All modules are completed with a final examination. Each semester has three examination periods. These are scheduled for the end of the lecture period (1st examination period), for the end of the semester break (2nd examination period) and take place during the following semester (3rd examination period). The exact dates of examination periods are defined by the examination committee each semester and are published on the website in the document Deadlines.
Registration for Examinations
In order to be entitled to take part in an examination you have to be registered for it. You can decide for each examination whether to take it during the first or second examination period. In any case you have to make sure that you are registered for the examination as otherwise the achieved grade will not count. Before the examination takes place the lecturers receive a list of all registered students, which will be checked before starting the examination.
Each examination period has its own registration period, within which you can register in FlexNow. The 3rd examination period is only intended for re- and repeat examinations. You cannot register yourself for this examination period.
Please recheck your data in FlexNow after having performed a registration and verify that you are registered for the correct module examination. Furthermore, please keep the confirmation mail, which you will receive in you university e-mail account, carefully for further questions.
During the registration period you can also deregister from an examination in FlexNow without giving reasons if it is an initial examination. In case you are registered for an examination and you do not take the examination it will be deemed failed.
Below you find a step-by- step guide on FlexNow illustrated with screen shots.
