Article 29 Education and Examination Regulations

    1. The examiner establishes the result of an examination in writing and registers this result in Osiris.
    2. The result of an examination is rounded to and expressed in full or half points between 1 and 10.

    If a mark is below .25 then this mark will be rounded down to .0. Results ending between .25 to .75 will be rounded off to .5. Results ending in .75 and above will be rounded up to .0.

    1. Contrary to the provisions of paragraph 2 of the present article, the result of an examination is not set at 5.5 points. An arithmetical score lower than 5.5(0) is rounded to 5 and a score equal to or higher than 5.5(0) is rounded to 6.
    2. If the result of an examination equals or is more than 6.0 points, the examination is considered to have been passed. If the result of the examination equals 5.0 or is less than 5.0 points, the examination is considered not to have been passed.
    3. Contrary to the provisions of paragraph 2, the examiner may, if necessary, express the result of an examination in a qualification ‘requirements (not) met’ (‘(niet) voldaan’) rather than in points. If the result of an examination should be established in this way, this is described in more detail in the overview in the course manual.
    4. If an examination that has already been sat is resat, the more recently obtained result always determines the result.
    5. If the result of a midterm exam equals or is more than 5.5 points, the midterm exam is considered to have been passed. If the result of an midterm exam is less than 5.5 points, the midterm exam is considered to have been failed.
    6. In addition to the provisions in paragraph 7 to 9, a student cannot be registered for a midterm exam that has been passed.
    7. In addition to the provisions in paragraph 7 to 10, a student can only be registered for a failed midterm exam if the examination which the midterm exam is part of has not been passed, i.e. if the arithmetical score of the examination is lower than 5.5(0).
