If you would like to take an exam during the pandemic but
you may submit a Request to Change the Method of Examination (forms differ based on degree program). Please make sure to submit your request early to allow sufficient time for processing.
You can find general information from the Examination Office about failed exams not counting as attempts as well as de-registering from examinations on the page of the Examination Office.
You can de-register from an exam without providing a reason up to three days before the written and oral exam, up to the day befor the first component of portfolio. For other examinations, for example homework, the examiners determine the deregistration deadline.
If deregistration is no longer possible (three days befor written or oral exam date or the day befor the first first component in Portfolio-Exam), students may withdraw. They must always submit proof of the reason for their withdrawal request (Section 63 (6)).
You can find the request form on the website of your degree program examination board or your faculty website. Please complete the form - make sure to include the reason for your request as well as potential alternative methods of examination. The scope of the assessed work or examination must be the same.
You must submit supporting documentation. Examples of documents include:
Send the completed form to your examiner from your TU email account. In your email, ask the examiner to forward your request to the relevant examination board (include the contact information) after they have reviewed your request as well as to inform you of further steps taken or to return the processed request to you.
Please note: Please CC your examination team in your email so that they are aware of your request.
After you have sent all your examiners your request(s), please email your examination board (from your TU account) and inform them of your request(s) even if you are still waiting for a reply from your examiner(s). Include your supporting documentation (such as a medical certificate). Make sure to also include the following information in your email:
You will be informed of the examination board’s decision. Please send this decision to your relevant examination team.
You will then complete the approved examinations/assessments.
If you have questions or would like to discuss something with the examiner, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
