Failing the exam or improving a grade
You have the opportunity to sit the same exam a total of three times.
The number of exam attempts also applies to courses with an equivalent academic content (for instance, in the case of a course acquiring a new course code). The limit on the number of exam attempts also applies in the event of re-admission to the same programme, as the number of exam attempts is linked to the student, not the admission to a study programme.
You are responsible for registering for a resit or rescheduled exam by the stipulated deadlines:
- 15 September: for the exam in the autumn semester
- 1 March: for the exam in the spring semester
Special deadlines for registering for the exam
Please note: The Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Health and Welfare have their own deadlines for registering for the exam.

Faculty of Health and Social Studies
The deadline for registering for a resit/rescheduled exam is three weeks before the relevant exam.
