Reexaminations

A student who has failed an examination has the right to try again (with new questions). There is no limitation of the number of re-examinations you can do. If you have passed an examination, you cannot take it again to improve your grade. You must register for re-examinations at the Ladok before a specific date. You may also do a re-examination at the next regular examination date. If you wish to do this, you must contact the course leader in advance and ask to be registered on the course.
