entrance to Samhällsbyggnadshuset, at Sven Hultins gata 6.
  • SB Multisal in Samhällsbyggnadshuset, at Sven Hultins gata 8.

Use the ChalmersMap app to find your exam hall.

Notes for those sitting adapted examinations

Students receiving educational support generally sit exams in the same building as ordinary examinations. You will be notified of the precise examination hall and what exam time you will have, in an email from the Examination Administration Office, three or four days before each exam. If you are unsure where to go, you can always consult the examination reception for ordinary examinations. Once you are there, the invigilators will know what support you need and will give you the appropriate assistance.

Rules and routines for examinations

Are you sitting a hall examination? Here are some things you need to know when sitting your exam.

  • Sign up for your exam – You must be signed up for an exam to sit it.
  • Arrive in plenty of time! – check-in starts 30 minutes before the exam starts.
  • Bring valid ID with you – (passport, Swedish national identity card, Swedish driving licence, Swedish SIS-marked ID card or ID card issued by a government body) and have it to hand when you enter the exam hall.
    Note that a LMA card issued by the Swedish Migration Agency is not a valid identity card.

  • Pay students’ union fee for the current semester – Remember that you need to have paid your students’ union fee for the current semester. You won’t need to show your students’ union card as it is checked automatically for all students signed up for the examination. However, if you have paid recently, you will need to show a valid union card/Mecenat card on your mobile phone or a receipt for the students’ union fee.
    Please note! This does not apply to students from the University of Gothenburg.

  • Bring your examination code to the exam hall – You must state your examination code on the exam rather than your personal identity number. The code must be written on each answer sheet that you hand in and on the cover of the exam paper. Your code is issued when you sign up in Ladok for students. If you have forgotten your code, you will be able to obtain it from the invigilator.
  • Only bring permitted aids to an examination
  • Switch off all prohibited electronic equipment such as mobile phones
  • You may bring snacks to the examination hall and eat them, provided this does not disturb the other candidates. For allergenic reasons, you may not bring peanuts, other legumes or almonds.

Digital-examinations on Chalmers’ campuses

You will write digital-exams on your laptop or on a computer in a computer room. The Chalmers system uses the Inspera Assessment cloud service for digital-exams. Exactly as for an ordinary exam, you must sign up to write a digital-exam. If you have not signed up for the examination session, you will have to sit the exam during the next session.

Examination, registration/deregistration in Ladok

To use Inspera, you must download Safe Exam Browser (SEB) to your computer. This is a locked browser that gives you access to Inspera but nothing else on the internet. Once your computer has SEB installed, Inspera will detect and calibrate your machine. When you open the exam in Inspera, it will be downloaded locally to your computer.

You can try by logging into Inspera and select Demo Exam with SEB.

After the exam session

The examiner has 15 working days to mark your exam. If the examiner is not ready within the allotted time, you can contact the assistant Head of Department  for undergraduate education at the department responsible for the course.

The results will be reported in Ladok, where you can view your grade. If you want to collect your exam, you can do so at the department that offered your course. Read more about this on the page below:

Collecting your marked examination

Once the examiner has marked your examination paper and the results have been reported in Ladok, you can collect the paper from the department that ran the course.

If you have written exam digitally, please log in to Inspera with your cid and cid password. You will find your graded exam under Archive, alongside the questions, your answers, your grades and any comments and feedback from your teacher. If you do not see your results, this may be a block caused by cookies. Try clearing your cookies or, if this doesn’t work, contact the Examination Administration Office.

If you wrote your exam at Lindholmen, it will be scanned and you will receive your marked paper at the email address you signed up in Ladok.

Cheating and disciplinary matters

Examinations are used to assess your performance and the extent to which you have met the requirements stipulated in the course and programme syllabus. Cheating means trying to mislead in an examination or other assessment and make you guilty of breaching the rules. Chalmers takes all attempts to mislead very seriously.

For further information on all rules applicable to summative assessments read more on the page:

Cheating and disciplinary matters

As a student, you must follow the rules of the university. This means, among other things, that cheating, or disrupting teaching or exams may lead to disciplinary action. Such a measure may be a warning or suspension. Suspicions are investigated by Chalmers’ Disciplinary Committee.
