Resitting an exam
You can usually resit an examination, but the conditions depend on whether you had a valid reason for absence from the regular exam.
With a valid reason for absence
If you had a valid reason for absence from the regular exam, you may apply for a re-scheduled exam. Valid reasons for absence may be approved if you were ill before or during the exam or if you had other strong reasons for not sitting the exam.
Re-scheduled exams are arranged either later in the same semester or early in the semester following the regular exam. In courses where a regular exam is arranged each semester, the re-scheduled exam may be arranged at the same time as the next regular exam.
Contact the faculty's studies information centre if your faculty does not have its own information about postponed exams.
Without a valid reason for absence
If you have failed the regular exam or if you would like to obtain a better grade, you may resit the examination the next time a regular exam in the course is arranged.
In most courses at the university, you may sit an examination up to three times. You can not resit an examination if you have reached the maximum number of examination attempts.
Contact the faculty's studies information centre for more information about how to resit an examination without a valid reason for absence.
If you withdrew before the exam
If you have followed the course, but withdrew from the exam before the deadline, you can in most courses take the exam the next time it is arranged. Some courses have special rules about teaching and compulsory activities for those who wish to resit an exam. Contact the faculty's studies information centre for more information.
