Pollen allergy

Special examination arrangements if you have pollen allergy.

Pollen allergy usually provides no basis for granting additional examination time. Medications generally have little to no side effects and therefore there is no basis for claiming that students with pollen allergy have a significant disadvantage in an examination situation.

You cannot expect to be granted additional examination time if the season for pollen allergy is over.

Acute affliction/health problem - requires documentation from doctor

Pollen allergy is therefore considered an acute affliction/health problem and documentation from a doctor is required, which must be dated no earlier than 7 days before the day of the examination. The documentation must specifically document the disadvantages your allergy has on an examination situation.

How to apply?

The application deadline is set at 12.00 two work days prior to the examination.

Ill on the exam day?

If you are ill on the exam day, you can apply for approved absence.
