You are permitted to take exams during a leave of absence. However, this does not apply to portfolio examinations!! If you are registered for an exam that takes place during your leave of absence, you must de-register from the exam if you do not wish to take it. If you do not de-register, a non-excused absence will be assumed and the exam will be recorded with a grade of 5.0.
Repeat examinations during a leave of absence
If you applied for a leave of absence, this exempts you from applying for an extension of the deadline for taking repeat examinations. Once the leave of absence has concluded, the deadline once again takes effect without special notice.
Final theses during a leave of absence
If the submission deadline for your final thesis falls during your leave of absence, you must submit an application for extension of the deadline if you do not plan to submit your thesis on time during the leave of absence.
As a student with a disability or chronic illness, you receive compensation for these disadvantages with regards to coursework and assessments. You must submit an application for compensation to the examination board. The same applies to pregnancy, caring for and raising a child up to the age of ten, and caring for close relatives in need of care.
If you do not agree with an examination evaluation, you have the option of requesting a limited reconsideration procedure pursuant to Section 47 of the General Study and Examination Regulations. You must submit the written request for reconsideration to your examination team within three months.
