Written on-campus examinations

In order to prepare for written exams held on campus, it is important that you go through the checklist below well in advance of the exam.

·  Information on the exam date and venue will be published in Studentweb.

·  Information on the room and candidate number will be published in Studentweb a few days before the exam.

·  Approved aids are specified in the course plan. 

Important preparations for written on-campus exams: 

Use of own laptop

·  Students will normally use their own laptop for digital exams held on campus.

·  Students are responsible for ensuring that their laptop is working properly.

·  Use of Chromebooks or iPads is not permitted.

·  It is important to familiarise yourself with Inspera before the exam. More information and user guides are available here.


·  It is important that you test your laptop’s connection to NLA’s internet access service, eduroam.

·  Use of NLA’s guest network is not permitted during exams, and your laptop must therefore be able to connect to eduroam.

·  Work laptops may not be able to connect to eduroam because these are often locked. If you have a work laptop, it is important to establish if you can use this in good time before the exam. Contact the IT department if you have any questions.


·  Laptops must be equipped with Windows 10 or 11. We recommend that students use Windows 10. (Windows 10 S is not supported.) Macs must be equipped with OSX 10.15 or a later version.

·  The following browsers are supported:
- Google Chrome
- Mozilla Firefox
- Safar
- Microsoft Edge
- Note that Internet Explorer is not supported. 

·  You must install the Safe Exam Browser (SEB) before the exam. If this is not done before the exam, it will not be possible to use your laptop. The alternative in this case would be pen and paper. If you have installation problems, you can contact the IT department at support@nla.no, or call 55 53 69 99.

Username and password

·  It is important to remember your Feide username and password to avoid any log-in problems during the exam. If you have forgotten your password, you can set a new password here. It takes two hours for a new password to be activated, so this must be done in good time before the exam.

·  If you forget your password at the exam, you will need to use pen and paper.

Problems with your laptop?

·  If you have problems with your own laptop, you may ask to borrow one for the exam. You should do this in good time before the exam as there is no guarantee that there will be one available.

·  If you borrow a laptop from NLA, follow the log-in instructions that are given in advance and on the day of the exam.

·  If none of NLA’s laptops are available, you must use pen and paper in the exam.
