Admission in quota 2 in 2020

As a consequence of corona virus and public authorities’ attempt to limit its spread, this year’s entrance examination in quota 2 will be conducted as follows:

  • The entrance examination for all Bachelor’s and Engineering programmes at SDU will solely consist of the participation in the uniTEST – a general aptitude test. The test consists of 92 questions, and its level of difficulty is unchanged.
  • Programme specific tests in the forms of interviews, lecture participation, written tests, etc. will not be conducted this year.
  • uniTEST will be conducted as an online test, i.e. you can participate from home. The test will be monitored via remote proctoring to ensure an individual and unassisted participation.
The online uniTEST is held from April 15 through April 19. You will receive your specific test date on April 6.

What this means to you

  • You will only have to conduct the uniTEST once – even if you are applying for admission to several programmes.
  • You must not appear at the university to attend and conduct the uniTEST.
  • You can participate in the uniTEST from abroad, as always.
  • You must register for the uniTEST no later than March 27 at 12, noon
How to register for uniTEST

Once you have applied for admission in quota 2, you will receive access to SDU’s self-service platform, Admission SDU. Herem you’ll be able to track the status of your application, and it is also where you must register for the uniTEST.

When you register, you can choose one test date on which you do not wish to be tested. Unfortunately, we are unable to meet requests for specific test dates as we can only test a limited number of applicants at the same time.

On April 6, you will be informed about your test date. After this, you will be able to book the specific hour yourself. Booking of specific hours happens on a first come, first served basis.

Participation via remote proctoring

Participation in the uniTEST happens via remote proctoring to make sure the test is completed according to our rules. You will receive all necessary information in time, but if you wish, you can already read about the requirements this poses to you as participant.
