Below, we have gathered information on how examinations are handled at The Department of Computer Science- and Engineering. It's important that you, as a student at the department, read this information well before the examination.

Examination periods

The written hall examinations of Department of Computer Science and Engineering are partly handled by the examination administration at Chalmers. A consequence of this is that the examinations are collected in examination periods, partly for ordinary examinations  (which occurs in the end of each course) and partly for re-examinations (opportunities for the student to write examinations for courses that haven't been passed). When each examination period occurs, is stated in Chalmers' academic year.

Examination schedule

Before each examination period an examination schedule is published. It contains the department's courses that will have an examination during the period.

Examination schedules are published as PDF-files in the top of the column to the right on this page.


Most examinations are 4 hours long and are written either in the morning (FM; 08:30-12:30) or in the afternoon (EM; 14:00-18:00).

Examination rooms

In the exam schedule there are shortenings for in which room the examination will be held. Campus Johanneberg is only a temporary indication until the examination has been given a room. You will find information about each examinations specific room in the entrance of the building specified in the exam schedule. On Campus Lindholmen you will find the information in the entrance of the Saga building.

E = rooms in the EDIT-building

Ek = rooms at Eklandagatan 86, floor 4

H = rooms on Hörsalsvägen (yellow brick building)

J = Campus Johanneberg

L = Campus Lindholmen

M = rooms in Maskinhuset (red brick building on Hörsalsvägen)

SB = SB Multi-sal (entrance from Sven Hultins gata 8)

V = rooms in V-house

You find directions and maps over our campuses here.

Double exam

If you have two examinations occuring at the same time, then you can ask for permission to do both (Chalmers rules for examination, chapter 2.5). This means that you will write the examinations following each other, without leaving the exam hall. 

If you wish to request this possibility, then you will need to contact tentamen.stodet@chalmers.se not later than 10 days before the exam period begins. Then it is up to the examiner and the exam administration to decide if it possible to accomplish. 

Examination sign-up

Each examinaton period has a sign-up period connected to it. When each sign-up period occurs, is stated in Chalmers' academic year.

Signing up is mandatory on all of the department's written exams and is done at Ladok Online. If you don't see the examination in the list over suggested examinations it can depend on that you aren't registered on the course the actual term or that the sign-up period isn't open, because it hasn't started or because it has ended. If you want to write a re-examination on a course that you have been registered on an earlier term, send an e-mail to student_office.cse@chalmers.se.

If you have forgotten to sign up, you will not be given the opportunity to write the exam this period.

During the examination

All of the department's written examinations are handled by Chalmers' Examination Administration. That means that you, as an examinee, need to follow some of Chalmers' regulations for examination (section 3.1.3-3.1.10). Disciplinary measures connected to written examinations are handled by University of Gothenburg under paragraph 13-14 in Rules for Written Examinations. Study the sections closely before your examination.

It's important that you fill in the examination's cover sheet correctly. As a GU-student you write the course's GU-code. Also, ensure that you write clearly in the personal details fields. It eases the administration and accelerates the reporting of your examination.

Please notice that you need a valid ID to write the examination.

After the examination

After the examination, the following happens:

  1. The examination is corrected anonymously by the teacher.
  2. The examination is unanonymized and sorted by the study administration.
  3. A grading protocol is printed.
  4. The teacher fills in the grade and in some cases the points in the grading protocol.
  5. The study administration fills in the information in Ladok and prints an archive list.
  6. The examiner (often the same teacher that has corrected the examination) controls and signs the archive list.
  7. The grade goes sharply into Ladok and becomes visible for the student.
  8. The examination becomes available to review and collect. This can be done at the examination's review opportunity or at the student office.
