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 fill in your credentials, 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 "Select exam" heading (see nr 2 in figure 2).
To solve this, try the following:

  • Check your internet connection
  • Check that you have filled in the correct credentials
  • Try clicking on the "Update exam list" button in the top-left corner (see nr 1 in figure 2)

Exams with Exam ID

Your teacher/exam supervisor will provide you with the Exam ID. Fill in the Exam ID under the "Exam ID" heading and click on the "Find exam" button to find the exam (see nr 3 in figure 2).

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 (see figure 10 and 11). This is a safety precaution made to prevent an accidental hand in of an exam.

Click on the "Hand in exam" buttons to proceed with handing in the exam.

After you have clicked on the last "OK" button, the exam is handed in.

The hand in is confirmed by a final pop-up box that says "Exam handed in successfully!". Press the "Exit application" button to exit the DigiExam client (see figure 12).

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.
