Exam registration and withdrawal

Registration for ordinary exam

You will automatically be registered for the ordinary examinations in all courses that you are signed up for. It is your own responsibility to make sure that your exam registration is correct, so please make sure to check your registration in the Student Self-service system at mit.au.dk that you have been registered for the right exams before the deadline for registration expires.

If there are errors in your registration, please send an email to your educational administrator.

The grades are announced no later than 4 weeks after the examination date.

Registration for reexamination

If you do not pass your first examination attempt (the ordinary examination), you are personally responsible for registering for the reexamination. You register for your reexamination in the Student Self-Service system (STADS). 

A prerequisite for registering for a reexamination (in February or August) is that you have been registered as having used an examination attempt at the ordinary exam in the same exam period. You will automatically use an examination attempt if you do not submit the exam paper or assignment. 

If you have attended the ordinary exam at midterm, the following reexamination period is likewise placed in February/August.

You can only register for the reexamination when you your exam result appears in the STADS self-service system or on the Study Timeline – even if you did not attend the exam. If you register before you have received your exam result, the registration will be rejected.    

Reexamination immediately after the ordinary exam

If you fail, if you have been ill or if you are absent from the ordinary exam, you can register for the reexamination which takes place immediately after the ordinary exam.

Example: You do not pass the ordinary exam, which takes place in June. You can then register for reexamination, which will be held during the same examination period, i.e. in August.

If you deregister from an ordinary examination, you are not able to attend the reexamination in the same period. You will have the possibility to attend an examination again in the next ordinary exam period. Be aware that most exams only takes place once a year and you may be delayed in your degree programme if you postpone your exam.

You register for your reexamination in the Student Self-Service system (STADS).

Deadline for signing for reexamination immediately after the ordinary exam:

  • Winter reexamination (february): 6 Februay
  • Summer reexamination (August): 8 July

You can only register for reexamination in this period, if you have used (registered) an examination attempt at the ordinary exam in the same semester.

You can only register for the reexamination when you your exam result appears in the STADS self-service system or on the Study Timeline – even if you did not attend the exam. If you register before you have received your exam result, the registration will be rejected.    

NB: You cannot deregister for a reexamination after the registration deadline for reexaminations has passed. This means that you cannot deregister for a reexamination 14 days before the date of the exam

Reexamination in a later semester

If you do not pass the first reexamination, you will have the opportunity to register for a new examination in a later semester.

The same applies if you do not have the opportunity to take the reexamination, which takes place immediately after the ordinary exam. You must be aware that it may cause a delay in your study programme, if you choose to postpone the reexamination.  

Example: You do not pass the ordinary exam, which is held in June. You refrain from using the second examination attempt at the reexamination in August or you do not pass your second examination attempt at the reexamination in August. You can then register for reexamination next time an ordinary exam is offered for that particular course. Please note that some courses/exams are offered each semester and other courses/exams are only offered once a year.  

Deadlines for registering for reexamination in the ordinary examination period, in a later semester:

  • December/January reexamination: 26 September
  • May/June reexamination: 28 March

Please note that you are not able to register for your reexamination in the ordinary exam period, in a later semester, in the Student Self-service system (STADS). Instead, please register by writing an email to your educational administrator.
