Written exams and digital written exams

Many written exams are now digital exams, meaning that you have to use a computer in stead of pen and paper. To find out if your written exam is a digital exam you can check UiB's exam pages.

Information about digital exams

UiB uses a browser based service called Inspera Assessment as a technical solution for digital examination. Students have to bring their own computers to the exam. Written exam in Inspera is set up with a secure browser to block access to files on your computer and to the Internet during the exam. It is your responsibility to ensure that this browser is installed on your machine before the examination day.

Practical information on digital exams (including information on Safe Exam Browser and how to apply for using a UiB computer during exam) can be found here: http://www.uib.no/digitaleksamen

You logon to Inspera with your UiB username and password at https://uib.inspera.no/ (select Feide). After you open the Demo test called 'Demotest med sikker nettleser (SEB)' inside Inspera, you can install the Safe Exam Browser. You can set English as your default language in Inspera via the wheel in the upper right corner.

Students with reading and writing difficulties are advised to apply for Special Arrangements for Examinations as usual.

If you fail to prepare for digital examination as explained above, you might have to complete the examination using pen and paper following ordinary procedures for written examinations. This might also be the case if we experience unforeseen technical problems that cannot be solved during the exam, with a possible extension of the examination time.

If you have any questions, please contact your local student administration / info center at your faculty / or on https://bs.uib.no/ (select 'digital eksamen' in the left menu) and we will email you as quickly as possible.
