Exam registration rule in Neptun
signing up for an exam: 24 hours prior to the exam time
deregistering from an exam: 36 hours prior to the exam time
Please note! Student can have one valid exam registration for a subject at a time, which means that you cannot register for two or more dates of an exam at the same time.
Official terms to understand:

Bettering exam / Upgrading exam
in case of exam successfully taken student can take one bettering exam only once
first of all you have to write a request addressed to the Educational Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org), so it is not automatically allowed
e.g. if you received grade 4 for the first time when participating the exam, but you would like to go for a 5, you can give it a try – but please note that the latest grade will be valid, even if it is worse grade (3, 2, 1) than you received for the first take
Conditions of participating at an exam
valid exam registration in Neptun
student must identify him/herself to the examiner (e.g. passport, identity card)
Not showing up at an exam
In case of not showing up at a registered exam (absence), the exam chance becomes used, “absence” will be registered to the exam result.
Absence may be certified by medical certification (which has been issued by the Occupational Health and Work Hygiene Center and identify the exam properly [Pécs, Nyár street]) submitted after the exam. Only in this case the notification can be modified to “certified absence” in the Neptun – the exam chance may not be considered to be used from then.

(the student shall add the debt to his/her Neptun account and pay it online BEFORE the exam registration of the third or any further exam)

(the fee is to be imposed by the Central Registrar’s Office in Neptun within 20 days after the exam period)
It is the responsibility of the student to check the notifications, registered information regarding his/her exams and grades in the Neptun.
