Do you disagree with an examination board decision?

You may lodge an appeal with the Examination Appeals Board (COBEX) if you do not agree with a decision made by the Examination Board or by an examiner or examiners. Appealing against a decision may be done at COBEX via the digital service point: Objections, Appeals and Complaints Office.

When are you exempted?

  • You have passed interim examinations and examinations elsewhere at Bachelor’s or university education level which in terms of content, scope and level correspond to the module or work placement for which you are seeking an exemption.
  • You have gained relevant knowledge, skills or work experience at Bachelor’s/university education level. Check with your degree programme what the possibilities are for having this work experience count as an exemption.

How do you apply for an exemption?

  • Submit a request stating reasons to the examination board, before commencing the study component for which you are requesting the exemption.
  • Include documentary evidence with your request demonstrating that you fulfil the requirements for the study component for which you are requesting an exemption.
  • The examination board ascertains with the aid of the documentary evidence submitted whether you fulfil the requirements for the study component in question.
  • The examination board will inform you of its decision within four weeks of the date on which it received your request.

How is your exemption indicated in SIS?

Exemptions are shown in the summary of results in SIS with the description ‘exemption’.

NB: A partial examination for which you are granted an exemption does not count in the calculation of your final mark for the study component in question.
