Examination modalities

Written exam


We would like to draw your attention to an important passage in the study law regulations of the TU, which have been in force since 05.02.2014:

Deregistration from exams 

§ 18a. (1) Students are entitled to deregister from the examination verbally, in written form or electronically with the examiner or the Dean of Studies up to two working days before the day of the examination.

(2) If students do not show up for an examination without having deregistered in accordance with section 1, the Dean of Studies is entitled to exclude these students from registering for the same examination for a period of eight weeks on the recommendation of the examiner. The period of suspension begins on the day of the examination for which the student has failed to appear despite registering. The students concerned are to be informed of the suspension in an appropriate manner.

(3) If the student can prove that he/she was hindered from deregistering in time according to section 1 by a valid reason (e.g. accident) or another reason worthy of particular consideration, the suspension shall be removed.
