Which courses have re-sit examinations?
In courses in which written exams or oral examinations are held only once in the academic year, a re-sit examination is to be arranged before the next ordinary examination. The supplementary regulations and/or the course description specify whether a course has one or two regular exams per academic year.
Does my course has two regular exams per academic year, or has one regular and one re-sit exam? See the course webpage - find your course and go to the tab "Examination".
When will the re-sit examinations be organized?
The re-sit examinations will be held in August (week 32/33/(34)) for a number of courses. You will find information about this at each course's website - tab "Examination". The status code will be "UTS" and the term will be "Summer".
The dates will be published 15 July on each course's web page (search for last year's course, then go to "Examination") and on Studentweb.
Courses with re-sit examinations held during the academic year will have status code "UTS" and term will be "Spring" or "Autumn". You will also find the examination date under the tab "Examination".
