Regulations, procedures and documents overview

Here you can find several important regulations and documents applicable to Applied Mathematics (AM) students.

There are specific requirements for getting access to some parts of the AM bachelor programme, for example for the minor in module 9 and 10 and the graduation semester in module 11 and 12. If you want to know more about these requirements, please check the current general EER and the programme specific EER for the AM bachelor programme.

Covid-resit request

For each course for which you request a Covid-resit, you should fill out one form. (Below you may download the form in pdf-format.) You should do so at the latest one week after the publication of the final grades of the course.
For information about the Covid-resit policy, see the Bachelor Applied Mathematics Canvas page (item: "Covid-resit").


Any course is assessed by an exam. This exam can consist of a number of tests and varies per course. The way in which the tests lead to the exam result is laid down in a test plan for each course. This plan is published at least two weeks before the start of the module on the Canvas page. Where and when the tests will take place can be found in the module’s timetable. Any changes, for example test data, will be made announced on the module’s Canvas page.


An overview of all the rules concerning assessment can be found in the Education and Examination Regulations (EER), Article 4 – Education and Examination.

Form Alteration BSc Study Programme

If, for whatever reason, you have to change your BSc programme, please fill out the accompanying form and send it to the examination board (address on the form). Your study advisor or the programme coordinator may help you with this matter.

Binding Recommendation (BSA)

The Binding Recommendations (BSA) have been sent, by email, on Tuesday, 11 August 2020, to all of you who are supposed to receive them.  If you think you have received an unjustified negative BSA, you may request a hearing with the AM programme board.  Please do so by sending an email to Dr P.K. Mandal (, with subject "Request for BSA 2019-20 hearing", by Wednesday, 19 August 2020.

The hearing will take place on Tuesday, 25 August 2020, 13:30 - 15:30. After the hearing, at the latest on Wednesday, 26 August 2020, the programme board will inform you, by email, about the decision. The latter will be your final BSA.

See the webpage of Student Services for more information. 

The first-year students of BSc-AM (enrolment 2019-20) will receive mid-August by email a Binding Recommendation (BSA).  Due to the COVID-19 crisis, in the current academic year (2019-20) no negative advice will be handed out. A positive recommendation will be issued to those who satisfy the required criteria.  For the others, the final recommendation will be postponed until the end of the academic year 2020-21.  

Bachelor students (enrolment 2018-19) whose recommendation was already postponed, will receive a binding final recommendation -- either positive or negative.

Any student who does not agree with the received decision may request a hearing with the AM programme board within 5 workdays following the date of the email. You can send your request to Dr P.K. Mandal via email:

The date of the hearing will be announced; it is very likely to take place in the week of 24-28 August 2020. After the hearing, the programme board will inform you by email about the decision. You will then receive the final BSA. This can be a positive BSA or a postponed BSA (for cohort 2019-20) or a final positive or negative BSA (for cohort 2018-19).

In case of personal circumstances, you must inform your study advisor and submit your assessment application before 30 June. So, you must have a meeting with the study advisor well before 30 June.

Bachelor's Exam

The Bachelor examination

The bachelor programme is concluded with a final examination by which the examination board decides if a student has passed. When you are nearly finished with all courses it is time to apply for the bachelor examination. Usually this is the case when finishing your bachelor assignment. By applying for your bachelor examination you also apply for your bachelor diploma. You can use the following registration form:

On this form you can indicate what you will do after your bachelor AM. If you indicate you want to continue with a master's programme at the UT, BOZ will forward this to the student administration. When the examination board has confirmed the passing of the bachelor examination BOZ will also indicate this to the student administration. Bring or send your registration form to BOZ-AM (, Citadel room H429)

For the bachelor programme there is a monthly meeting of the examination board and usually one bachelor graduation ceremony. In 2020 this ceremony will take place on October 9. The meetings of the examination board usually take place in the last week of the month; you can apply until the first week of the month. In the summer months this schedule may deviate. You can find the meeting schedule on the website of the examination board.

If you have any questions regarding this procedure, please contact BOZ:
