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 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 registration through the ALMA portal is not possible (eg, if Master lectures shall be accredited for Bachelor studies). In this case, you need to manually register with the examination office responsible for you using this form. 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 Campus 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.

In case a student cannot participate in a registered exam due to health reasons, a doctoral attest must be send to the examination office at the latest 3 working days after the exam. Otherwise, the exam will be graded with 5,0 / no participation.

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

For most courses, a second exam is offered. The second exam typically takes place towards the end or during the examination period of the next semester. The mode of examination will be either written or oral, depending on the number of participants.

Only students that have participated in the first exam and failed, as well as students that could not participate in the first exam due to health reasons are allowed to participate in the second exam. In this case, a doctoral attest must be send to our administrative assistant.

Students interested in participating in the second examination must contact our administrative assistant directly after the main examination. They will be informed about the mode of examination and the date in due time.
