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 working 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 the teacher or examiner directly.

Special Needs

Contact the examination coordinators Anita Lidfors or Roger Westlund for help with questions if you have any special needs that relate to the taking of an examination.

Examination Timetable

Online Examination on Connect

If you are going to take an examination in Connect, then you need to be aware of the rules:

  • You need to use an external webcamera so that the examination invigilator can see both you and your screen. This means that your camera needs to be placed at an angle behind you and directed at the screen.
  • You need to have a headset (headphones) so that you can hear the examinator invigilator throughout the examination. The microphone needs to be off so that you do not disturb others.
  • Communicate with the examination invigilator using the written chat function.
  • Log into the examination room at the latest 20 minutes before the examination begins. Be sure to have photo ID available so that you can identify yourself.
  • Be sure that the lighting is strong enough so that you are visible in the camera at all times.
  • Be sure you can be reached by your telephone that has the number that you submitted when you registered on My Pages: this is in case the examination invigilator needs to contact you - for example, if you should leave the room.
  • Do not leave the examination room without asking the examination invigilator for permission: this applies both while you are taking the examination and after you have submitted your examination. If you are away for more than five minutes, your examination will not be valid.

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

To resit an examination, you must still be registered in the course. You can see your course registrations in 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.

Teachers sometimes offer resit examinations known as "uppsamlingstentan" in August. However, this is up to the teacher to decide on.

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.

These are the four grading scales that we use at Dalarna University:

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.
