Regarding Pseudonymisation 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 (the student registry).

In order to maintain this pseudonymous 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 up-hold the routes of contact according to the below:

If the inadequacy or error emerges during the exam sitting:

  • contact the invigilator on site. S/he will ensure your information reaches the Course Coordinator.

If the inadequacy or error is found post-exam, but before the results have been reported to Ladok:

  • contact the JU 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 feed-back from your teachers.
  • If questions arise concerning the above, please contact the Service Center via the case management system - here External link, opens in new window..
