Further on evaluation
If there is a re-sit examination, the examination form may be changed from written to oral. A (potential) written re-sit exam may also have a different form than the ordinary exam. If a student wants to repeat the course, approved compulsory activities older than two years must be repeated to qualify for the final exam, regardless whether the student has passed the course earlier or not. Approved compulsory activities from the previous two years will normally be accepted. However, this should be clarified with the course responsible early in the semester.
Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.
