Illness during exams


Are you ill and supposed to take an exam? What you need to do depends on whether you have a doctor’s note or not.

  • Yes, I have a doctor’s note: Submit a request for special exam arrangements to the Board of Examiners via email.
    Notify your Course Coordinator about your absence as well.
  • No, I do not have a doctor’s note: Book an appointment with the Study Advisor. 
    Notify your course coordinator about your absence as well.

Send the doctor’s note or make the appointment as soon as can reasonably be expected. If you do this too late it may mean that special arrangements cannot be made.

On account of your illness, it is possible to receive a ruling for special arrangements concerning the (midterm or end term) exam you have missed. 

The time, date and specifications of such exam arrangements are determined by the Course Coordinator. These arrangements can only be provided for midterm and/or final exams.
Supplementary and replacement retake examinations are excluded from these arrangements. When and if the special exam arrangements are at the same time as supplementary/replacement examinations, then there is no further retake opportunity.

If you encounter a delay in your academic progress due to your illness, you are to report this to the Study Advisor as soon as possible.
