At Wolfert Bilingual everything related to the School Exams (SE) and the Central Exams (CE) is meticulously regulated. All rights and obligations, together with the exam norms and requirements, are set out in the exam regulations. All information concerning these regulations can be found in the Final Examination Decision (Eindexamenbesluit 2018) and the Rotterdam Education Board Examination Regulations (BOOR Examenreglement 2018) . This page on the school website gives details of all exam programmes and exam timetables.

Programme of Testing and Achievement (PTA)

The official designation for the school exams is Programme of Testing and Achievement (PTA) (Programma van Toetsing en Afsluiting). The PTA applies to students in Years 4and 5 of bilingual and regular havo and in Years 4, 5 and 6 of regular and bilingual vwo. The PTA includes a section of the exam regulations. Students and parents are expected to familiarise themselves with the content of the PTA.

Central Exam

The Board of Tests and Examinations (College voor Toetsen en Examens, or CvTE) has a site which gives comprehensive information about the Central Exams (CE). Additional information about the CE is also available at Examenblad.nl.

Time table exams

Please refer to the Dutch part of the website for the time tables.


If a student misses an exam for a legitimate reScason, the parents must complete and sign a declaration of absence. It must be possible to substantiate the reason for absence. The declaration of absence must be handed in to the exam secretariat (room 301) on the day that the student returns to school.

Transfer to VAVO

In exceptional cases Wolfert Bilingual can decide to transfer a student to general secondary education for adults (vavo). The School Group has established certain guidelines to cover this eventuality.

As part of the reduced regulation experiment, Wolfert Bilingual also has the option to offer its own pupils a vavo education programme.
