James Boswell Access Exams

We organise English access exams for the following subjects:

The exams will cover the complete Dutch VWO high-school programme of the subject. A translation of the programme can be found on the exam registration page.

Many universities require the passing of these exams in Dutch. Always check with the admissions office whether you are allowed to take the English exams. This is often the case for internationally oriented bachelor programmes. Also check your deadline for passing the exam in order to be admitted before September

It is possible to prepare for these exams by participating in one of our intensive courses in the Spring, Summer or Fall. Alternatively, if you've already passed those subjects at a higher level and you are only deficient in one or two topics, you could opt for distance-learning. Distance-learning is not offered for complete courses and not possible during the summer period: a full-time course in Utrecht is more effective to pass the exams.

  • For the year 2019-2020, the exam seasons will be similar that of 2018-2019. The new dates will be added in the fall. You can check the exact date at the registration page. The exam fee is 102 euro (2019-2020).
  • Only register for an exam after you are certain about the requirement and date. It is not possible to change the exam date or cancel enrollment after your registration is processed.
  • When you are enrolled in a course you are automatically registered for the exam following the course. In that case do not register for the exam seperately.
  • If you need extra time due to medical reasons and have a doctor's certificate, you can apply for extra time up to two weeks before the exam date.
  • Registration closes 5 work days before the examdate.
    Explanatory note: This means your registration and payment should be processed by the website at the end (23:59h CET) of the 6th work day before the exam date. Bear in mind the official Dutch Public Holidays.
  • The registration for the August exams will be closed several days after the publication of the results of the July exams.
  • The results of the August exams will be published in the last week of August.

For a few medicine tracks, you are required to pass the CCVX science exams (in Dutch). If you have to pass the CCVX exams, we strongly recommend you study for these exams in Dutch, either by studying yourself using Dutch VWO study-books, or by participating in one of our Dutch access courses.

Please contact us if you have any questions about the exams, the acceptance of the exams and the exam requirements.
