The marking procedureEach participating institute has an examiner who is responsible, on behalf of the institute, for the admission of future students. Together, these examiners form the CCVX.
The CCVX draws up the exams and establishes the standards. The examiners correct the entrance exams and mark them. If you take an entrance exam, you will receive a mark rounded off to a whole figure 1, 2, 3, .. 10. Being 10 the best grade. Marks ending in point five or higher will be rounded up, so 5.5 is rounded up to 6 and 5.4 is rounded down to 5. With a final mark of 6 or higher, you pass. Otherwise you fail.
All examiners use the same correction model so that everyone's work is marked according to the same standard. They sign the result letter and, if you pass, your testimony.
If you are going to study and you know which university you want to apply for, your exam will be marked by the examiner of the university you have registered with. If you answered the question at which institute you would like to study with "Other" on the registration form for the entrance exam, your work will be marked by a random CCVX examiner. Furthermore, the examiners stand in for each other in case of sickness, holidays, etc. In any case, your work will be marked by a CCVX examiner and that guarantees the general validity of your testimony.
After the exam, all the completed exams go to the secretariat of the CCVX. From there, it is sent to the examiners. After the examiners have marked the exam, you receive the result in writing (result letter). If you have passed the exam, you also receive a testimony and two certified copies of it. You will receive these documents either from the secretariat of the CCVX or directly from the examiner.
Since the introduction of the decentralised selection for some study programmes, there are certain deadlines for providing the result. In many cases, an extension is granted if you file a request with the institute you applied for. As some of the institutes have not determined these deadlines yet (the trend is to move them forward), they can still change. The CCVX takes that into account to the extent possible.
The results of the entrance exams of April will be made known before 15 May.
The results of the entrance exams of July will be made known by 15 August. Candidates for the Free University of Amsterdam (Acta and Medicine) will be given priority in July.
The results of the entrance exams of November/December will be made known before 15 January, which is an important date for many candidates.
If you fail the exam, you can request to see your marked exam.
