Illness during home exams

If you suffer from acute illness during a home examination, you can be given extra time. This is stipulated in the  § 25 (7) of the Regulations for examinations at UiT

"For home examinations, additional examination days may be granted in special circumstances if the student documents unforeseen problems of a medical nature, bereavement in the immediate family or other similar misfortunate circumstances that have occurred during the examination period. When the stipulated examination time is more than two weeks, the submission deadline can normally be extended by up to two days. If the stipulated examination time in of a shorter duration, the submission deadline can normally be extended by one day. Students who still do not manage to complete the examination despite the extra time have the right to a re-scheduled examination."

If you suffer from acute illness during a home examination, but can manage to submit the exam with extra time, you can get extra time if you document unforeseen problems. In order for UiT to know how much extra time you should have, it is importent that you submit a medical certificate that contain details of how much time you have lost.
