Note: You need to present an application for a special examination arrangement for every ordinary examination period.
However, candidates with chronic conditions may be exempted from applying every semester.
If you have been granted a special examination arrangement for a longer period of time, you are responsible for contacting the examination office if you plan to remain a student beyond the date specified in the letter granting you the special examination arrangement. You will receive the answer to your application by e-mail to your student e-mail address.
If the need for a special examination arrangement should arise after the deadline, please contact the Examination Office.
Special examination arrangements when the examination is digital
If you would prefer not to use a computer for your digital examination, you may apply to write by hand using pen and paper instead of a computer. Please, use the application form here on this page.
If you have been granted the use of a computer with spell check software as a special examination arrangement, you will need to take your examination in one of UIA’s computer labs regardless of whether your examination is digital or not.
However, if you have been granted the use of a computer without spell check software, you will be placed in a computer lab only if the examination is a “pen and paper examination”. For digital examinations, you need to bring your own laptop like all the other students. (if you for special reasons need to sit in a computer lab also when the examination is digital, please contact the Examination Office)
What do I do if I have two exams on the same day?
You have two options:
You may apply for a valid excuse for absence for one of the examinations provided that you have passed all the pre-requisites required to take the examination. A valid excuse for absence does not count as an attempt and you may register for the postponed examination that takes place the following semester
You may apply to have both examinations on the same day.
For both options, please apply by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than four weeks prior to the date of the examination.
