Thesis re-exam

The below concerns the Thesis

First Exam attempt

If you fail to hand in your thesis before the deadline, The Study Administration will contact you via email after the deadline and inform you of the following consequences:

  • You have used an examination attempt.
  • A new submission deadline will be set 3 months after the original deadline.

Within 2 weeks after you have received the email you must make an adjustment to the existing problem statement in co-operation with your supervisor. The objective is to make it more realistic that you will be able to hand in the thesis by the new deadline.

Email the adjusted problem statement to sap@itu.dk and add your supervisor as cc' to the email.

Second exam attempt

If you fail to submit at the new deadline, The Study Administration will contact you via email after the deadline and inform you of the following
consequences:

  • You have used two examination attempts.
  • A new submission deadline will be set 3 months after the second attempt.

In addition to updating your problem statement again, you must make a written plan for the rest of your thesis work, also within a 2-week-limit. The plan should contain an overview of subsidiary goals and planned meetings with your supervisor.

The plan is meant to be a help for you to complete your thesis on time.

Email the adjusted problem statement to sap@itu.dk and add your supervisor as cc' to the email.

Exemption to postpone the submission deadline

In special cases you can obtain an exemption from the submission deadline if, for instance, you have been affected by illness or the death of a close relative. You can also apply if you have become a father or mother.

How to apply

If you want to postpone the submission deadline due to illness or child birth, you must apply for an exemption and submit either a medical certificate or birth certificate as documentation.

In the application, if you are ill, you must explain the circumstances of your illness, and how this has affected your ability to work on your thesis. You need to send it within 8 working days after the submission deadline.

Use the form “Other Exemptions” found on the forms section.
