If you are registered for a course, you are automatically registered for the ordinary exam as well. You can deregister from an exam until 14 days before the date of the exam.
Before you decide to deregistrate from an exam, please pay attention to the rules regarding maximum duration of studies.
Please notice that courses may overlap, if you decide to postpone a course to a later semester. For instance, if you deregister from a compulsory course at your third semester and plan to retake it on your fifth semester, it may overlap with other fifth semester courses.
If you do not pass the ordinary examination, you must register for the reexamination via the student self-service facility - mystudies.au.dk. - However, you cannot deregister for a reexam after the registration deadline for reexams has expired. This means that the 14 day-deadline for withdrawal does not apply for the reexaminations.
Please make sure that you check that your exam registrations are correct in mystudies.au.dk.
Students, who wish to sign up for their second and third exam attempt, can find information in the boxes below.

Do you need to pass a course and have to sign up for your second or third examination attempt?
If you fall ill, do not pass or are absent from your first examination attempt (the ordinary examination), you can register for reexamination.
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.
Please note that you can only register for the reexamination, if you have used an examination attempt or you have been granted dispensation to go directly to reexamination.
If you do not pass the first reexamination, you will have the opportunity to register for a new examination in one of the following semesters.
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.
You are personally responsible for registering for the reexamination. You register for your reexamination in the Student Self-Service system (STADS).
Reexamination immediately after the ordinary exam
In case you used an exam attempt at the ordinary exam and you wish to take the proximate reexam in August or February, you register via the student self service (mit.au.dk).
Reexamination in one of the following semesters (ordinary- and reexamination period)
