All exams at Jönköping University are coordinated by the Exams Group within Educational Support at University Services.

Exam registration

Register via StudentLadok External link, opens in new window. or via the JU Mobile app no later than 10 days before the exam. If you register via JU Mobile, you will receive a confirmation via email.

Exam registrations that are done via StudentLadok do not generate a confirmation email or notification.

Place/exam halls are added continuously in StudentLadok, JU Mobile and in the exam schedule for each faculty a few days before the exam.

During exam

During the exam, you must be able to show a valid physical ID.

Accepted IDs are:

  • Valid Swedish driver’s license
  • Valid Swedish passport
  • Valid Swedish national ID card
  • Valid JU card marked with “Identity Card”
  • Valid foreign passport, needs to be plastic wrapped and be in either English, French, or Spanish

(ref. External link, opens in new window.)

Identification with Mobile BankID or Freja eID+ does not constitute physical identification and is therefore not accepted as valid identification documents during exams.

Without an approved ID, you are not allowed to do the examination and you will be dismissed from the exam hall. Make sure to put your ID on the desk so that the invigilators have easy access to it. Keep the ID card on the desk during the whole examination.

(the condition is that your exam must coincide with an exam at JU and that there are free seats in the exam hall).

This service is only offered for Swedish institutions and does only apply for paper-based exams.

Pseudonymization of exams

JU have adopted pseudonymisation of the exam process for all paper-based exams and all e-exams in Inspera. This implies that students perform their exams without their personal identity (name, civic number) being known to the grader/examiner. Your identity will be concealed until the results have been reported to Ladok.

In order to maintain this anonymous chain of information, it is of major importance that you as a student, do not engage in any conversation directly with your teachers, regarding your exam before the results are reported.

Should there be an imminent need to inform your teachers of an obvious inadequacy or error, it's important to uphold the routes of contact according to the information below:

If the error occurs during the exam:

Contact the invigilators on site. They will ensure that your information reaches the course coordinator

If the error is found after the exam, but before the results have been reported to Ladok:

Contact Service Center, who will ensure your information reaches the course coordinator, without any personal information being disclosed. You may not contact any of your teachers directly during this state of affairs. The Service Center will give you feedback from your teachers.

If questions arise concerning the above, please contact Service Center via the Case Management System External link, opens in new window.
