E-exams using the electronic examination system EXAM

You can register for an electronic examination (e-exam) using the EXAM online service. The actual exam will take place in a physical e-examination room on Aalto University’s campus, however. All e-examination rooms are under video surveillance.

The period of availability of an e-exam is usually a week, for example. You can take the e-exam on a date and time that suit you within this period of availability. The e-exam rooms are located on the Aalto campus in Otaniemi. Their opening hours usually follow the opening hours of the respective buildings. Remember to check the buildings’ websites for the opening hours (see the table below). As the person taking the exam, you are responsible for making sure that the building is open during the exam time you have booked. Note! To access the e-examination room M327, you need a student access token. (Instructions on activating an access token: How to get an access token and access rights)
