Examinations: Exam review

Students are allowed to access their examination scripts in order to view the recommended grade and notes of the examiner and to recalculate the points awarded.


Please note the following:

  • You are only allowed to access your examination scripts under supervision.
  • The time allotted for access is defined by the supervisor.
  • You are not allowed to make copies of the exam or the notes written by the examiner.
  • Discussions are not allowed. 


Students who feel they have been put at a disadvantage due to the grade of a written examination can contest the grade by filing an appeal with the Examination Office. According to the Administrative Act, acts of administration must generally be reviewed in cases where students contest the grades of written examinations. If you file an appeal, the examiner is requested to make a statement and the examination is graded again by another examiner. The re-evaluation may result in the examination receiving a worse grade than the original. If an examiner is generally a "tougher" grader than his or her colleague, this is not reasonable grounds for an appeal, but is considered part of the examiner’s right to grade.
