    Everything you need to know about your exams

    Your exams

    Check your exam schedule

    A good start is half the battle. So check your exam schedule on time! Print it just to be sure and hang it on your wall.

    Online and offline exams

    This year we will be organising online and offline exams again. How does it work? You can find all the information on this page.

    Exams and vaccination

    What to do if you receive your vaccination invitation and your appointment coincides with an exam. Don't schedule your vaccination on the day of an exam or the day before an exam. Depending on the vaccination centre, you may be able to pick a date yourself or reschedule your appointment. Read all about vaccinations and exams on this page.

    Know your exam rules

    Your rights and obligations can be found in the Teaching and Examination Regulations. Each faculty has faculty-specific additions and deviations to the central Teaching and Examination Regulations, which can be found on the faculty pages.

    Illness during your exam

    You should let your faculty know you are sick (also Covid). In case of force majeure you can ask to reschedule an exam. Check your faculty page for all information about force majeure.

    Make sure you don't forget anything

    Avoid extra stress on the day of your exam. Take the time to prepare everything the evening before your exam. What do you need? Student card, pencil case, bottle of water, calculator, public transport pass, face mask... Also check the time and location of your exam to be sure.

    Online exams

    Technical problems online exam

    Nothing worse than a technical problem during an online exam. It is therefore absolutely necessary that you install and test the tools a few days before your first online exam. In case of technical problems, please contact the ICT Helpdesk via helpdesk@vub.be (don't leave it until the last minute).

    Did you still encounter a technical problem during your exam? Contact your professor immediately. Check this page for more information. Bookmark the link now.

    Tip: Restart your computer 30 to 15 minutes before the exam.

    Bike, car, train or metro? How to get to your exam
