All exams at the Faculty of Law will be conducted as home exams in the autumn of 2020. The decision is based on an overall assessment of the COVID19 situation, especially in Oslo, as well as the concern for the predictability for students.

This means:

  • Exam dates are unchanged.
  • Exam start- and end times are unchanged.
  • No changes are made to exams that are already planned as home exams.
  • There are no postponed exams for courses that are offered every semester.
  • Exams with letter grades (A-F) retain these. Exams with pass/fail grades retain these.
