Exams at Malmö University


Here you will find information about written sit-in exams and take-home exams. The lecturer on the course will inform you about which type of assesment that applies. Written sit-in exams take place at a certain location and time, while take-home exams are to be completed at home and submitted before a specified deadline. 

Exam registration

You are required to register for all sit-in exams at Malmö University. If you have not registered on time, you will not be permitted to take the exam and must wait for a re-sit. Almost all written sit-in exams at the university take place at Gäddan (G8).

How to register

Register for a written sit-in exam by logging into schedule administration system Kronox. The registration will open 21 days before the exam and close 7 days before the examination date. The same applies for re-sits.

  • Log in using your user name and password.
  • Under the tab ‘Exams’ you will find the exams which are open for registration.

Problems with registration?

If you have difficulties registering in Kronox you can email the exam administration at tentamen@mah.se. This also has to be done before the registration is closed, no less than seven days before the examination date. The email should include your name, personal identity number, course name and the exam date.

Check the time and place of the exam

Before the exam, it is important that you check to make sure you have the right building and time for the exam. Room will be announced on site.  Changes can be made at short notice.
