According to the Corona statutes, in the winter semester 2020/21, regulations deviating from the TF examination regulations guarantee

the studyability of study programmes as well as teaching and examination operations that are as trouble-free and flexible as possible. The Dean of Studies for Teaching and Studies is responsible for deciding on the above-mentioned changes.

Decisions on changes to examination forms or alternative examination forms for modules which are explicitly mentioned in examination regulations are announced on this page. The same applies to repeat examinations for modules from the summer semester 2020, which for technical reasons cannot be announced in the module handbook. Furthermore, changed examination periods will be announced there.

For modules from the winter semester 2020/21 that are not listed in an examination regulation, the module handbook (see UnivIS Lecture and Module Directory by degree programmes) will provide information on the examination form and, if applicable, two possible alternatives from 2 November 2020. If alternative examination forms are indicated, the examiner will inform the student at least four weeks before the examination date which of the examination forms will be used.

If a programme of study requires modules to be postponed between semesters, this will be announced on the respective programme pages (see https://www.tf.fau.eu/studying/prospective-students/degree-programmes/ for a list).

Attention:

The regulation according to which failed examinations belonging to the summer semester 2020 are cancelled no longer applies to the winter semester 2020/21. Failure to pass is therefore possible again.

Cancellation of examinations is now also regulated again in accordance with ABMPO §7 (3): If the examination is cancelled due to illness, a medical certificate from a doctor of confidence must be submitted, otherwise the examination will be deemed to have been failed.

Nevertheless, there are far-reaching simplifications regarding the withdrawal from examinations, which were laid down in §5 (2) of the Corona Statutes (version dated 04.08.2020):

1. 1 Withdrawal may be effected simply by not attending the examination. 2 Late arrival is generally deemed to be excused. 3 The obligation to present a medical certificate in the event of non-participation in registered university examinations is suspended. 4 In the event of non-participation in these examinations, no medical certificate (issued by a doctor of confidence) need be presented – non-participation is deemed to be excused. 5 No failed attempt due to non-attendance will be registered.
2. 1 In the event of withdrawal from or failure to take the first attempt at an examination, the registration will expire. 2 In the event of withdrawal from or failure to take a repeat attempt, compulsory registration will be made for the next examination date.
3. 1For final theses (Bachelor’s and Master’s theses) and examinations which are part of the university examination in law, the regulations of the applicable study and examination regulations shall apply. 2In so far as necessary, extensions of deadlines have been or will be granted for final papers; further deviations from the provisions of the study and examination regulations may be granted on application to the competent examination board.
