Repeating Examinations

Students who have passed qualifying subject examinations (=Fachprüfungen) and lecture examinations can repeat the examination once up to twelve months after the initial examination date.
Students who have passed course examinations (=Lehrveranstaltungsprüfungen) (aside from the lecture examinations) can repeat the examination once after the course has been offered again.
If repeating an examination, the grade awarded on the previous examination will become null and void.
If you receive a lower grade, the second grade will still count.

Students may repeat examinations taken for the Studies Introduction and Orientation Phase 3x (four attempts)

Students may re-sit for an examination up to four times (5 attempts). All examination attempts in the same subject for all respective subjects at the same university count.

After repeating an examination three times (subject examination, lecture, lecture with exercises, courses and combined courses) the examination will then be conducted by commission provided the examination is in the form of a single examination procedure.
Upon request by the student, the second examination attempt can also be conducted by commission.
The last examination attempt (4th attempt) will be conducted by commission (no exceptions); in regards to courses with exercises and seminars, the examination commission will base their decision in regards to each individual case and will determine how previous performances can best be concentrated in the current examination therefore making a grade by commission accessible.
After the student's hearing, the Examination Board chairman is required to notify the Vice-Rector of Academic Affairs (e-mail to: vizerektor-lehre(/\t)

Übungen (UE) can be also be referred to as Arbeitsgemeinschaft (AG), Intensivierungskurs (IK), Praktikum (PR) or Proseminar (PS) within the curriculum.
Kurse (KS) can also be referred to as Vorlesung mit Übung (VU) or kombinierte Lehrveranstaltung (KV) within the curriculum.

Students who fail an "Übung" course and a seminar must repeat the entire course.
Students will receive a course grade after completing the course and course examination; in order to repeat the course examination the rules pertaining lecture examinations apply in that when repeating an examination, non-repeatable sections from a lecture examination cannot be included in the grade.

If the student received a failing examination grade before October 1, 2003 , the following regulations in regards to repeating examinations in accordance with the laws governing university studies apply:
1st Part of Studies = 3 repeat attempts (4 attempts)
2nd Part of Studies = 4 repeat attempts (5 attempts)
