Resit and deferred examinations:
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
The following candidates do not have the right to present themselves for resits/deferred exams:
•Candidates who have passed their exams
•Candidates who have failed to present themselves for the ordinary exams without a valid, documented reason
•Candidates who have not registered for the ordinary exams
•Candidates who have registered, but who have cancelled their exam registration within the deadline
These candidates have to register for the next ordinary exam.
