Examination Board


The Examination Board is responsible for everything that has to do with examinations, be it the recognition of achievements, the extension of deadlines for papers, ensuring the proper conduct of examinations or other applications such as certificates or the like. Here, decisions are made on the practical interpretation of the examination regulations. It is the preliminary instance in disputes concerning examinations, for example about certificates that cannot be recognised or appeals against the determination of grades.

In addition, the Examination Committee discusses the development of examinations and study times on the basis of statistical evaluations of study times, dropout rates and examination results, as well as any problems that may have occurred during the previous examination period, in order to be able to make suggestions for reforming the examination regulations, the study regulations and the curricula.

The committee regularly meets twice a year at the beginning of each semester. The responsible representatives of the Centre for Student Affairs are also present at these non-public meetings. All applications and questions received are discussed and the previous examination period is debated. Of course, applications can also be submitted at any time during the semester, which are also processed as quickly as possible and finally recorded in the minutes at the official meeting dates.

Applications to the examination board are addressed to the chairperson in the form of a business letter.
