This page provides you with important information on exam registration, late registration, de-registration and withdrawal as well as resitting exams.
You need to register for all exams. This also includes courses in which your assessment is based on term papers, presentations, or similar forms of examination. It is your own responsibility to register for your exam by the end of the respective registration period via the student portal.
You often have the option to take your written exam either on the regular or the alternate examination date. However, we strongly advise you to register for the regular examination date so that you can retake the exam on the alternate examination date in the event that you should fail. Should you decide to register directly for the alternate examination date, you will only have one attempt to pass the exam. For examinations that are not written exams, you can only register for the regular examination date.
Late registration for an exam (either for the regular or alternate examination date, provided this is an option for the exam in question) is possible up to three days prior to the respective examination date via Portal². For examinations that are not written exams, the deadline for late registration expires on 27 May 2024. Please observe the applicable deadlines to ensure that your examinations can be scheduled without overlaps.
Change in registration
Students may change their registration for written exams from the regular to the alternate examination date or vice versa up to three days prior to the regular examination date (provided this is an option for the exam in question) via Portal².
In order to make a change in registration please first withdraw from the respective exam in Portal² and then register again for the desired date. For more detailed information, please see instructions.
Withdrawal and de-registration
You can withdraw from a (written) exam in Portal² up to three days prior to the examination date. This also applies to examinations that you have been automatically registered for by way of mandatory registration. If no examination date is indicated in Portal², the general deadline for withdrawal from an exam is 27 May 2024 . The same applies for examinations other than written exams that allow for a withdrawal.
If you do not formally de-register in time, the respective examination will be graded as failed (“nicht ausreichend”; 5,0).
Resitting an exam
If you fail an exam on your first attempt or are unable to take an exam you are registered for due to a valid reason, you may retake the exam on the alternate examination date, provided an alternate date is offered. To register, please turn to your contact person at Student Services as soon as possible after you have received your grade.
