Only one assessment opportunity for each part of the course is offered in China. Students that participate but do not pass the course in China are offered a re-take exam in a course at a similar level and with similar but not identical content at Lund University.

The examiner, in consultation with Disability Support Services, may deviate from the regular form of examination in order to provide a permanently disabled student with a form of examination equivalent to that of a student without a disability.
