Decision

If the Examination Board agrees to give an extra opportunity, the lecturer concerned will be asked to cooperate with this. In general, the student concerned will then be referred to the lecturer to establish the time at which the extra opportunity will be offered. The decision of the Examination Board will also entail that the extra opportunity will have to be taken within a certain period. The Examination Board can also decide that the extra opportunity will be taken during the next re-examination period.

The extra examination will in general only be offered once.
