Examination registration and organisational information

Please register online:
- Virtual Central Examination Office for B.A./M.A. Students

If online registration is not possible, please use a form:

1.  All academic examination equivalents in the forms of papers, reports or presentations must - without exception - be registered for the 1st examination period of a semester.  

 2.   All oral and written components of examinations from modules offered by our faculty can be registered for independently of each other in three time periods:

–    WS modules in February, March/April and July

–    SS modules in July, October and February

 3.   The rules pertaining to externally completed modules are determined by the faculties offering those courses.

 4.   All written exams (not oral exams) can be canceled for up to 8 days prior to the examination date.

5. The certificates submitted for oral examinations are only recorded after the lecturers have received the examination protocols. Please wait with enquiries until 1 week after the end of the examination period.

For all Bachelor's and Master's students, there are uniformly two examination periods, each extending over 2 weeks. In principle, the first examination period corresponds to the last week of the lecture period and the first week of the semester break:

  •     the 1st examination period corresponds to the last week of the lecture period and the first week of the lecture-free period.
  •     The 2nd examination period corresponds to the last week of the lecture-free period and the first week of the lecture period of the following semester.

If you are prevented from attending on certain days during the examination period (weddings, internships, etc.), please inform us before the examination dates for the oral examinations are allocated within the registration period. Unfortunately, notifications received later cannot be considered. Requests for a specific examination day are not possible. Requests such as: First or last examination in the period we try to consider.

The AEF's free trial regulations for the summer semester 2021 (corona-related)

The regulation of the winter semester 2020/21 will be continued.
A free attempt will be granted for all examinations taken and failed in the examination periods of the summer semester 2021.

The free attempt regulation will only be applied to examinations of the AEF. Modules and examinations originating from other faculties (import modules) are subject to the regulations of the other faculties. Please enquire at the respective examination offices!

  •     The regulations also include, among other things, presence examinations and homework.
  •     In the case of combined examinations (e.g. presentation + term paper), the following applies: The examination is only considered to have been passed when all examination parts have been submitted in full.
  •     This also includes, for example, repeat examinations from previous semesters that are taken in the summer semester 2021.
  •     The regulation also applies to examinations which are assigned to the summer semester 2020/21 but which take place at a later date for organisational reasons (principle of equal treatment).
  •     A fail by not appearing for the examination also leads to a free attempt.
  •     For students who care for or look after children under the age of 14 and whose learning or examination situation is significantly more difficult due to the closure of schools and day-care facilities, any examination taken and not passed in the winter semester 2020/2021 is considered a free attempt. A copy of the birth certificate must be submitted to the Examinations Office as proof.
  •     No free attempt is granted for failed final examinations (bachelor thesis, master thesis).
  •     Failure to pass due to attempted cheating does NOT result in a free attempt
