Examinations

Register for an Examination

You register for examinations on My Pages. Examination registration normally opens one month before the examination and you must register at the latest 10 days prior to the examination day. You will receive a confirmation of registration to your university email account: if you do not, then you are not registered. You cannot register late.

Questions About Examinations

If you have questions about an examination, please contact your teacher.

Examination Timetable

Examination ID

You must take photo ID with you to all examinations: you can use your university keycard for this purpose.

Examination Results

After your examination has been corrected, the results are scanned directly to My Pages. You will receive your corrected examination as a PDF that you can print out.

Resit an Examination

You can resit an examination that you failed or that you did not register for. You must be registered in a course for a resit. You can see which courses you are registered in on My Pages. Contact a study administrator if you find you are not registered in a course. After this, you can register to resit an examination.

Old Examination Papers

Previous examination papers are useful for revision purposes: you can see the examination structure and the kinds of questions you will be asked. You can find previous examinations for your course(s) on My Pages.

Dalarna University implements four different grading scales in its courses. Course syllabi describe which is used: these you can find on our website. The grading scales are also explained at the bottom of your Transcript of Records.

Grading and Credit Systems

Grading System

  • DU uses the ECTS Grading Scale (historical grade distribution) as recommended by the ECTS Users' Guide.
  • Students can receive a Transcript of Records showing the historical distribution of awarded grades since the course was established.
    Grade distribution will not be shown for courses that have been running for fewer than two years.
  • ECTS Grades A-F will no longer be used for grade conversion.

When you request recognition of previous studies from other institutions, credits are registered but not the grades.

Credit System

Swedish universities use a credit system for first-cycle (undergraduate) and second-cycle (graduate) studies.

  • 1 Swedish credit = 1 ECTS credit
  • 1.5 Swedish credits = one week's full-time studies (approx. 40 study hours)
  • One academic year = two semesters (5 months each) or 60 credits
  • Full-time students take 30 Swedish credits/semester (e.g. 4 x 7.5 credit courses).

Students must obtain permission to take more than 45 Swedish credits/semester. (DU students can register for 45 credits only in any given semester.)
