On this page, we have collected all relevant information regarding the organisation of exams for the faculty of sciences and bioengineering sciences.

For general guidelines, see vub.be/en/backtocampus and the Teaching and examination regulations.

 

Exam schedule

As usual, the exam schedules are published on the page ‘Exam Schedule’.

 
Force majeure

For this exam period, we distinguish between two types of force majeure:

  • Force majeure due to Coronavirus (Covid-19)
    Only to be submitted if you are no longer able to attend exams that physically take place on campus, for example because you are currently not residing in Belgium.
    Use the temporary form 'Application Form - Force Majeure (WE)'
    Deadline: August 1st, 2020
  • Regular force majeure
    For example, because of illness or because of the death of family member.  
    Use the regular form ‘Request form for displacement of exams for reason of force majeure’, which you can find on the page ‘Forms and regulations’
    Documentation to substantiate this force majeure should immediately be sent to facwe@vub.be.

The request does not automatically guarantee a new date or type of exam. The examinator will decide, for either type of force majeure, whether it is possible to organise a new exam.   

 
Multiple examinations at the same time

Use the form ‘Request form for displacement of exams for reason of multiple examinations at the same time’, which you can find on the page ‘Forms and regulations'.

The examinator will decide whether it is possible to organise a new exam.
