The University of Sarajevo runs final exams at the end of a particular academic term (semester), typically a quarter or semester, or traditionally at the end of a complete degree course.

To be eligible for testing, most member institutions of the University of Sarajevo require that you register for exams. When you begin your studies, we recommend you inquire about how and when to register for exams in the department(s) where you study. Note that the procedure and deadline may vary depending on the department. You must register correctly and in due time for exams, as you will otherwise not be allowed to take the exam(s).

Students are assessed at the University of Sarajevo after taking one of the types of examinations or active participation: final examination, exam, final interview, or simply final test. In addition, some courses may require completing written and oral assignments successfully during the semester.
