During their studies, students may take examinations in modules more than those required. The results of those additional modules are not counted towards the creditpoints and are not included in the calculation of the overall grade relating to the degree. Addtional modules can be modules of Faculty 09 or modules that have been recognised by the examination board, which correspond to the scope of the Special Regulations.
Attendance in modules of Faculty 09 as additional modules is possible, if seats are available. Availability can be checked in Stud.IP or by contacting the module coordinator.
The successful completion of additional modules is shown in an additional certificate.

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.
