Guides and routines

Here you will find guides and information about various routines at the Section of Chemistry to help you as a teacher.

Guides according to roles

Selected routines and functions

  • Exams and re-sits
    • Exam papars are handed in for transport at the BMC reception or Ångströms Student Service counter, depending on which department is responsible for the course. The deadline is 12:00 the day before the exam. Students' answers can usually be picked up the day after the exam, from the same place where they were handed in for transport.

    • A cover page must be submitted together with the exam papers. Use the cover page for BMC or Ångström, depending on where the exam papers are handed in for transport.

    • Marked papers are scanned and distributed electronically by Student Service Ångström. Students can log in to this page to download their scanned papers.

    • A student who is dissatisfied with his/her grade can request a review of the grading decision (NB: this is not a full remarking of the exam. The request must be carefully justified, and is aimed at errors that can be quickly and easily corrected, e.g. the teacher miscalculated the total number of marks awarded. More information and the rules can be found here (in Swedish only), information for students in English, bottom of the page under "Reconsidering of exam").  Students need to fill in this form and submit it to the course office for processing. The teacher must also submit the decision of the review to the course office for formal registration, and the student will also then be informed of the decision.

    • UU's Guidelines for the Conduct of Written Examinations and Guidelines for conducting remote written examinations decribe the rules and requirements for written exams.

Laboratory classes - assessment and policies

Most courses have laboratory classes. General guidlelines for assessing student performance in laboratory classes for the first three semesters of chemistry degree programs at the bachelor level have been developed. These should be applied with due regard to the course in question.

Safety Regulations

Risk assessment

Pre- and post-course meetings

Suspected cheating/plagarism

  • If you suspect cheating/plagiarism, stop marking the work and inform the course coordinator immediately. The course coordinator must then gather the relevant background information and contact the Director of Studies as soon as possible.

  • The teacher who detected the suspected cheating/plagiarim does not have to contact the student. The Director of Studies will together with the course coordinator on the relevant course of action and where necessary call the student to a meeting, in accordance with the UU Routine for dealing with suspected deceptive conduct in examinations.
