a) 5.2 - Request for appraisal of an exceptional condition, for not complying with the regular deadlines or another condition -  if, within the appraisal of the decision, it is considered that the request was submitted due to an omission or doubt of interpretation concerning rules and regulations of the UC. Therefore, the fee paid will be credited in the platform’s current account of the requester;

b) 5.3 - Reappraisal of an exam - if the exam’s grade is changed, due to a mistake in the first appraisal. In that case, the fee paid will be credited in the platform’s current account of the requester.

[6] The exemption from paying fees provided for in paragraph e) in previous number 5 is applicable to applicants, who may be selected or hired within the aforementioned competitions, that may be under way, even if their recognition’s process has already been concluded, provided that the recognition had been requested at the University of Coimbra, in all the cases.

[7] The exemptions established in this Resolution remain in force for 5 years, unless otherwise stated.

[8] If the requester is from one of the member states of the European Union, he/she benefits from a reduction by half of the fees provided for in numbers 5.6.3 e 5.6.4 of the table of fees and other charges of the UC.
