Planned exams

You only need to fill in your credentials and DigiExam will find the planned exams you are eligible to take for you. If no exam is visible when you start the DigiExam client and you know there should be a planned exam there, check your internet connection, try clicking on the "Refresh my exams" button in the top-left corner (see figure 2) and if that does not work, check that you have filled in the correct credentials.

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.

Fill in the Exam ID in the "Open exam" box under the "Exam ID" heading and click on the "Get open exam" button to find the exam (see figure 2).

Hand in exam

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

When you press the "Hand in exam and exit" button you will be asked if you want to finish the examination and then again if you are really sure that you want to finish the examination (see figure 10 and 11). This is a safety precaution made to prevent an accidental hand in of an exam.

Click on the "OK" buttons to proceed with handing in the exam.

After you have clicked on the last "OK" button on in the last pop-up box the exam is handed in.

The hand in is confirmed by a last pop-up box that says "Exam handed in successfully!" press the "Close DigiExam" button to exit the DigiExam client (see figure 12).
