Illness / absence - exam deregistrations

The deregistration from an oral or written exam is only possible for compelling, unpredictable and unavoidable circumstances. Immediately after the occurrence of such a compelling reason - but at the latest within five working days - a written deregistration request with supporting evidence must be lodged via the student portal using the "My Requests" tile. The candidate of an oral exam must also deregister the exam with the respective chair.
