At the beginning of December we sent a letter to the Executive Board, together with party Front, concerning the third chance examination regulation when it is not possible for a student to take an examination due to corona-related reasons. First of all, we asked the Board to reconsider online examinations. If this was not an option, we would like to see a university-wide third chance examination option for all students. In addition, we urged the university to quickly clarify the line of policy regarding the third chance. The Board indicated that the administration of exams was safely arranged and that it would therefore not work with online exams. In addition, the Board indicated that it could not offer a generic third chance to all students because of the exceptional position of a third chance. The Board stated that the university would work with a numerical third chance, whereby students could apply for it individually. However, the Board did indicate that the examination boards would be generous in assigning the third chance. In several meetings after the letter was sent, we urged the college to communicate clearly and quickly with the students. The Board fortunately picked up this signal by clarifying and speeding up the communication.
