Examination modalities

The proof of achievements will be evaluated by a written exam at the end of the lecture period

In order to take part in an examination, it is necessary to register in time (for the respective examination date) in TISS. Students who do not meet the registration deadline cannot take part in the exam! Enquiries in this regard will not be answered!

Examination Barriers

In accordance with the study regulations (Mitteilungsblatt 2014, 3. Stück; Nr.22), the following rules apply to the cancellation of examinations.

§ 18a. (1)) The students are entitled to cancel their examinations orally, in writing or electronically with the examiner or dean of studies at the latest two working days before the day of the examination.

(2) If students do not appear for an examination without having cancelled their registration in accordance with paragraph 1, the Dean of Studies is entitled to exclude these students from the registration for this examination for a period of eight weeks at the suggestion of the examiner. This period begins on the examination day on which the student, despite having registered correctly, did not appear without having cancelled his/her registration beforehand. The affected students must be informed of the suspension in an appropriate manner.

(3) If the student can prove that he/she has been prevented from deregistering in due time in accordance with paragraph 1 by a valid reason (e.g. accident) or another reason worthy of special consideration, the suspension must be lifted.
