Illness and withdrawal during exams

Due to the Corona virus, students are exempt from sending in a medical statement to get a valid absence on their exam. However, you must send in a self-certification form to register as absent. Students must be registered for the original exam and send in a self-certication form (or a medical statement) to be eligible to sign up for the retake exam.

The medical statement or the self-certication form must be delivered within one week after the exam.

  • A medical statement or a self-certifcation will give you a legitimate absence on your exam. This exam will not count as an attempt. You will have the right to sign up for the resit exam.
  • Without a medical statement or without sending in a self-certication form, the exam will count as one attempt.  You will not have the right to sign up for the resit exam and must wait for the next regular exam. You must redo any course work requirements.
