Administratively registered
If the ordinary exam was your first exam attempt, you will be administratively registered for the second exam attempt in the re-exam period.

You need to register yourself 
If (due to cancellation of an attempt) the re-exam was your first exam attempt, you will need to register for your second exam attempt yourself, by registering for the course again when offered

  • You then have to follow the course and pass any contingent mandatory activities in order to participate in the exam (your second attempt) in the following exam period in December/January or May/June.

If you fail your re-exam you will have used two exam attempts.
