Examination Appeals Board (CBE)

Art. 7.61 of the Higher Education and Research Act (Wet op het Hoger Onderwijs en Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek (WHW)) gives a list of decisions against which students can bring an appeal to the Examination Appeals Board. In Dutch: College van Beroep voor de Examens (CBE).

These include, e.g. decisions by an examination committee on granting or not granting an exemption, decisions regarding the binding recommendation on continuation of studies and decisions concerning fraud.

What is the success rate of an appeal to the CBE?

Practice shows that the decisions of an examination committee can often withstand the CBE's review of their justification. The annual report 2013 shows that only 17% of the appeals filed in that year were considered well-founded by the CBE.
