Examination attempts

Positively assessed examinations may be repeated up to 12 months after they have been taken, but may only be repeated once before completion of the academic programme in question. The positively assessed examination loses its validity after re-taking of the examination.  The mark of the second attempt is counted even if a lower mark is attained. 

Negatively assessed examinations may be repeated up to three times. The fourth attempt (third repetition) must take place before an examination board if the examination takes the form of a single procedure. Upon application the third attempt may also be taken before an examination board. 

In the case of a negative assessment of the last repetition of the last examination of the study programme, students are entitled to repeat the examination one more time.

If the last attempt is not positively assessed, you will be barred from continuing the respective degree programme at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna. You may still be admitted to the same programme at another university.
