Getting ready for your exam

There are several things you need to know and have prepared in order to write your exam in the University's common exam halls.

Prepare your computer for a DISA exam

An e-examination is an exam written and assessed in a web-based system. At the University of Gothenburg, the system goes by the name DISA. E-exams are therefore often called DISA exams here. Most DISA exams are written using a lockdown browser that temporarily blocks your computer from any other activity besides the exam.

Do you need to borrow a computer?
