Adjustments on exams/submissions

You can have adjustments on your exams/submissions such as for example extended time, the possibility to sit in a smaller exam room etc.

As a student you are responsible to apply for adjustment at each exam, to receive the support you have been granted and wish to have.

To apply for adjustments on your written home exam, you need to contact the responsible teacher/examiner at the beginning of the course. It is up to the examinator to descide upon adjustments.
