Illness during exams

Illness during exams
If you are not able to take an exam due to illness or other mitigating circumstances, you can make up the missed exam at the regular resit. If, due to circumstances beyond your control, you are not able to take this exam either, please consult the academic advisor about the possibility of an additional resit. In many cases, the Examining Board will decide on this.
