You are required to wear a face mask throughout the entire examination.
If you are at risk or in contact with someone at risk according to the RKI criteria (whether professionally or privately), and you are unable to avoid contact, you may submit a “Request to Change the Method of Examination” to your relevant examination board. Please be sure to do this in good time. You should submit appropriate proof with your application. The Representative of Students with Disabilities and Chronic Illnesses can assist you with your request. The Department of International Affairs provides assistance for international students.
You are permitted to briefly remove your mask to take a drink or bite or change masks. Please avoid speaking without the mask to prevent the spread of aerosols.
If you fail to adhere to the distancing and hygiene regulations, the exam proctor is authorized to take steps to ensure compliance or request you leave the room and discontinue the exam for the safety of others.
Your exam will then be assessed depending on the circumstances of the individual case.
If you would like to register your final thesis, please contact your exam team by email. The procedure otherwise remains unchanged. This means that the following steps are required for registering a final thesis:
Applications to the Examination Committee for extensions of repeat examinations which have been either canceled or from which students have withdrawn are not required from 12.03.2020. The coming summer semester (2020) will also not be counted in the calculation of deadlines for repeat examinations. In other words, deadlines which expire on 31.3.2020 or 30.9.2020 will be automatically extended until winter semester 20/2021 - i.e. 31.3.2021 (the same procedure as applies to academic leave of absence).
All requests for extensions which are justified before 12.3.2020 and are not related to the outbreak of the coronavirus, must continue to be assessed and decided on by the Examination Committee.
Please refer to the press release of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research for information on how the current situation affects BAföG.
