The Compulsory Study Start Test (MSc)

As a new engineering student, you must pass the compulsory study start test to be able to continue your studies. The study start test must be completed at the start of the semester and you have two attempts to pass the test.

The primary objective of the study start test is to determine whether you have started your master studies at SDU.

The study start test consists of a small test in SDU’s exam system, Digital Exam. You will receive a notification in your SDU student email when the test can be accessed in Digital Exam.

If you do not complete the exam you will have a second attempt (reexamination). The reexamination also consists of a small test in Digital Exam. You will receive a notification in your SDU student email when the reexamination can be accessed in Digital Exam. 

If you do not pass the reexamination, your enrolment will be annulled by 1 October 2021. Please note that once you have been disenrolled due to a failed study start test, you cannot be re-enrolled on the same study programme later on, unless the university considers that your prerequisites for completing the programme have improved considerably.

  • The study start test will run 1-8 September. Thus, to pass the exam you must register your answer in Digital Exam no later than 8 September 2021
