Exams in the field of Business
If a course is arranged by the School of Business (you can find the information in the course description) the exams are also arranged by the School. Therefore you should always follow the exam instructions of the School of Business.
Please read these instructions if you are attending the Summer 2017 courses as an Aalto University School of Business degree student.
Examination practises School of Business
The registration for examinations is obligatory. Open University students who attend the courses register for exams through Aimo registration service.
The procedure beginning 1 August 2017
Beginning on 1 August 2017, if you register for a course arranged by the School of Business you will be automatically registered for the course examination, 1st examination which is held at the end of the course. Therefore you do not need to register for the first sitting of the course examination (abbreviated KT) if you have already registered for the course.
Students must register separately for all other examinations arranged by the School of Business (re-examinations and book examinations, for example). Such registration begins two months before and ends 7 days before the examination date.
Make sure to register for examinations in Aimo web service no later than one week before the examination date.
For example, if your exam is on Friday February 22nd, you should do the registration on Friday February 15th before midnight. Register with your Aimo account and password (not with Aalto account and password).
If you haven't done the exam registration in time, your exam answers will not be graded.
The exams in the Bachelor's Progam are 3 hour exams and these exams are held at Otaniemi Campus. The examinations of the Master's Programs are either 3 hours or 4 hours and they are held at Töölö Campus.
