Extra resit

UvA Economics and Business organizes an extra resit annually for students who have not been able to pass the regular exams of the last course of their study programme.

If you expect to be eligible for the extra resit, please read the information below carefully to make sure that you meet all the requirements.

Requirements for an extra resit

  • Whom is this extra resit for?

    An extra resit can only be granted once for the last course of the programme to students who are registered for a Bachelor’s or Master’s programme at UvA Economics and Business (EB), as well as to students enrolled in an Economics and Business major. Pre-Master’s, minor-, guest- and contract education (CEB) students are not eligible for an extra resit.

  • Conditions for taking the extra resit

    Bachelor’s and Master’s students of EB may take an extra resit in August provided the following conditions are met:

    • The course is offered by EB.
    • The student has successfully completed all courses, except one, of the programme. Repair exams are not taken into consideration. It is therefore possible to request a repair exam for one course (see the conditions below) and an extra exam for another course (which is the last course before graduation).
    • The thesis must be completed no later than the first opportunity of academic year 2021-2022.
    • The student has used both exam opportunities in the current academic year.
    • A mark of at least 5.0 has been obtained for one of the abovementioned examinations.
