Communicate with administrative and teachers' support

The administrative support handles the booking of computer rooms, invigilators, ordering of lockdown, and more. They need information about the examination structure to make correct bookings and provide the best possible support. Examples of information to share about the structure:

  • If there are several parts and if any part is to be written on paper.
  • Permitted aids.
  • Programs that will be used during the exam.
  • Password for quizzes to be provided to invigilators.

The teachers' support looks different at the different schools. If you want to read more about what it looks like at your school and find contact details, you can do so on the page Local support for e-learning at KTH's schools  .
