Cancellation of exams

valid for all study programmes and external examinations

Up to four weeks before the beginning of each examination period (until January, 7th 2024) students can deregister from their exam by written notice to the examination office. After this period, an exam is considered  "fail" (5). If the candidate does not appear for the examination without a good reason or if he/she resigns from the test after the beginning of the exam without permission .
The contact person of the examination office must be informed in written form without delay about the reason for withdrawal or absence. The reason must be shown credibly. As far as the examination committee has already begun its work, the notice is made to the committee and included in the examination protocol. In case of the student's illness, a medical certificate is required and in cases of doubt, an official medical certificate may be due. If the reasons are accepted, a new appointment for the examination will be set. The existing examination results will be considered.

Resit of examinations

valid for all study programmes and external examinations

  • A failed test may be repeated twice at the request of the student. Failed attempts at other universities will be considered.
  • Passed exams cannot be repeated, exceptions are free trials (i.e. exams, which were taken before the semester under terms of the recommended study schedule or with elective modules, before the last recommended semester in the study regulations).
  • The student must take the first resit of a failed examinationwithin one year after completion of the examination attempt at the latest. The second repetition is to be completed by the student at the earliest possible date. Otherwise, the resit examinations results will be considered "fail" (5).
