Students’ access to assessment notes

About assessment notes

The EU Court of Justice has ruled that students are entitled to see the assessment notes of the examiner and co-examiner. Assessment notes are all the corrections and comments that the examiner and the co-examiner are obliged to make in writing – and keep for at least one year – in connection with the assessment of both oral and written exams. This is based on the fact that assessment notes contain information associated with the examinee and are therefore covered by the EU General Data Protection Regulation.

The EU court ruling underlines that the notes must be written with care, so that they can be presented to students immediately upon request, whether they are handwritten, contain abbreviations or are written in a foreign language. It is not allowed to change the notes subsequently.

Students must contact Study Centre Arts to gain access to assessment notes.
