INDIVIDUAL ARRANGEMENTS AND ADDITIONAL TIME FOR EXAMINATIONS

For example, in exams the individual study arrangements can be:

  • additional time for examinations
  • use of separate exam room

If you need the individual study arrangements in examinations

1. If you already have a documented diagnosis or expert opinion

  • See the exam specific instructions below

2. If you do not already have a documented diagnosis or expert opinion, or you wish to receive consultation regarding the need of individual study arrangements in exams

 

Paper exam

In order to receive the individual study arrangements, contact tenttivalvonta@lut.fi at least 1,5 weeks before the examination date. In the email, provide following information: your contact information, course name and course code along with the documented expert opinion.

In a case of a paper exam, the examination time is three hours. The additional examination time provided for the paper exam can be one hour.

Exam-examination

In order to receive the individual study arrangements, contact tenttivalvonta@lut.fi at least 1,5 weeks before the examination date. In the email, provide following information: your contact information, course name and course code along with the documented expert opinion.

The length of Exam-examination varies from hour to three hours.

  • If the length of the examination is one hour, additional time can be provided for one hour
  • If the length of the examination is from two to three hours, additional time can be provided for two hours

Note! If the full length of the Exam-examination exceeds three hours, the exam needs to be done in two parts. The student can choose if they want to take a break between these two. However, taking the break is recommended since there is no other way a student can take a break from the Exam-examination.

Moodle-examination

In Moodle-examination, only the agreement between the teacher in charge and a student is needed. The teacher in charge is responsible for the technical application of the additional time for examination in Moodle. The student may need additional time due to learning difficulties or ADHD, for example. If there are questions, the teacher can consult LUT's study psychologists.

The length of Moodle-examination varies from hour to three hours.

  • If the length of the examination is one hour, additional time can be provided for one hour
  • If the length of the examination is from two to three hours, additional time can be provided for two hours
