1st-year exam

What is the first year exam rule?

According to the Examination Order all academic regulations for bachelor degree programmes must include a section regarding first year exams. This states a number of exams that new bachelor students must participate in and pass within the first year of study.

If you do not fulfill the requirements to the first year exam rules, you will be discontinued from your degree programme. If you are discontinued, it will not be possible to be enrolled in the same programme again unless you receive an exemption.

As a new bachelor student (commenced in 2016 or later) you must pass the first year exams within the first year of your degree programme.

You will find the courses that form part of your first year exams in the academic regulations.

Requirements for passing

The first-year exam must be passed before the end of the first academic year following the commencement of studies in order for the student to continue his or her studies, cf. the Examination Order.

If you do not pass your exams in the second attempt, you must register for the final exam attempt in the next summer examination period (August).

If you do not attend or fail to pass your exams before the end of the first academic year, you cannot continue on the degree programme, and you will be withdrawn.

If you fail to pass your exams during the first academic year due to special circumstances, such as illness, parental leave etc., you can apply for an exemption.
