Remarkable Flexibility

Examinarium is the new form of taking exams from our very own University of Oulu. The supervision is done with cameras and the dates and hours are flexible. This means you get to choose when to take your exam and in which time slot. You can make a reservation for an exam earliest 30 days before the exam date and latest 7 days before the exam date. The exam times can be 8-12, 12-16, and 16-20. The maximum students allowed per time slot is 24. If you wish to cancel your registration, you have to do it 3 days in advance.

Just A Few Steps And You’re In

Step 1: Agree with your teacher. Step 2: Register to the exam. Step 3: ???. Step 4: Profit. Alright,  maybe I skipped a step or two. Nevertheless, the registration is indeed done in the Optima environment and you must have an agreement with your teacher about it.

Examinarium Room Is Located In Linnanmaa

The room where the magic happens is on Linnanmaa campus, in room TL 102 in the corridor Fysiikankatu. This corridor is found between TellUs and Central Station, near the green coatracks. Can’t miss it!

Examinarium Also Takes A Summer Holiday

The Examinarium is closed during summer between July 4th and August 8th. So be sure to take this into account when planning your exams.

Save The Trees!

At the moment, exams in Examinarium are still paper-based. However, in the near future, examinations will be done electronically as so-called e-exams. This will hopefully mean less strain for your wrist while answering all the questions from your exam.
