Almost all degree programmes have automatic exam registration, which means that you are automatically registered for the exam when you have been registered for a course. There are, however, a few exceptions to this general rule. If, for example, you are not registered for a course but wish to hand in a paper for assessment in that course, or if you have to take a re-examination, you must follow special procedures which vary from faculty to faculty.
In the case of certain subjects, the type of examination cannot unambiguously be decided. This often applies to degree programmes, where the students may choose from a number of different types of examinations for different elective subjects. In these cases, you need to indicating, when registering for the exam via the student self-service system, which type of examination the involved subject allows for.
It is therefore important that you always check your exam registrations on the student self-service system in due time before the exams. If you are in doubt or have questions regarding your examination, you can always contact Registration & Legality.
Withdrawal from exams
It is not possible to withdraw from an exam.
Examination notices providing the dates and venues for the exams and the date for the publication of the grades can be found on the student self-service system on the Internet about 1 month before the exam. As changes can happen, you are advised to keep up to date on the Internet.
You can check your exam registrations through the student self-service system on the Internet - the final examination lists can be found here no later then three days before the exam.
You may only enter the examination room if you are on the final examination lists. You must therefore make sure that you are on the relevant and necessary examination lists. If you are in doubt, please contact Registration & Legality as soon as possible.
It is important that you get any exemptions sorted out in due time before the exam. You also need to find out whether any special deadlines apply. Examples of circumstances that call for exemption:
- If you wish to have the exam extended, you need to send a reasoned application to your academic study Board including relevant documentation, e.g. a doctor's certificate.
- If you wish to use a computer, you need to be aware that there are different regulations at each faculty. Therefore, always ask your academic study Board or your department.
- If you wish to be placed in a special classroom or have other wishes, you need to send a reasoned application to your academic study Board
- Remember: if you have exceeded any time limits, deadlines or the allowed number of examination attempts in compulsory and/or elective subjects, you need to apply for an exemption. You are not entitled to be enrolled in the study programme or to take an exam in any subject at all, until an exemption has been approved. Applications for more than 3 examination attempts are considered by your academic study Board
