2. RegistRATION for exams:

between: 18:00 CET, 6th of December, 2022 – 23:59 CET, 27th of January, 2023

To register/drop exam dates, please go to NEPTUN/Exams/Exam registration menu, use the filters to set the term „2022/23/1" 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.

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).

Registration or withdrawal (drop) of exam dates can be done only in NEPTUN, until noon of the previous day. If you have any expired financial liabilities, you are blocked from registering for exams!

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

The Department may set an individual exam registration period for the oral partial exam of a comprehensive exam, as well. Exam dates may be advanced by the Department for the Repeat/delayed submission period. This individual exam registration period may end not earlier than 72 hours before the exam / comprehensive exam.



Part 1: 19th – 23rd of December, 2022

Part 2: 9th – 27th of January, 2023


Due to the energy saving measures, it is highly recommended that you follow the updates published on the BME website, in case of any changes in the organisation of the exams and monitoring academic performances. Please be aware of the information sent by the Departments and lecturers as well.

3.1. 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 of the same subject 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 NEPTUN by CAO, but only after entering the grade in the system. The deadline to pay the fee is 3 days.

Your legal relationship with BME will be terminated according to the law if after 1st of September, 2012 you fail 6 times completing the same subject or after 1st of 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.


3.2. Deferred exams:

Upon request, in particularly justified cases, students may take a so-called deferred examination after the examination period, based on the decision of the Study Committee of the Faculty (FSC). The reasons given in the request must be supported by a certificate.

An important change is that according to the amendment of the Code of Studies and Exams of BME effective from 2nd of February, 2022, deferred examinations can only be taken within fifteen days after the examination period.

If the application is accepted, the CAO will issue a decision on the authorisation. The decision must be presented to the Department teaching the subject and the date of the deferred examination must be agreed in advance with the Department. The date of the deferred examination will be posted by the Department in NEPTUN, for which a specific examination period will be set. The student can register for the exam in NEPTUN in the same way as for the exams announced during the exam period.
