A resit/deferred exam is an opportunity for students who have failed or been absent from an exam to retake the exam without having to wait for a whole year. Resits/deferred exams are linked to the ordinary exams. You must have registered for an exam during the ordinary examination period in order to be eligible for resits.
The following candidates can register for resits/deferred exams:
- Candidates with a valid reason for absence during the ordinary exams. Valid reasons are illness or other circumstances beyond the candidate's control. This has to be documented by a doctor's certificate or similar documentation.
- Candidates who failed their ordinary exam
- Candidates who withdrew from the exam during their last ordinary exam
Registration for resits/deferred exams for exams occuring outside of the ordinary examination periods takes place via the Student Web as soon as the result has been announced, and no later than 3 weeks after announcement.
