Students enrol on resits according to the campus or degree programme procedure. 

Enrolment for resit exam


To increase flexibility in organising resits, we have set up EXAM studios and started to use electronic resit service. The first studios were opened in Hämeenlinna, Riihimäki and Valkeakoski and they are open daily. EXAM service and electronic exams provide flexible ways of taking monitored exams, see instructions in the bottom of IT-services page>>
