Exam rules

Exam rules

All courses and projects contain one exam or multiple exams, called part exams. The exam may, for example, be a written exam (on campus), an oral exam, a written home assignment/report, or a practical exam. See examples of different exam forms at DTU Inside under 'Study rules'/'Exam'/'Forms of examination'.

The exam's objective is to assess the extent to which the student meets the learning objectives defined for the course or project. The exam must reflect the overall course objectives, learning objectives, and content. 

Students are entitled to three exam attempts in each course or project. Students can apply for an exemption for further examination attempts. Find more information at DTU Inside under 'Study rules'/'Exemption, leave, and maternity/paternity leave'/'Exemption'.

The assessment form type, examination date, the learning objectives, etc., can be found in the course descriptions at DTU Course Base.
