The faculty in charge of the subject determines which aids are permitted during exams. Aids to written examinations or tests may include written and printed materials, calculators, drawing equipment and other auxiliary equipment.
An overview of permitted aids for the various examinations should be stated in the course descriptions and / or curricula.
It should also be clearly stated on the examination paper which aids are permitted, including the use of calculators. Aids that are not listed in the text will be confiscated, and this will be regarded as cheating or attempting to cheat. During the the exam the faculty is obligated to have a person available to clarify questions from the invigilators concerning the use of aids.
For queries regarding any of the matters above please contact the administration at your department or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a calculator is permitted, it should be simple. If a calculator can be used during the examination, this should be stated in the course description. Programmable calculators are not allowed unless this is specifically stated in the exam text. Equipment for connecting to the mains power, magnetic card, output devices or other calculators is not permitted. The calculator must not emit noise.
There may be other limitations for the use of calculators than those set forth in this point. Violation of the provisions of this will be considered as an attempt to cheat.
