Reserving an examination

If the examination is indeed available electronically, you can reserve a time and place using the students' electronic exam service.

  • The examination room is 4122 in the Pinni B Building and A203d in the Main Bulding. You can reserve a time to take your examination in these rooms.

  • The time period(s) during which it is possible to take the examination will be decided by the person who receives your exam. These times can be found in the reservations calendar of the electronic examinations service rooms, from which you can make a reservation for yourself on a machine that is free at the time you prefer.

  • Duration of electronic exams is determined on the basis of ECTS:
    • < 1 ECTS, ungraded diagnostic tests etc.: 15 min, 30min or 40 min
    • 1 ECTS: 1h (55 min)
    • 2-4 ECTS: 2hrs (1hrs 55min)
    • ≥ 5 ECTS: 4hrs (3hrs 55min)
    • Maturity tests: 2hrs (1h 55min)
  • After having discarded an exam, the student cannot automatically make a reservation for another attempt at the same exam. Instead s/he must request a separate permission to retake the exam by emailing
