General Information

Withdrawal from Examinations - Spring Semester 2020

Withdrawal requests are exceptionally not required for exams of the spring semester (in contravention of § 28 (1) of the Framework Ordinance and section 5 of the Fact Sheet for Examination) based on the cancellation of failed attempts as decided by the Executive Board of the University, and therefore do not have to be submitted in the Student Portal. However, students who are prevented from attending an oral examination are required to inform the responsible department immediately after the reason for the prevention has arisen.

Dishonest Conduct

The cancellation of failed attempts of the spring semester decided by the Executive Board of the University does not apply to those that were generated in the course of dishonest conduct as outlined in § 36 of the Framework Ordinance and section 3.4 of the Fact Sheet for Examination.
