Illness at exams

If illness is preventing you from going to your exam, in some cases it will be a help if you can notify your course manager. Of course this is not a requirement.

If you can document your illness, you can also report your illness to SAP and try to have your exam attempt cancelled.

Report illness at an exam

There are slightly different requirements when reporting your illness, and it all depends on whether your exam is located at ITU or if it is an exam assignment. 

Read the instructions below carefully.

Written exams on premises and oral exams

You can have your exam attempt cancelled, if you can document illness at the day of the exam.

In order to have your exam attempt cancelled, you need to send a medical certificate, documenting illness on the day of the examination within 8 working days after the examination.You also need to fill out and submit the illness form “Report illness at an exam”.
