Norwegian term or phrase: å avlegge eksamen
x
gro
English translation:take an exam
Explanation:
This is a more accurate translation than the the two previous answers,"pass an exam".
"Å avlegge eksamen" means to take an exam.
"Å bestå" is to pass.
Unfortunately, you don't necessarily pass an exam just by taking it...

Good luck!
