How and when will there be examinations in the winter semester 2021/22?
As usual, two examination periods are planned for the module final examinations (see semester schedule). As usual, dates for oral exams within a certain, module-specific timeframe will be arranged individually.
Further information on examination matters can also be found on the website of the Student Service "Examinations".
Are there any special features regarding exam registration and deregistration?
Voluntary exam participation will be extended again in the winter semester of 2021/2022. This means that failure to appear for the examination will be regarded as a withdrawal. Nevertheless, all students who already know within the applicable deadlines that they will not take part, should cancel their registration in good time. This makes planning easier for the lecturers.
Please note that this does not result in any changes in the duration of validity of the prerequisites for MAP examinations already completed (§ 13 (2), sentence 2 RahmenO). As always, the prerequisites expire after two semesters. There are also no changes to the deadlines for taking free attempts (§ 17, sections 1 and 2 RahmenO).
How are the examination attempts evaluated?
Module examinations of the winter semester 2021/22 (MCA and MAP) that have not been passed will be considered as not having been taken. The result will not be evaluated and the attempt count will not be continued. This does not apply to examinations that were assessed as failed due to an attempt at cheating.
Please note that when exam results are reported, a "failed" or "did-not-show" is initially recorded. The post-processing of the entries by the Student Services may take a while until the entries are "cleaned up".
Please also take advantage of the expected last extension of the regulations to catch up on any remaining delay in exam participation and also to face difficult exams. For your support, the Central Academic Advising Office and the subject-specific academic advising offices will be happy to assist you.
Are there special regulations for final theses?
The processing period for theses (Bachelor's/Master's) is extended by three months. This applies to all theses that were registered after 01 April 2020 and have not yet been submitted. If a further extension is required in individual cases for ongoing theses that do not fall under this, students can submit a corresponding application to the Student Services.
Where can I find support if I have problems in organising my studies?
Please also use the regulations, which are expected to be extended for the last time in the winter semester, to catch up on any remaining delays in taking exams and to take difficult exams.
In addition to the mentors, the academic advisors and the Central Academic Advising Office, students can also contact other advisory offices.
Where can lecturers find advice on how to conduct examinations in online formats?
The multimedia centre's e-learning team has compiled extensive information on alternative examination formats and online examination options (in German).
