Deregistration/withdrawal from an examination
The deregistration must also be carried out on CAMS. Students may only deregistrate if they have not yet completed or are not currently completing individual examinations that are part of a module. Principally, it is possible to withdraw from an examination without indicating a valid reason until one week before the examination date - after this deadline, a withdrawal is only possible on justified grounds. Therefore, the reasons for the withdrawal or the failure to attend must be submitted to the examination board in writing without delay and must be plausible. If the withdrawal is accepted by the examination board the respective attempted examination will not be counted in respect of the number of permissible attempts.
If students fall ill on the date of the examination they have to provide a medical certificate attesting their inability to participate in the examination (a certificate on the incapacity to work - "AU" or a "yellow certificate" will not suffice) and submit the form "Withdrawal from a Module Examination due to Illness" to the Examination Office.
Illness of a child
If - due to the illness of their child - students are unable to attend an examination for which they filed a binding registration they are required to submit a medical certificate issued by their child's pediatrician for the employer ("Medical Certificate for the Payment of Sick Benefits in case of the Illness of the Child", "Form 21") to the Examination Office. In this document the pediatrician certifies that the child is in need of care or nursing due to its illness. By signing the form in the lower half the student confirms that no other person could care for the child.
Any costs students incur in this context have to be borne by themselves. The medical certificate needs to be submitted or mailed to the Examination Office as soon as possible and as a rule within three business days at the latest.

Taking examinations early
Opposition brought against an assessment
In general, an opposition against an assessment of a performance in an examination has to be filed at the Examination Office. Students will have four weeks (as from the official notification of the results) to do this.
There are two possible procedures - the "opposition" and the "protest".
The protest is the quicker, informal procedure. Here, students send a simple letter or an e-mail to the assessor in which they explain why they disagree with the assessment. They can also go to the official inspection of the test papers.
The opposition is the lengthy formal procedure in which students file a written substantiated submission to the Examination Board and have to wait until its next meeting and its formal decision.
Recommendation: Students should always try protesting first. This is quicker and after that, it is still possible to file a formal opposition.
Repetition of examinations
Module examinations that students failed at the first go can be repeated twice, the thesis and the colloquium once each. Once an examination has been passed it cannot be repeated.
During the whole studies it is possible in any module to apply for another sitting of an examination (4th attempt) in form of an oral examination.
