Exam Registration
You have to approve the education plan and pay the semester fee every semester. You do this in StudentWeb. The deadline is September 1st for the Autumn semester, and February 1st for the Spring semester.
Make sure that you are signed up for exams in your courses each semester. Log in to StudentWeb and choose the tab «My active courses». Contact the student administration if there are errors in your exam registration.
 
Exam Language
The exam answer should normally be in English or Norwegian, according to the language of instruction. The course description gives more information on what language is used.
 
Course Requirements/Exam Requirements
Many subjects have compulsory requirements that have to be approved before you can take the exam. Course requirements are compulsory requirements that have to be approved before you can take the exam, like mandatory attendance, mid term papers, essay drafts etc. These are found in the course description, and it is your responsibility to stay informed about them.
 

Exam Forms
The course description describes which exam form applies to your course, and how much time you have at your disposal. Note that there might be course requirements in addition to the final examination, and that the examination may consist of more than one test. 

Previous Exam Questions
Exam questions from previous semesters are posted in the Exam Room on Fronter. These can help you know what to expect on your exam.
 
Grades
The results are available online (StudentWeb) approx. three weeks after the examination. Release dates are found in the course descriptions.
 
Withdrawal deadline/Exam attempts
You have the right to three exam attempts for every course.
It counts as one exam attempt if you do not show up for an exam that you are registered for. It is therefore important that you withdraw from registered exams that you do not plan to take. Note that there are deadlines for withdrawals (see the course description).
You withdraw from exams on StudentWeb, by choosing the tab My active courses. Mark the course you wish to withdraw from, click the button «Withdraw from exam» and follow the further instructions.
