According to the reports of the departments, the second repeat midterm fees are charged in the NEPTUN system by the Central Academic Office (CAO) and the deadline to pay the fee is 5 days.

To register for/drop exams, please go to the NEPTUN/Exams/Exam registration menu, use the filters to set the term "2020/21/2" and "Every subject" then click on the "List exams" button. After choosing the subject and the proper date of the exam, please click the sign + (Options) at the end of the line and choose Register/Drop.

Registration for (or drop) exams can be done only in the NEPTUN system, until noon of the previous day!

You can attend an exam if you have a valid signature of the respective subject (validity of a signature is unlimited unless the course requirement of the corresponding subject regulates it in a different way).

You are not allowed to register for exams in case of outstanding financial liabilities. To check your liabilities, please go to the NEPTUN/Finances/Payment menu, choose the filter "All terms" and "Active status" and click the "List" button.

If you have tuition fee liability outside of the NEPTUN system, please contact your CAO Program Coordinator.

In case of a denied signature, you have to withdraw your registration for the subject's exam you already applied for, otherwise 5.500.- HUF/exam extra fee has to be paid.

If a grade is offered to you in a subject and you accept it then please register for an exam of the subject, so the mark can be entered into NEPTUN by the department. If you do not register on an exam, your offered mark will not be entered into the system „automatically”, the way is through a registered exam only.


from 25th of May to 21th of June 2021

COVID-19 measure: Based on the decision of the Coordination Committee (BME Regulations Concerning the Coronavirus (2019-NCOV) Pandemic), all exams will be carried out online using information technologies. For further information please contact the Department holding the exam directly.


4.1. Improving grades and retaking exams:

The number of repeating exams to improve your grade is not limited during the given term, however, from the third attempt (exams accumulated from 1st of September 2016) you will be charged an extra fee, which is 4.500.- HUF/exam. It means if you had two exams last term, then even for the first one from the same subject this term, you have to pay the above extra fee.

In case of reasonable requests, resits of the repeat exams can be done in front of a committee.

The extra fee for improving a grade or retaking an exam is inflicted in the NEPTUN by CAO, but only after entering the grade in the system. The deadline to pay the fee is 3 days.

Your student status will be terminated according to the law if after 1st September 2012 you fail 6 times completing the same subject or after 1st September 2015 after the 6th registration of the same subject you are unable to collect its credits. The "Request for Equity" (Faculty Chance) can not be used in these cases.


4.2. Absence from a registered exam:

If your absence from a registered exam is justified and you were not able to sit the exam or withdraw your enrolment in time in the NEPTUN, then you have to justify your absence directly to the lecturer (in person or in written form) within 8 days of the absence. If the lecturer refuses the justification then you can submit an E999 request to the Faculty Study Committee (FSC) within 8 days after the refusal.

If your absence on an exam is not justified then you have to pay 5.500.- HUF extra fee.


4.3. Deferred exams:

Article (8) Section 120. of the BME Code of Studies – „Based on student’s request and, in duly justified instances, the Faculty Study Committee (FSC) may allow the student to take an exam after the exam period but not later than the beginning of the next term [deferred exam]”.

You may request to defer any exam with the approval of the Faculty Study Committee through the ‘E013 Request for deferred exam’ in the NEPTUN system. The student has to verify his/her need by attaching official documentation!

If the request is accepted, CAO is issuing a document on the permit. The permit must be presented at the Department teaching the subject, and the date of the deferred exam must be agreed upon with the Department in advance.

The date of the deferred exam is announced by the Department in the NEPTUN system, for which a unique exam application period will be set up. You can register for the exam in the NEPTUN in the same way as for the exams announced during the regular exam period.
