The regulations for module examinations and doctoral studies of the faculty 09 are defined by the respective Specific Regulations. The responsible committee ensures compliance with the regulations and decides on cases which are not defined by the regulations.
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 Fristen und Termine (examination periods and deadlines)
Examination periods and 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.

In case you failed a module examination, you will have a second try in each module. A third try is possible in four different modules at maximum.
The registration for a repeat examination is carried out automatically for the next possible examination period. Should you have failed an examination or you did not attend an examination, you will be automatically registered for the next possible examination period. This will happen without any action on your part. You cannot cancel this registration in FlexNow.
In Case of Illness
If you cannot attend an examination for reasons beyond your control (e.g. illness), your absence shall be excused upon submission of a corresponding proof. In case of illness you have to hand in a doctor’s certificate, which has to be received by the examination office within 3 working days after the examination’s date. Please hand in the certificate together with the Beiblatt zum ärztlichen Attest / Supplement Sheet to a Medical Certificate. If the certificate is accepted, the examination will not count as failed, but has to be repeated during the next possible examination period. This registration is effected automatically.
