Exams at Malmö University

Student taking an exam

Here you will find information about written sit-in exams and take-home exams. Your course lecturer will inform you about which type of assesment applies to your exam. 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 the schedule administration system Kronox. Registration will open 21 days before the exam and close 7 days before the examination date. The same applies for re-sits. You will receive an email when exam registration opens for your course. If you have not signed up two days before the registration closes, you will receive a reminder via email.

  • Log in using your user name and password.
  • Under the tab ‘Activity registration’ you will find the exams that are open for registration.
  • You will receive a confirmation email when you register and deregister. 
  • If you have registered for an exam, you will receive an email two days before the exam date with a time and place for the examination.

Emails are sent to the email address you have registered in Ladok Student, so make sure that this address is correct. 

Problems with registration?

If you have difficulties registering in Kronox, you can email the exam administration at tentamen@mau.se. This has to be done before the registration period 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. The room will be announced on site. Changes can be made at short notice.

If you need special support

If you have been granted special support during exams (for example access to a computer or extra time), you must register your desired support in  Kronox no later than seven days before the exam. Click the 'Support' button after you have completed the application, and choose what type of support you need for each exam. If you have any questions, please email tentamen@mau.se Please include:

  • Your name
  • Your personal identity number
  • Course name
  • Date and time of the exam

If you are to write your exam in a separate room/smaller group, you will receive a confirmation from the exam administration 3-4 days before the exam. You will find the room number in the confirmation sent by the exam administration. You have to inform your lecturer about where the exam will be taken. 

If you have a disability, such as dyslexia, ADHD, or impaired vision, you can apply for special support based on your individual needs. Read more about our Disability Service here.
