Re-exam - courses
The ordinary course exam will most likely be followed by a re-exam. A possible re-exam must therefore be included in your exam planning from the start.
Who can and who must sit for a course re-exam?
sit for the re-exam in immediate continuation of the ordinary exam (i.e. in August or February/March), if they do not pass the ordinary exam. It is of no importance whether they failed or did not submit/show up at the ordinary exam.
All students will be registered for the re-exam if the preceding ordinary exam is not passed.
How to sign up for course re-exam?
All students will be signed up for re-exam automatically if they have not passed the ordinary exam.
The students must re-submit their exam paper in learnIT before the deadline (C, D and E exams only).
The deadline for re-submission of exam papers will appear from
in the Study Guide.
Be aware that the re-submission deadline may also be relevant to you, since you and the external examiner must grade re-exam papers that are not followed by an oral exam in due time for Student Affairs and Programmes to register and release the grade within 4 weeks from submission day.
What if students do not pass the course re-exam?
Students who for some reason do not pass the re-exam immediately after the ordinary exam will have to retake the course at a later point, in a semester where the course in question is offered. If the course in question is no longer taught, they can sit for the re-exam in the two following ordinary exam periods.
Students sign up for the course in a following semester by signing up for the course via My Study Activities in the course and project registration period.
Re-exam - project base projects and theses
Project and thesis exams are in principle similar to course exams, but they entail different administrative procedures by not being related to a course, but rather based on a enrollment in project agreement in the project base.
Whatever the reason for not passing a project or thesis exam, the time frame for a subsequent re-exam is the same - meaning that the project/thesis must, as a rule, be re-submitted by the next possible submission deadline and followed by an oral exam.
in the Study Guide to see the deadlines that apply in the current semester.
Exempted from this rule are re-exams due to illness on the day of submission and/or of the oral exam.
If the student is ill on the day of submission and can provide Students Affairs and Programmes with a doctors note, the student will not use an exam attempt and he/she will receive a new submission deadline.
If the student is ill on the day of the oral exam and can provide Students Affairs and Programmes with a doctors note the student will not use an exam attempt and can attend an oral exam shortly thereafter. If the student can not provide Student Affair and Programmes with a doctors note, he/she will have used an exam attempt and must wait untill the next submission deadline to re-submit the project or thesis and participate in the oral exam.
Who is responsible for setting up a project or thesis re-exam?
All students must be registered for the re-exam if the preceding ordinary exam is not passed. They will receive a mail from Student Affairs and Programmes with a new submission deadline 3 months later.
It is the supervisors responsibility to contact Student Affairs and Programmes with a date and a name of the external examiner for the project or thesis re-exam when the project or thesis has been submitted.
Projects that are part of a project cluster follow the re-exam rules that apply to independent projects with a project agreement in the project base.
