Examination plan

An overview of exam dates and exam locations is published on UiB's website at the beginning of each semester.


The examination results of an examination will be published on Studentweb later than three weeks after the examination date. For master's and master's theses, the examination deadline is 8 weeks.

Illness and examinations

Were you ill on the exam, or had another valid absence? You register this on UiB's page. The deadline is one week after the exam.

In connection with the corona pandemic, UiB has introduced temporary self-declaration in the event of a valid absence from an examination, cf. Temporary regulations on additions to regulations 16 February 2012 no. 872 on admission, studies, assessment and degrees at UiB. The self-notification scheme applies as long as the regulations apply.

When the exam results are published, you will see if you have received a valid absence from the exam. A valid absence does not count as an attempt at an exam.
