Most of the assignments are handed in through Inspera, and the system will generate a front page containing the course code, your candidate number, etc.
Please beware that the submission process consists of two steps: First you have to upload the (correct!) file, then you have to confirm the submission.

Examinations using Inspera
Remember to plan enough time for the submission process.
Before handing in: Check that it is the right exam, and that you have uploaded the correct file!
You do not have to write your candidate number in your paper - Inspera will automatically retrieve this.
Your exam will be available in the archive after the exam has ended. Before the submission deadline, you will see a confirmation of your submission, but you will not be able to see a copy of the exam before the submission deadline has expired.
Please note: If the exam is set up so that you can either work individually or in pairs/groups, the exam in Inspera will be set up as a group exam. This means that also those of you working on your own need to create a "group" (consisting only of yourself) in Inspera before submitting the exam.
When submitting your Bachelor ‘s Thesis, please use Inspera.
