Extend validity of results

EER

Higher Education and Research Act (WHW) art. 7.13 par. 2k

 

EER BSc art. 4.7

1) The period of validity for the results of an exam that has been passed is six years. The Examination Board may extend this period of validity in individual cases at the student’s request.

2) Test results are only valid in the academic year in which they were obtained. The examination board can extend this period in individual cases at the request of the student.

EER BSc art. 4.1

10) If a student fails to complete a module during the current academic year by passing the relevant exam, then the student may participate in the module once again in the following academic year (as long as the student is enrolled). In some cases, it is possible to carry over test results for specific modules to the next academic year. The programme-specific part of these Regulations specifies the tests to which this provision applies, along with any applicable conditions. If modules are shared by multiple degree programmes, than the specific exceptions are to be identical for all programmes.

The validity of an exam result of the educational programme of MPS is two years. The validity of an exam result for the educational programme of LVHOM has no limitation. At the request of the student, the Examination Board can extend this period in individual cases.

3) Exemptions on these articles are specified in the programme specific appendix.


Validity of units of study

Units of study you have obtained (courses or modules) have a limited validity as stated in the EER. For bachelor courses it is 6 years, for master courses it is 2 to 5 years, depending on the programme. When you want to have the validity of (some or all) units of study extended you can submit a request to the examination board. Explain very clearly the reason for your request.

Add the following components to your request:

  1. Extensive motivation
  2. Detailed Study progress overview (Osiris incl. test-results)
  3. Schedule of the results you wish to have extended
  4. Proposed period of extension and study plan
  5. An acknowledgement from the programme management (contact your study advisor) of the proposed period of extension and study plan

Validity of exams or test results

Results of tests are only valid in the year they are obtained. The examination board can extend this validity on individual basis. Some programmes have stated in their programme specific appendix that for specific modules positive test results are carried over to the next academic year (see EER art. 4.1 par. 10). For those modules you don't need the permission of the examination board for extension of validity.

When you submit a request to the examination board add the following information:

  1. Extensive motivation
  2. Detailed Study progress overview (Osiris incl. test-results)
  3. Information on the test or exam (name of the module or course and test, course code, date of the test result, on what date the next exam is planned)
  4. Module guideline, incl. testplan
  5. If applicable: specific regulations of the programme (fail-pass-regulation)
