Exams and resit exams

  • At the end of each course, there is an exam, in the majority of cases a written one (in-class work may also be used as a base for your grade).
  • A re-sit exam is offered on each course some weeks after the first exam.
  • There is no limit as to how many re-sit exams a student may take to pass a course (for courses that are offered).
  • If a course is discontinued, an extra exam will be organised each semester for the following three semesters.
  • A student who has obtained a passing grade on an exam cannot re-take the exam in order to improve his/her grade.


If a course has a credit system, the credit earned during the semester is valid for the regular exam and the re-sit exam of that semester.

If a re-registered student would like to participate in the credit system of the course again, she/he can only do so if granted a new place on the course by the course administrator.
