An exam may consist of more than one part, and it may be a requirement that one or more parts must be fulfilled before you can take the exam. You can see in your academic regulations whether this applies to you.
Course participation in the relevant course may also be a prerequisite.
If you need to fulfil certain prerequisites in order to take an exam, it will be described in your academic regulations. Your teacher must confirm that the prerequisites have been fulfilled prior to the exam.
You must comply with the deadline set by your teacher.
The deadline for submitting the relevant material is the same as the deadline for registering for the re-examination. You can see the deadline in your exam schedule.
You must fulfil the prerequisites by submitting the relevant material to your teacher no later than 1 May for summer exams and 1 November for winter exams.
There are two things you need to be aware of:
If you do not fulfil the prerequisites, you cannot take the exam and you will have used one exam attempt. This applies to ordinary exams and to re-examinations.
If you are not sure of which teacher you need to contact to gain approval of your compliance with the prerequisites, please contact Study Centre Arts
Course participation may be a prerequisite for taking an exam. It will be stated in the description of the form of examination in your academic regulations whether course participation is required.
In the academic regulations, course participation is usually described as ‘active and satisfactory participation’. Unless otherwise stated, your teacher is responsible for defining what is understood by ‘active and satisfactory’.
If you fail to fulfil the course participation prerequisite, you will not be able to take the exam in the period of ordinary exams. Since your registration cannot be withdrawn, it means that you have used the first of three exam attempts. It is your own responsibility to register for the re-examination.
The re-examination form is described in the academic regulations. If you need a third attempt to pass the exam, this will be conducted in the same way as your second attempt.
Course participation can also be a form of examination in itself.
If you do not fulfil the course participation requirement, you will have used your first exam attempt. It is your own responsibility to register for the re-examination.
If course participation is a form of examination in itself, the re-examination will have another form. The form of the re-examination is described in the academic regulations.
If you need a third attempt to pass the exam, this will be conducted in the same way as your second attempt.
