Dutch as a Foreign Language: resits and deferred exams

Resits

Students who do not pass all of their exams are welcome to take a resit.

This is subject to strict conditions:

  1. You must take the resit within 6 months after the end of your course.
  2. You can only take a resit once.
  3. You can only take a resit if you failed a maximum of two of your exam components. Please note: If you failed both your speaking and writing exams, it is not possible to take a resit.

 

Deferred exams

If there is a good reason why you can’t take the final exams as scheduled, you can defer your exams and take them at a later date. Examples of accepted reasons include illness, a trip abroad or your Linguapolis exam coinciding with another exam you have to take.

This is subject to strict conditions:

  1. You must take the deferred exam within 6 months after the end of your course.
  2. You can only register for a deferred exam if you have valid proof of the reason for your absence on the original exam date (e.g. doctor's note, airline ticket, statement from your employer, exam schedule for your study programme).

 

Registration

If you want to take a resit or deferred exam, you can register by sending an email to nederlands@linguapolis.be. You will need to pay a test fee for resits and deferred exams:

For a deferred ITNA exam or an ITNA resit, you must register via the ITNA website. You then contact the Linguapolis secretary's office to have the fee adjusted (examination fee of €45 instead of the standard fee of €85).

  Standard rate Student/OCMW
Resit € 45,00 € 45,00
Deferred exam € 45,00 € 20,00

 

Practical information (dates & location)

Due to the corona crisis, the limited availability and capacity of classrooms, the exam session in July has been cancelled. The first upcoming exam session will take place in August (see below).

All resits and deferred exams take place on the Stadscampus in Antwerp’s city centre. The speaking exam takes about 15 minutes and you will need an appointment for this component. The secretary’s office will make an appointment for you.

Please find here all ITNA exam dates.

About one week before the exam, you will receive an email telling you exactly which classroom to go to (and the exact time for the speaking exam, if applicable).
