We are looking forwar to get in contact with you!
Lecturers are requested to conduct as many examinations as possible without physical presence and, if necessary, to change the form of examination. Such alternative examinations are not linked to the planned examination periods. For exams that require attendance, we try to orientate by the examination periods as far as possible. You can find the exact exam dates via Stud.IP. Changes concerning the form of the examinations have to be announced four weeks in advance at the latest.
Exam registration summer semester 2020
Until July 2, 2020, 12:00 noon (10 days prior to the start of the examination period) you can register in FlexNow for exams in the first examination period of the summer semester 2020 and deregister again. As the holding of attendance examinations is currently very time-consuming, we would like to ask all students to register conscientiously and thus make planning and organisation easier for the lecturers. Participation in examinations of the summer semester is not possible without registration in FlexNow.
The ban on online exams published by the university administration on 8.6.2020, at 10:30 a.m. refers to exams with online systems that require a permanent connection to the server, e.g. online exams in Ilias. Only this is called an electronic exam. Not affected are homework-like formats, where tasks are first downloaded and then uploaded again after processing.
Non-appearance / Case of illness
Anyone who cannot take part in an examination that is in the responsibility of JLU due to illness must in any case deregister with the respective examination office before the examination. Non-appearance at the examination date without prior cancellation is considered a failed attempt. However, against the background of the corona pandemic, it is not necessary to present a medical certificate until further notice.
If you can not take an exam for which you are registered in FlexNow, you must send an email to the examination office (a phone call is not sufficient) that you cannot take the exam due to illness. In FlexNow a medical certificate is then noted. You will then be automatically registered for the next possible examination period. Initial registrations in FlexNow will therefore remain.
Third examination period wintersemester 2019/20
We are trying to create a third exam possibility for the wintersemester 2019/20. Currently, this is imaginable at the end of October after the second examination period of the summer semester: 19 - 30 October 2020. Whether this can be realised remains to be seen. You cannot register directly for exams in the third examination period. These are re- or retake exams of the second examination period, for students who did not pass them or who have sent an excuse due to illness via email to the examination office.
Please inform yourself about current deadlines and dates of the department on the website of the examination office.
