Re-sit Examinations

Re-sit Examinations

Re-sit examinations for the IBA B1, B2 and B3 written examinations are held in June and July. Please find the schedule of all the re-sit examinations here.

With the exception of the Bachelor 1 course examinations, students have a free choice in the number of times that they wish to take a written examination. With effect from 1 September 2018, the result for a test is established on the highest test result obtained. If the material to be studied for an examination has changed, the new material must be studied. For the examinations of course year B1, the following rule applies: Once the BSA norm (as specified in Article 9.2 of the Rules and Guidelines) is met, with or without compensation, these examinations may not be retaken.

As for the Bachelor 1 course examinations, students may take part in no more than 4 of the B1 re-sit exams (in the July re-sit period) per year. This regulation is part of the Examination Regulations BSc IBA (Section 3, Art. 3.1).

Note: keep in mind that to obtain a cum laude judicium no more than two examinations have been taken more than once and to obtain a summa cum laude no examination has been taken more than once.

Registration for re-sit examinations

Registration for re-sit examinations is possible via Osiris during the registration period: starting 35 days before the exam and expiring seven days before the exam. During this period, registration is free of charge. You can also register at the ESSC desk in the Sanders Building (ground floor) during this period. Osiris can be reached via www.myeur.nl.

After registering via Osiris Student, you will receive an e-mail confirmation of your registration. You should print out and save this e-mail until the results of the re-sit examinations are announced in Osiris.

During the registration period, it is also possible for you to deregister for a re-sit examination for which you have registered. In this way, you can avoid the remark ‘did not show up’ being entered on your Osiris overview. It could also enable another student to use the reserved seat and table.

After expiry of the registration period, you will no longer be able to register online. A registration fee will then be charged.
