Deviations from modes of examination in the syllabus can be made for a student who has been determined eligible for pedagogical support due to a disability. Individual adjustments to the mode of examination will be made on the basis of the student's needs. The mode of examination is adjusted in relation to the expected learning outcomes in the syllabus. Following a request from the student, the course coordinator, in consultation with the examiner, is to make a quick decision regarding an adjusted mode of examination. The decision is relayed to the student.
For a passing grade for parts that are examined in several parts, it is required that all parts are approved. The following applies: If none of the partial examinations are done or submitted, no grade is given for the part. If any of the partial examinations are not done or submitted, the grade Fail is given on the part, even if the partial examinations that have been completed are passed.
A student who has not received a Pass grade on a test has the right to re-take the test (a re-sit). The first re-sit will be arranged no later than two months after the original test, but no earlier than ten working days after the result of the original test has been announced. For tests held in May or June, the first re-sit is to be arranged within three months of the original examination session. The date for the re-sit will be provided, at the latest, in conjunction the original test. At least one additional re-sit will be offered within one year of the original test.
In cases where a test cannot be repeated according to rules in effect regarding re-sits, it will be replaced with another task. The scope and content of such a task should be proportionate to the missed test.
A student who has failed the original test and the re-sit for a course has the right to request to have another examiner appointed, unless special circumstances render this inappropriate. A request for this must be submitted to the Director of Studies for the Faculty of Arts.
