The circumstances used as grounds for the exemption must have been present at, or immediately prior to, the time for the examination, and the student must have had reasonable grounds for not having made use of the opportunity for withdrawal or a medical certificate for valid absence.

Regular examination (1) A regular examination will be conducted in the semester indicated in the programme description and course plan. (2) For handing in an examination without invigilation the University College may grant a postponement for up to 48 hours if the student immediately can document by a written physician s statement or other verifiable documentation that the delay is due to the student s own acute illness or illness, death, accident or similar involving a close relative, or other circumstances that are beyond the student s control.

Special requirements may be imposed in the course plan for taking a new examination. (3) When a course is removed from the teaching offered, the University College is obligated to arrange a new examination in the following semester. If there still remain students with the grade F/ fail or valid absence in a course that is no longer offered, a new examination will be arranged one last time in the subsequent semester.

Normally, an application shall be made for each semester, unless the need for special arrangements is permanent. The documentation must contain a description of the functional impairment and the need for special arrangements. (3) The special arrangements must not lead to a reduction in the academic requirements imposed for assessment of the achieved learning outcome. (4) Other rules on special arrangements are provided in supplementary provisions. Section Examination location (1) The examination location is normally the premises of the University College at the campus to which the student belongs. (2) Students who will be completing parts of their studies abroad and who wish to take an examination in the University College s courses must normally do this while they reside in Norway. (3) In special cases, a student may apply for an exemption to take an examination at a different examination location. An application, with the external examination location s contact information, must be received by the Examinations Office by the deadline for applying for special arrangements. (4) The student will be charged a fee which covers the additional expenses and must personally cover any expenses which the external examination location requires. The student must personally make an agreement with the external educational institution.
