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. 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.
Before you decide to deregister from an exam, please pay attention to the rules regarding maximum period of study. In addition, be aware that you cannot attend the reexam if you have deregistered from or not attended the ordinary exam.
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 mystudies.au.dk -> STADS -> Examination -> Register.
Students, who wish to sign up for their second and third exam attempt, can find information in the boxes below.
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 de-register from an examination you are not able to attend the reexamination in the same period. You will have the possibility to attend examination again tn the next ordinary examination period.
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.
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.
You are personally responsible for registering for the reexamination. You register for your reexamination by sending an email to email@example.com.
