Oral exams

Information about oral exams.


Exam dates can be found on StudentWeb and in the course catalogue. A list of all exams is available here.


The exam location and the exact time of the exam are published on the front page of StudentWeb (see the information column), no later than three days before the exam. Normally it is published at least one week before the exam. This information will also be available in the MF reception on the day of the exam.

The use of examination support material is permitted on some oral exams. Please confer the top of the course description to see if it applies to your exam. See the overview of allowed support material for exams (pdf) for more information. List F, F2 and F3 deal with courses taught in English.

Infection prevention measures and what to do if you get ill

Guidelines in effect for infection prevention and control at MF in general is available here. Below you can find information directly related to exams. This information may change if the infection situation changes.


Who can meet for the exam?

You can not meet for the exam if:

  • You have a confirmed covid-19 infection. If so, you must be in isolation.
  • Have symptoms of respiratory infection. Information of possible symptoms and testing is available here. However, if you experience discomforts that occurs regularly during autum/winter and these symptoms are not accompanied by a feeling of illness, you can meet for the exam. One example is sore mucuous membranes, which again can cause sneezing, or a runny nose when coming in from the cold. As long as this is not accompanied by a feeling of illness, it is not necessarily a symptom of respiratory tract infection. But be avare of any other symptoms if this applies to you.
  • You are in quarantine or isolation.
  • Have been tested for COVID-19 and are awaiting results.

If one of these points apply to you, you must submit a self-notification form explaining your absence instead of meeting for the exam. This will give you the option to register for the deferred exam in January. The self-notification form for absence on exams is available here.

Alternatively, you may be able to take the exam on zoom. If you wish to do this, contact: exam@mf.no

You can meet for the exam if:

  • You have had a respiratory tract infection, but have been free of symptoms for 24 hours.
  • A person you live with have symptoms for respiratory tract infection, but not confirmed covid-19. If you experience symptoms during the exam, you must however go home.
  • You have respiratory problems due to allergies. Please inform the examination invigilators upon arrival about this.
  • You have been infected by covid-19 illness, but are now healthy, and a doctor has lifted your isolation requirement.
