Examination

Changes due to the transition to distance education

From 18 March all teaching and examination at the university will be conducted as distance education.

The goal is for all exams to be given the same day and time as already announced. Due to the transition to distance education, changes may occur. We do not know exactly what form every exam will take. It may take a while before all information is available. You will find the latest information on the course's learning platform.

Registration for the exam takes place as usual through the Student Portal/Ladok no later than 12 days before the exam. Those registered for an exam will be contacted via their student email in case of any changes.

If you have any questions, please contact info@fek.uu.se

Exam dates

Registration to the written examinations

You must always register to the examination, regardless of whether it is an ordinary examination or a re-examination. You register through the Student Portal no later than 12 days before the exam. You are strongly recommended to register to the exam as soon as it is possible and not wait until the deadline. If you have not been registered you are not allowed to take the examination. If you need any help with the registration you can contact the Student Service Office at the Department of Business Studies, no later than 12 days before the exam.

When you get to the examination hall you need to bring a valid identification card. The written exams are anonymous, which means that you will get an anonymity code so the teacher who is marking the exam cannot see who has written the exam.

General information regarding the written examinations at Uppsala University can be found at their website.

How to see your results and answers

When the results from the course have been reported you can see these in the Student Portal. After the results have been reported you can collect your written answers at Ekonomikum's reception. Remember to bring your identification card. Your answers will be saved for two years, if you haven’t collected them.

Reconsideration of a decision on a grade

If you find that you have received an incorrect grade or that the decision on a grade has been made in an improper way you can ask for a reconsideration of a decision on a grade.  Reassessment can occur because of new facts, or if the grade is obviously incorrect and if the change can be done quickly and easily. It is not about regrading or assess the exam again, but correcting obvious errors.

The application form for reconsideration of a grade (Pdf) is handed in to the reception desk at Ekonomikum. If your application concerns an E-examination your reconsideration can be sent directly to the Course Administration, info@fek.uu.se. All information needed, date, course code, and anonymity number (ID) can be found under My Test on https://exam.uu.se/

If you have sent in a request considering reconsideration to the examiner, without getting it reconsidered, you can contact the Ombudsmen for Grading Issues at Uppsala University. Ombudsmen for grading issues investigate if the assessment process has been followed properly. Please note that the Ombudsmen cannot change any decisions on a grade taken by the examiner, they investigate the process and leave a written opinion to the department.

New Course Literature

Please note that the course literature can be changed regularly, in form of new editions, books and articles. Therefore we recommend that you complete the course the same term as you started it. That the course literature has changed is not a reason to require an extra exam.

Cheating and Plagiarism

According to the Higher Education Ordinance Disciplinary measures may be invoked against students who:

  1. by prohibited aids or other means attempt to deceive during examinations or when academic work is otherwise assessed
  2. disrupt or obstruct teaching, tests or other activities within the framework of studies at the institution of higher education

If an invigilator suspects that a candidate is attempting with unauthorised materials or items or in some other manner to deceive or cheat during the examination he/she will note down the candidate’s name and the names of any witnesses, request the candidate to hand over any evidential material and make a written report of the incident to the teacher responsible for the examination. The Institution will then submit a formal report to the Vice-Chancellor, who can refer the matter to the Disciplinary Board. The decision of the board may be to issue a warning or to suspend the student from studies for a certain period. You can read more about Cheating and Plagiarism on Uppsala University's website.

Finishing a discontinued course

When a course is discontinued it can still be possible to finish it by doing an exam. On our site about discontinued courses you can see if it is still possible to finish a course or not.
