Regulations and instructions for an exam
Students register for the faculty and departmental exams latest seven days before the exam at NettiOpsu – a virtual study register service. There are specific regulations concerning the Maturity test .
Exam candidates must arrive at the exam venue latest 15 minutes before the announced commencement of the exam. Supervisors advise exam candidates on the seating order in the exam hall. All bags, coats, etc. must be placed along the walls of the hall as exam candidates are only allowed to take pens, pencils, etc. and possibly some snacks with them into the exam. Exam candidates write the exam on the answer sheets provided. Candidates may not use answer sheets of their own.
During a faculty or departmental exam, the exam candidates are not allowed to leave the exam hall without permission from a supervisor before the envelopes containing the questions have been opened and until thirty minutes into the exam. The supervisor may let an exam candidate who has arrived late sit the exam if the candidate in question has arrived within thirty minutes of the exam commencing, and if no other exam candidate has left the room thus far.
If exam candidates are allowed to use a book or other material during the exam, this must be stated on the exam registration form. If there is no such information on the registration form, supervisors must note on the registration form all the aids (such as dictionaries, books, notes taken down during the lectures) that the exam candidate in question has had with him/her during the exam.
If an exam candidate is found guilty of cheating, the supervisors must ensure that the candidate’s exam is discontinued immediately and that all papers containing the questions and answers as well as all books, pieces of paper and other aids possibly found are seized and that the matter is reported to the Dean.
The supervisor in charge of the exam shall collect the test papers from the candidates when they leave the exam hall and ensure that the envelope with the question papers is returned for all candidates, even for those who have not answered any questions. Students should have their identification card to hand as the supervisors may ask for it. Candidates are expected to behave appropriately at the exam without causing disturbance. If the candidate is disturbing the other candidates s/he may be removed from the exam hall. The matter is reported to the Dean.
The maturity test based on the Master's thesis (Project) and the EDU s12 Final examination are taken in monthly exams arranged by the faculty.
Faculty exams will be arranged monthly, except in July. Each faculty exam lasts for four hours. Exams begin at 15:00 on Mondays. In June and August, exams begin at 12:00. Maximum two exams may be taken at the same faculty exam excluding the maturity test. The student should not take any other exams at the same time with the maturity test.
Departmental (resit) exams
Departmental (resit) exams will be arranged for each month on Mondays beginning at 17:00 and will last for two hours. Only one resit at a time may be taken at a departmental exam.
There is an exam to take at the EDU s2 Philosophical inquiry of issues in education course. If a student doesn’t pass the EDUs2 exam held at the end of the course then s/he can resit the exam at a departmental exam. The lecturer giving the lecture series will determine when resits will take place. There will be three exam dates, and they must take place within one calendar year from the end of the lecture series in question.
