Dates for written examination

In the exam schedule you will find the exam dates for the different subjects. Dates for centrally administered written exams can be found by clicking on this link Administer exams (udir.no)

Dates for locally administered written exams can be found by clicking on the exam schedules below.

Some subjects have a preparation day the day before the exam. The preparation part for the exam is published on the website Eksamensinformasjon - Candidate - Udir.no at 09.00 on the preparation day.

Here is an overview of the exam dates for local written exams in spring and fall 2024

The assistive device scheme

In the vast majority of subjects, all aids are permitted except for the open internet and other tools that can be used for communication. You can read more about aids on the website of the Norwegian Directorate of Education .

Some subjects deviate from this rule in that there are restrictions on the use of aids, or that special aids are required to solve the exam paper. If you are taking the exam, you can check the requirements for aids and equipment for the exam in your subject by following this link Frontpage - Candidate - Udir.no Search for your subject by using the subject code or subject name.

For those who administer the exam, you can find an overview of aids in the various subjects in the exam plan in the Examination and Administration System (PAS)

For courses that are conducted in the new examination and test system, the candidate is required to use his/her own computer with the necessary and updated software. See more information by following this link.

Online resources

The written exam aid scheme

The rapid development of artificial intelligence and increasingly advanced aids are creating challenges in the conduct of exams in upper secondary school. The Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training is working with the county authorities to find good solutions to prevent candidates from using illegal aids during written exams. This is to ensure a good and fair exam for everyone. One of the measures being introduced is that the county authorities have decided to reduce the number of available websites in the national online resource list. In addition, the resources on the list will be quality assured right up to the exam. If errors are discovered during the quality assurance process or if the online resources contain illegal aids such as artificial intelligence, they may be removed from the list.

Change 26.02.2024: We have been made aware that trinket.io is not a closed programming environment, but that it is possible to make calls from a program you write in trinket and out on the internet. In principle, you can then communicate, use AI and any resources you want to use, including adding prompts and using chatGPT directly in trinket .io.

Change 10.04.2024: The German online dictionary "Duden Wörterbuch" has been on the national joint list of permitted online resources for a long time. Recently they added a new functionality which unfortunately means that the dictionary can no longer be an allowed online resource during the written exam. It is now possible to order a subscription that gives the exam candidate access to AI-based help for text production. The tool will, for example, be able to reformulate entire sections of text. This is an additional service from Duden that you have to subscribe to, but at the moment you can test the service for free for 7 days without providing payment information. It will then be very easy for an exam candidate to activate the service, for example, the day before the exam and then have access during the exam. We therefore have to remove "Duden Wörterbuch" from the national joint list. The list on Novari IKS' examination pages was updated on 10.04.24.

Grading of written examinations

The spring 2024 joint exam is June 18, 19, 20 and 21.

The examiners then talk to each other to determine the final exam mark.

  • In centrally administered written examinations, test answers must be graded by two examiners. The state administrator is responsible for appointing examiners.
  • In centrally administered written examinations with local marking, test answers must be marked by two examiners. The county municipality is responsible for appointing examiners.
  • For locally administered written examinations with local grading, test answers must be graded by two examiners, one of whom may be the candidate's subject teacher. The county authorities are responsible for appointing examiners.

You can read more about grading by following this link: Grading exams (udir.no)

Complaints handling

If you wish to appeal against the result of a written examination, the appeal should be sent to the examination school. The appeal must be submitted within ten days of the grade being made available. The examination school registers the appeal. All ordinary appeals must be registered with the responsible state or county administrator within the set deadlines.

The outcome of the appeal may be that the pupil keeps the grade, or that the pupil receives a better or worse grade. The school informs the student of the outcome of the appeal.
