Find exam

Once inside the Digiexam client/app, exams can be found either by Exam ID or in the Active exams section (group exams), depending on how the exam has been started by your teacher (figure 4).

Group exams

A group exam is an exam that has been planned for a specific group of students. As a student, you only need to log in, and Digiexam will find the planned exams you are eligible to take. If no exam is visible when you start the Digiexam client, and you know there should be a planned exam, you will get a message under the Active exams section.
To solve this, try the following:

  • Check your internet connection
  • Check that you have filled in the correct credentials
  • Try clicking on the arrows next to Active exams to update the exam list.


Exams with Exam ID

Your teacher/exam supervisor will provide you with the Exam ID. Fill in the Exam ID under the Exam ID section and click on the Find exam button to find the exam (figure 5).

Hand in exam

When you are ready to hand in your exam, press the Hand in exam and exit button in the top-right corner.

When you press the Hand in exam and exit button you will be asked if you want to finish the examination twice (figure 13). This is a safety precaution made to prevent an accidental hand-in of an exam.

Click on the button Hand in exam button to proceed with handing in the exam.

The hand-in is confirmed by a final pop-up box that says Your exam has been handed in. Press the Exit application button to exit the Digiexam client/app (figure 15).

It is important that you also Exit application. This is due to that the application locks the other systems on your device and only when you choose Exit application, Digiexam will be closed and unlocks the other functions on your device.
