If the examination was not passed

A not-passed result includes:

  • The results stated in the exam order 
  • Cases where the student is absent from the exam
  • Cases where a paper is rejected because of a lack of conformance to form requirements
  • If a student has participation in an exam rejected due to suspicion of cheating, then the student will be subsequently informed as to whether he/she has the right to participate in the re-exam. Read more about examination cheating here
  • If you don’t pass your regular examination and need to re-take an examination


You can sign up for a re-exam

If you do not pass the regular exam, it is possible for you to register for a re-exam in the same exam period or later. As is the case for the regular examination, you can also not withdraw from a re-exam. The re-exams will take place in late April or August.
