General Examinations and Retakings

General Examinations and Retakings

The student has two opportunities for the retake of a failed course. Students must follow the given retake dates. Teachers are not obliged to arrange other retaking exams outside these dates.

After two failed retakes the student gives a literary clearing of reasons which were leading to the failures and suggestions for further actions. The student must give the clearing to the Head of Department and discuss the situation with them on the basis of the clearing. If needed, the Head of Department will ask the teacher of the study period in question for a statement. Alternative solutions are retake of the special exam or retake of the whole study period.

The student has a right to raise an accepted grade of a study period once. The raising must be completed within one year of the registration of the original grade. The teacher of the study period will determine the way in which the student can attempt the raise. The failed trial for raising the grade does not reduce the original grade.
