There are two exam types in DigiExam, planned and open exams. In the DigiExam client you can choose between "Open" and "Registered" (planned), your teacher/exam supervisor will tell you which kind of exam type you should choose before the exam starts.

Planned exams

You only need to fill in your credentials and then click on "Find exam" to find a planned exam (see figure 1).

Open exams

You'll need an "Exam ID" to find an open exam. Your teacher/exam supervisor will provide you with the "Exam ID" if you are writing an open exam.

When you have entered the Exam ID, press the "Find open exam" button (see figure 2).

Hand in exam

When you are ready to hand in your exam, press the "Hand in and exit" button in the bottom right corner to hand in the exam and exit the application.

When you press the "Hand in and exit" button you will be asked twice if you want to hand in your exam (see figure 5 and 6). This is a safety precaution made to prevent an accidental hand in of an exam.
