Special examination arrangements

If you have a disability or a health problem which leads to significant inconvenience in the examination situation, you may apply for special examination arrangements.

What can you apply for?

The faculty decides which special arrangements you may be granted based on information in the application. Special arrangements should not be so extensive that they provide an advantage in relation to other students. This means that you will not necessarily be granted the arrangement you have applied for

For example, you may apply for:

  • Extra time if your disability results in your working more slowly.
  • Extra time for mothers who are breastfeeding.
  • An opportunity to rest or move around during the examination.
  • Aids such as software and dictaphones.
  • Bench for resting, reading lamp, adjustable chair or table.
  • An opportunity to sit in a smaller room.

If you are having a school exam in Inspera and need special tools such as spell check, image enhancement or text reading, you should apply for special examination arrangements.


Contact your faculty's information centre.

Allergy and exams

Illness after the deadline

Should you become ill or suffer an injury after the deadline, you must contact your faculty's information centre as soon as possible.

Application form

  1. Fill in the application form (pdf).
  2. Ask for a documentation on disability from your doctor/specialist: documentation form (pdf).
  3. If your application concerns dyslexia, dyscalculia or dysgraphia, you must submit documentation from a speech therapist/specialist.

Where do I send the application?
