8.) General information regarding the examinations:

 

General information before you sign up for your exams:

  • All exams including date, time and place are posted on the NEPTUN. Make sure to arrive for your exam on time.
  • Exam dates can be postponed before the NEPTUN closes the registration (usually 24 hours before the start of the exam. By clicking the course code, one can determine when the registration closes), it is your duty, however, to secure another date and time for your exam when you make changes.
  • Students not showing up at an exam will lose one chance unless their absence is accounted for. Documents accounting for the absence have to be presented at the Academic Office.
  • A successful examination can be improved on only in one subject/semester and only with the permission of the Program Director. The requests have to be handed in at the Academic Office.
Please make sure to register for all your exams.

  • Your academic progress will be recorded in the NEPTUN. The examination results will be registered directly in the NEPTUN by the Departments. In case of any discrepancy concerning the written examination results, the test-paper should be investigated.
  • In case of oral examinations, students have to print the “Course and Mark Registration Sheet” (Training/Orientations and training/Course Registration Sheet) from their own NEPTUN site, which has to be presented before starting each oral examination. Students must prove their identity with an official document bearing their picture and their personal data (passport/ID card/student card).

 

Procedure for unsuccessful exams:

  • A Repeated exam can be scheduled at the earliest on the third day following the unsuccessful exam.
  • Upon finishing your examinations, you will be charged for all your unsuccessful examinations in one installment.

ATTENTION! A new repeat examination fee schedule and payment system will be introduced for the Foreign Language Programs. Details on the new fee schedule and payment system will be provided at a later point in time.

  • Unsuccessful exams can be repeated 2 times during the exam period.
  • Try not to be absent from the exam on your first exam attempt, because in the repeat examination period only repeated exams can be taken. First examinations – even with a former absent registration – cannot be taken in the repeat examination week!

 

All matters not regulated in the Study and Examination Regulations of the University of Szeged will be evaluated on individual basis by the Academic Board.
