Booking of exam locations during periods of high demand

The Exam Service Office shall endeavour to minimise the use of external premises. During certain periods the demand for exam rooms is very great. We therefore wish to remind you of the applicable booking rules:

  • You must provide at least one alternative date.
  • Regular exams will be given priority over re-exams.
  • In the event of competition, the party that made the earliest order will be prioritised.
  • Each exam room is typically divided into two sessions, which start at 9 o'clock and 14:00 respectively. However, these times may be altered in the event of a written exam lasting longer than four hours.

See submitted orders/bookings

You can review your bookings (both preliminary and planned ones) directly in the TimeEdit booking system. You will find preliminary bookings under "incoming exam orders", and confirmed bookings may be found under "exam schedule - planned".

The preliminary bookings are registered between 6:00-7:00 on the day on which you wish to schedule your exam; these times are subject to change.

Additions or cancellations

If you need to change the number of places, contact the Exam Service Office as soon as possible and refer to the correct booking number.

Additional orders may be made, subject to availability. Cancellations may be adjusted via the sign-up sheet. If a cancellation is made less than 5 days prior to the written exam, the department will be billed for the full cost of the exam.
