Registration and withdrawal

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 deregistrate from an exam, please pay attention to the rules regarding maximum duration of studies and the demand for study progress. 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 the student self-service facility - mit.au.dk

Please make sure that you check that your exam registrations are correct in mit.au.dk. You can follow your course and exam registrations as well as your maximum period of studies on mitstudie.au.dk on the subpage called "my study timeline". 

Students, who wish to sign up for their second and third exam attempt, can find information in the boxes below.

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 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 examam-period. Be aware that some exams only takes place once a year and you may be delayed in your degree programme to postpone your exam.

Reexamination in one of the following semesters

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).
