Studying for exams

Exam clashes

Do you have two exams in one day? Then submit a request in time not to schedule the exams at the same time.

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. They 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.

Economics and Management

If you have two ( or more ) exams on the same day, please contact the Planning department (planning-tisem@tilburguniversity.edu ) immediately to request for these exams to be scheduled in a different time slot (morning, afternoon).

Such an e-mail needs to contain the following information:
* the codes and names of the courses concerned;
* the date of the exams.

Attention! The deadline for sending in a request lies 28 Days (4 weeks) before the date of the Exam. We will try to avoid overlap, but there are no guarantees.

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.

Humanities and Digital Sciences

We do our best to avoid scheduling exams of compulsory courses from the same program and the same year on the same date. However, it is impossible to prevent examinations being held in all possible combinations. As soon as you know that two (or more) exams are scheduled on the same day, contact the schedulers of the School immediately to request that these exams not be scheduled at the same time. The TSHD scheduling team can be reached via: tsh.rooster@tilburguniversity.edu

Please indicate clearly in the e-mail which exams are involved:

  • course code + course name
  • exam date
  • The program (Major and Minor) you are following.

Submit your request on time!

  • Please note! You can submit your request up to 28 calendar days before the examination date.
  • Exams are scheduled 4 weeks in advance (time and room). From that moment on, it is no longer possible to process requests. Make sure that your request is submitted well before that time.

Requests to schedule exams at different times are submitted to the Examination Planning department by the scheduling team. Efforts will be made to avoid overlap, but we cannot guarantee this.
