Each department has a responsibility to make agreements on censorship, and also collect necessary information from an external examiner. The collected information includes contact information, birth- and personal number and a mailing address for the exam answers. When the departments and faculties have finished collecting and registering the information, the examination office sends out contracts to all registered as external examiners.
NB! UiA uses e-mail to send contracts. It is therefore important that the registered e-mail address is updated regularly.
Please notice that the appointment also concerns potential new and postponed exams the following semester according to Regulations governing studies and examinations at UiA §37. Potential new and postponed exams will be arranged in the midst of the following term. If the exam is not arranged or is deleted, there will be no remuneration for this. It is not possible to bill from own businesses. All censorship will be paid as salary from UiA.
About the censorship
The University of Agder uses letter grades, A – E for passing grades and F for not passed. For some exceptions the grades passed/not passed are used. The examiners who will use passed/not passed will be informed of this.
The deadline is 18 working days (3 weeks) after the examination date. This must be adhered to unless the board of the University of Agder has set a different deadline.
Candidates who ask for it, have the right to an explanation. Explanation of the censorship decision is not remunerated. The deadline for explanation is at latest one week after the publication of the censorship. Explanation can be given verbally or in writing according to the examiners wish.
In subjects with digital examination, the examiner will get access to the electronic examination answers. If a paper copy is requested, the examiner must take care of this. The university uses self-copying paper in the subjects who do not use digital examination. We ask the examiners to keep these papers until the deadline for requesting an explanation is passed and then shred them.
Current instructions are in the following link: Instructions for external/internal examiner.
It is not possible to bill from own businesses. All censorship will be paid as salary from UiA. Remuneration forms are included with the examination answers, and are to be signed by the examiner, and returned to UiA.
General regulations for the examiner’s remuneration can be found on the back of the remuneration form.
