Re-examination registration

Courses with continuous assessment

There are no re-examination for courses with continuous assessment. For such courses a student may only register for the ordinary scheduled examination in the course. This applies even if you have legitimated reason for absence or failed the exam in a course with continuous assessment.

Legitimate reason for absence or failing your exam

If you have a legitimate reason for absence from a written intermediate exam or failed such an exam you may register for re-examination. Legitimate reasons for absence from an exam might be illness or other special personal circumstances.

  • Please note that a certificate confirming the legitimate reason for absence must be sent within 5 working days.  
  • Please read more about who can register for re-examination in Academic regulations for NMBU
  • You may register for re-examination on Studentweb (Registrations -> Registrations for classes and exams)

If you do not sit/turn up for your exam you cannot register for re-examination, but must register for the ordinary scheduled examination in the course.
