Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

It is possible to compensate an insufficient grade from my Bachelor programme?

A student may pass the final exam with a 4.5 or higher for one examination part of the course year B1, provided that all components of course year B1 were passed, with the exception of the component with the 4.5 or higher, and this insufficient grade is compensated for by at least one rounded 7 or higher for another component of B1.

In addition, a student may also pass the final exam with a 4.5 or higher for one examination part of the course year B2 or B3, except for trimester 7 courses with a value more than 7,5 ects, the Research Training/Bachelor Thesis and the courses that are part of the Sandwich Year (if applicable), provided that the calculated grade point average is at least 7.0.

Procedure: The B1 compensation rule will automatically be processed in Osiris. The B2/3 compensation rule will only be applied by the Examination Board upon student’s request: submit your request via the Online Request Form. Your GPA will be calculated by the Department for Exam Administration, whereafter the Examination Board will send you the final decision. Please note, compensation requests for B2/3 will only be processed when all grades of B2/3 (including retakes) have been registered in Osiris.
