Exam clashes Social and Behavioral Sciences

The following information is applicable if at least one of the two exams concerns a Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences course.

Exams for compulsory courses of the same program ánd the same year are not planned on the same day. However, it is impossible to prevent Exam clashes in all conceivable combinations.

As soon as it is clear that two exams fall on the same day, you can send a request not to plan the exams at the same time to owplanning.TSB@tilburguniversity.edu. Such an e-mail needs to contain the following information:

  • your name and ANR;
  • the codes and names of the courses concerned;
  • the date of the exams;
  • your program specializations.

Please submit your request in time!

The deadline for sending in a request lies 28 Days (4 weeks) before the date of the Exam.

4 Weeks previous to the Exam date, the examination schedule (time and room(s) is made. From that moment, it is no longer possible to submit requests. So please make sure that you send your request well in advance.

The best thing to do is go over your Examination schedule at the beginning of the semester to see if you have any clashes. If so, send in a request for the entire block, semester or year straight away.

The requests not to plan interim examinations at the same time will be collected by a scheduling employee of the TSB Education & Research Institute (ERI). ERI will subsequently communicate the requests to the Student Administration, provided that meeting a request that would accommodate one student does not lead to a situation in which a large group of students is allocated to an unfavorable time. Submitting a request is not a guarantee that it will be honored.

Please note:

Only for students who have send a request before the deadline, an alternative solution will be arranged. When necessary they are offered the opportunity to make two Exams one after the other in the same room. Students who did not send a request in time do not qualify for this.
