How do I register for the main exam?

In order to obtain a grade you need to register for the exam by completing the following two steps:

  1. Register in the "Exam" booking pool on the ILIAS course website. We will use this information to print the correct number of exams and to assigns seats to you. The booking pool will become available approximately 1 month before the exam. Deadline: You need to register in ILIAS at the latest one week before the exam takes place.
  2. Register in the ALMA portal. All students must also register through ALMA. For some courses or students registration through the ALMA portal might not possible (eg, if Master lectures shall be accredited for Bachelor studies) in which case you do not need to register through ALMA. Please visit this website for more information. Deadline: You need to register at the latest one week before the exam takes place.

How can I cancel my exam participation?

The deadlines for canceling the participation of a registered exam can be found here. Cancellations during the registration period are performed via the ALMA portal. Afterwards, students can cancel by sending an email to their examination office. The email must include the title of the course, the name of the lecturer and the date of the exam. Additionally, students must unregister from the exam booking pool in ILIAS. If this is not possible anymore, an email must be sent to the lead TA as indicated on the course website.

In case a student cannot participate in a registered exam due to health reasons, a doctoral attest must be send to us at the latest 3 working days after the exam. Otherwise, the exam will be graded with 5,0.

Is there a second exam? Am I allowed to participate?

For all courses with written exams we are offering a make-up exam. Students can register to the make-up exam also if they have not registered to / participated in the primary exam. Important remark: We are not offering a third exam. This means that if you decide to participate in the make-up exam but not in the primary exam, you are waiving one examination chance.

Where can this lecture be accredited for?

You can find the information for which study area a course can be chosen in Campus in the so-called "Strukturbaum". After opening the course of interest, scroll down. As an example, consider the lecture Self-Driving Cars. For ML Master students, this course can be accredited either in "Diverse Topics in Machine Learning" or "General Computer Science".
