To use your own computer in digital exams

For most types of digital exam is it possible to use your own computer. There are exceptions, as programming exams, but development to achieve this is in progress.

It is of great importance to us that many students want to test to use their own computer in the exam. If you want to test it, you must report this separately to your teacher.

You shall also, as always, do an exam registration, but there it is not yet any possibility to specify that you want to use your own computer.

What to consider when you use your own computer in digital exams

  • Your computer must be fully charged because the availability of power outlets is limited.

  • You must install the Safe Exam Browser (SEB) on your computer before you come to the exam room. SEB closes down resources on your computer, and online resources. Check before each exam that you have the latest version installed. SEB is available for Windows (7.8 and 10) and Mac OSX (10:10 or higher) Download SEB here: http://bit.ly/2jQJWA8

  • Remember to close SEB when you submitted your exam. You will be asked if you want to close SEB, answer Yes. 

  • If your computer loses the connection to the network, or for any other reason, stops working during the exam, there is spare computer to borrow in the exam room. If your computer loses the connection to the network, wait 5 minutes and follow the instructions in the manual. If the network doesn´t reconnects successfully, please contact the invigilator who will help you change computer. Your answers are saved 1 time / 10 seconds so you can continue where you stopped. 

  • If you have any further interruption due to technical problems, you can get extra time to complete the exam.

  • It is not possible to use Internet Explorer in combination with SEB

SEB must be closed when you are going to do the exam. Digital exam opens SEB.
