  • Oral examinations:
    Registration and cancellation up to 7 days before exam date (exam date defined by examiner)
  • Practical examinations:
    Registration for the coming semester is possible until two weeks after the end of the course in the preceding seminar, cancellation until two weeks before course start
  • Presentation, paper, records:
    Registration and cancellation up to 0 days before exam date (exam date defined by examiner)
  • Hybrid of exams, oral exams, presentation, paper, records:

The window for registration is open for at least 4 weeks. No assessments will be given if you do not register for the examinations!

  • Display all examinations for a subject and semester.
  • Display all examinations for a lecturer in a semester.
  • Display all examinations for a faculty, on a given date.

An e-mail will automatically be sent to your university webmail account confirming your registration accessible via eCampus). You can see which exams you have registered for under News in Flexnow. If you see the relevant examination with a question mark in front of it, then your registration was successful.

A common reason for an exam registration not going through is that students want to register for examinations that they are not (yet) entitled to sit, under examination regulations. This is often because requirements have to be met first in other modules, so please check the examination regulations first to see if you are entitled to sit the examination yet! Other reasons: you did not pass the first exam resit in an orientation or compulsory module. In this case please consult a study advisor before making your next attempt at the exam.

Certificates and resitting examinations

If you do not sit an examination because of illness you must submit a doctor’s note immediately, stating the expected duration of your inability to sit the exam. The certificate should reach the examination office no later than three days after the examination. Your examination regulations will state whether the certificate must come from a public medical officer or other doctor.

If the deadline for cancellation has already passed when you fall ill (see “Register/cancel registration for exams”) please submit the certificate to the examination office of the faculty where you study. If you are studying two subjects in different faculties, please submit the certificate to the faculty where the examination would have taken place. If two examinations are due to take place in different departments/faculties whilst you are ill, please give the original to one examination office and a copy to the other (stating where you have submitted the original). Students of the faculties Philosophy, Biology and Psychology, Law and Agricultural Sciences will find a form on eCampus under More -> Forms -> Examination Office's Forms.

If the certificate is not submitted in person, it should be sent on a DIN A4 sheet, stating your personal details (name and matriculation number), the precise name and date of the missed exam and the name of the examiner.
