On Tuesday, around 4,500 private candidates took exams in their main written Norwegian language in order to get the diplomas they need.
Although students in high schools will only receive their average grade points this year, many are turning to private exams to get the qualification they want, writes the Directorate for Education.
On Tuesday, 4,500 private candidates sat exams in their main Norwegian language, while 3,500 candidates on Monday took the private exam in their second Norwegian language.
Several of the candidates have occupied the Vallhall Arena in Oslo in recent days, one of the places used as an examination room. In the hall, there is enough space for compliance with the rules on infection control, as there is good distance between the students.
The Directorate states that the students have, among other things, answered questions on the ethos appeal in a case text from the airline Widerøe, compared two novel excerpts from the realism tradition, and discussed whether there is any value in fighting to keep the dialects in Norway.
