* You are automatically registered for your 1. exam attempt in the following exam period when you register for the course. However, if you have to use your 2. or 3. attempt, you have to register yourself in that period.  

**If the grade for your ordinary examination is published after the registration deadline for the re-examination, and you did not pass the ordinary examination, you will be contacted on your post.au.dk email with an offer to be registered for the re-examination. Remember to be aware of the response deadline for reporting back to the email.

Registration for reexamination

You can register for the reexamination via mystudies.au.dk -> STADS -> Examination -> Register.

It is your own responsibility to check that your exam registrations are correct at mitstudie.au.dk. 
It is possible to deregister yourself in the registration period in which the registration has taken place, as all registrations hereafter are binding - also registrations for reexams.

If you did not have the opportunity to register for your exam in the registration period, it will require a dispensation from the Board of Studies in order to get registered outside the registration period.

If you did not pass the exam in the first attempt 

When you have to do a reexam, there are a few things you should be aware of: 

  • You need to have been registered and have used one examination attempt at the ordinary exam in order to register for the reexam.
  • You only have three attempts to pass an exam - if there are special circumstances you can apply for a dispensation for a fourth examination attempt from the Board of Studies.
  • It is only the newest form of examination that is offered, and if you have to take a reexam later in the semester the form might have changed since you first attended the course. OBS. therefore you need to check whether the syllabus has changed since you first attended the course.

Has your exam registration been rejected?

If you are able to see that your exam registration has been 'Rejected', you need to make sure that your study contract is updated and approved in order for the course to be taken into account. If that is in order you do not need to do anything further - there is no reason to contact the Studies Administration as the rejected registrations are corrected on an ongoing basis and will be corrected before the publication of the examination schedules.

Likewise, if you register for a re-examination before the grades for the ordinary examination have been published on STADS, your registration will also be rejected - but again, there is no need to worry - the rejected registrations are corrected on an ongoing basis and will be corrected before the publication of the re-examination schedules.

Reexams for courses in compulsory programmes

It is your own responsibility that you fulfill the requirements in the compulsory program. This means that you are responsible for knowing the number of assignments required in order to attend the exam.

In courses where it is possible, students should be offered the opportunity to resubmit assignments prior to the date for final exam registration, which will secure all students the opportunity to obtain a sufficient number of approved assignments during the course. It is recommended that the course coordinator considers number and scheduling of compulsory assignments/exercises to make resubmission possible.

If you do not meet the criteria in the compulsory program and thus cannot be registered for examination, this means that:

  • You will get a failed result registered for your 1st exam attempt.
  • You are not able to register for the next reexam, since you have to complete the parts of the course required for the compulsory program.

If you have to follow the course again in order to fulfill the requirements, this course will be added to the 30 ECTS for that semester, and there is no guarantee that your regular schedule will allow room for completing the entire course again.

For courses involving laboratory exercises, these must be completed in the laboratory once more, so you can fulfill the requirements in order to register for your second exam attempt.

Illness in connection with exam

Before the examination begins

If you are ill and unable to attend the examination:

  • You must send an application to be deregistered for the exam. It is very important that you send the application before the examination begins. E.g.: If the exam starts at 9, you must send the application before 9.
  • Oral exams start at the time the first student is examined.
  • You must provide documentation that states why you are unable to attend the exam.
  • If you are sick on the day of the examination, you must contact your doctor as soon as possible to get a doctor’s certificate.  
  • You must send the doctor’s certificate together with the application.
  • If you do not have the doctor’s certificate by the time of application, you can send the doctor’s certificate later.
  • If the Study Board grants an exemption, it means that you have not used an examination attempt.

On the day of the examination – after the exam has started

If you are ill and unable to attend the examination

  • Please contact your doctor on the day of the examination, or as soon as possible, to get a doctor’s certificate, if you are sick and unable to attend the examination. Please note that this also applies to chronic conditions. The Study Board will put emphasis on the date of issuance in the assessment. It is very important that you save the doctor’s certificate as you may need it if you must apply for a new examination attempt.
  • Please note that if you do not attend the exam, you have used an examination attempt.
  • If you apply for deregistration after the commencement of the examination, you have also used an examination attempt.
  • If you have remaining examination attempts, you must use these.
  • You must register for the next possible exam or re exam in the given course.
  • If you have used your last examination attempt, you must apply for an exemption to have a new examination attempt. To be granted an exemption, you must document your illness from the day of the examination.

*An exception may be if you were unable to deregister prior to the exam due to spontaneous and acute illness on your way to/from the exam.

Illness during the examination

If you fall ill during the examination, you should consider discontinuing the examination.

Please note! If you choose to finish the examination despite your illness, the Study Board’s decision will reflect this. The Study Board will put emphasis on the fact that you have chosen to finish the exam despite your illness and less attention will be given to the doctor’s certificate. The Study Board always makes individual assessments of each application and can, in some cases, deviate from our normal practice.

  • Contact the examiner and/or exam observer and tell her/him that you are leaving the exam because you feel ill.
  • You have used an examination attempt.
  • Contact your doctor on the same day or as soon as possible after the day of the exam to get a doctor’s certificate. This also applies to chronic diseases. The Study Board will put emphasis on the date of issuance in the assessment. It is very important that you save the doctor’s certificate as you may need it if you must apply for a new examination attempt.
  • If you have remaining examination attempts, you must use these.
  • You must register for the next possible exam or re exam in the given course.
  • If you have used your last examination attempt, you must apply for an exemption to have a new examination attempt. To be granted an exemption, you must document your illness from the day of the examination.

Illness in immediate family

Exceptional circumstances in connection with examinations can also be acute and/or chronic illness in your immediate family. Immediate family includes parents, spouse, partner and children.

If your examination is affected by illness in your immediate family and you need to apply for an exemption, you must send documentation that states how the situation has affected you. This can be a doctor’s certificate from your own doctor. It is not necessary to send documentation for your relatives’ illness.
