Oral exam

An oral exam is a type of examination, where students are given questions or a problem to be answered or solved orally.

An oral exam usually takes 20 minutes or 30 minutes. It is conducted in a specified location and the specialist teacher and an examiner will assess the student's performence. The grade is given immediately afterwards.

The duration of the exam, whether any aids are allowed, and if there is preparation time is stated in the individual course descriptions in the Course Catalogue.

The most common oral exam form is the 20 minutes oral exam without aids and prepation time.

Time and place of the exam is announced on the Examination plans website. Approximately six days prior to the exam date, a list with the order of the students who have registered for the exam will be posted at the Examination plans website.

It is always important to meet up in good time for an oral exam. It is the student's own responsibility to be present when called for the exam. For instance, if fellow students decide not to show up for the exam it will bring the order of students forward.

Questions regarding examinations should be directed to the specialist teacher or exam administrator Marianne Tange.
