Useful information about the exam period and the end of the study period

Courses ending with mid-semester grades:

Please make sure your mid-semester grades and signatures (for e.g. Physical Education) have been submitted in Neptun until the end of the study period or no later than the end of third week in the exam period. Should something be missing or false, please contact the course instructor.

"If the course program requires mid-term exam and the student fails to fulfil this, the given department provides an occasion to repeat it in the academic term-time. Should the student fail this occasion as well, a new occasion must be offered until the end of the third week of the exam period to repeat the midterm exam." (see Rules and Regulations, Article 8 Course requirements). If a student fails to complete a course due to the excess of the maximum number of absences, he/she cannot obtain credits for the course. " The permitted number of absences from these classes shall be three absences per semester in case of subjects with weekly practical classes, and two absences in case of subjects with practical classes every two weeks. " (see Rules and Regulations, Special Provisions for the Faculty of Agricultural, Food Science and Environmental Management, Section 6).

 Offered grades:

If a student has an offered grade in Neptun, he/she can accept it or decline it under "Subjects", then "Offered grades" until the end of the examination period. If he/she fails to make a statement until the aforementioned deadline, the course will show up as "not completed".

If a student is given an offered grade in Neptun, he/she should not register for an exam date in Neptun because he/she will not be able to accept the offered grade (exam regisration blocks approving an offered grade).

Information on exam registration (for e.g. number of exam attempts, retake exam fee):

Please do not forget to register for the exams on Neptun (in the event of courses ending in an exam grade). Without exam registration a student is not allowed to sit for the exam. If a student has signed up for an exam previously but failed to deregister from it on time, it counts as an attempt. In this case the note “missed” will be submitted on Neptun. Exam registration is possible with a signature (previously submitted by the course instructor) on Neptun. Only students who do not have outstanding charges (for e.g. unpaid items on Neptun) are allowed to register for exams. Exam registration on Neptun: Under “Exams”, then “Exam registration”.

Within one examination period a student has maximum three attempts: exam, retake exam, repeated retake exam. The maximum number of examination dates per subject/course shall be three. If a student selects the third exam date as his/her first attempt, then he/she should be aware of the fact that this will be his/her last chance in the given examination period. After the retake exam (second exam registration), there is exam fee to pay (3 000 HUF). Please ensure there is enough money on your Neptun account because transferring money to it may take at least 3 working days. If a student has already taken the exam and the retake exam (in one subject/course), he/she has to pay for all further exam opportunities (exam registrations in previous examination periods count). An exam grade can be improved in the given examination period. Improvement in another examination period is not possible.

Rules and Regulations (Article 21,Retaking a Successful Exam for a Better Grade ”, page 65)

(1)    If students wish to improve the grade or assessment that they have already received, they may do so in maximum two subjects per semester and once per subject within the examination period. The assessment and the grade received at the make-up examinations shall be final, except if it is failed, which may be then improved in another retake according to the relevant regulations on failed examinations.
(2)    The grade received after the retake of a passed examination may not be improved any further.

Rules and Regulations (Article 19, "The Order of Examinations")

(7) "Students may submit a written proof of an excuse for missing an examination within three working days at the Education Office (that is to say International Office, Faculty of Agricultural, Food Sciences and Environmental Management). If they manage to do so, the office shall delete their registration for the examination. Missing an exam shall not influence in any way whatsoever the assessment of the student's knowledge. If students fail to appear for the examination, their knowledge may not be assessed."

(8) "Missing an examination without a legitimate cause shall result in recording "failed to appear" in the academic system. In such a case students shall have missed one potential chance for taking the examination during the semester at all, the record "failed to appear" shall be entered in their lecture book, too, by the Education Office (that is to say International Office, Faculty of Agricultural, Food Sciences and Environmental Management). If the student does not sign up for an examination during the examination period at all or signs up but fails to appear, a "not completed" entry is to be input into the academic system."
