Examination regulations

Information on the examination regulations (PO): Bachelor's program in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology

The following regulations for late registration for examinations apply to the study programs of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology:

  • Examinations registered for the first time cannot be registered for later. Corresponding applications to the Examination Office or the Chairman of the Examination Committee will generally be rejected.

  • Repeat examinations must always be registered and taken by the next possible date within the deadline; otherwise they are considered to have been failed ("administrative five").
    • If the registration for the repeat examination was missed for serious reasons, a subsequent registration (in written form) can be requested from the chairman of the examination board. If the request is approved, the chairman of the board of examiners will register with the examination office.
Basics:
  • § 20 of the examination regulations is decisive.
  • Passed study and examination achievements may not be repeated.
  • Repeat examinations must be registered independently. (There is no automatic registration)
  • Repeat examinations must be taken within two semesters; otherwise they are deemed to have been failed. (If there are serious reasons, the chairman of the examination board can approve an exception to this rule, see above)
Possibilities of repetition:
  • The orientation examination (fundamentals of electrical engineering including basic practical training) may only be repeated once. If the student fails an orientation examination, it may be continued orally.
  • The Bachelor thesis may only be repeated once.
  • Any two examinations (except the orientation exams and the Bachelor thesis) may be repeated a second time. If the second repetition of these examinations is also not passed, then this may be continued orally.
  • All other examinations may only be repeated once. An oral continuation of these repeat examinations is not permitted.
Free shot regulation:
  • § 28 of the examination regulations is decisive.
  • The prerequisite for the use of the free shot regulation is the acquisition of 100 LP by the beginning of the
    fifth semester. (For details and exceptions see § 28, paragraph (1), (3) and (5)).
  • In this case, a further failed examination can be declared "not undertaken" (application to the Examinations Office.) This only applies if this failed examination was taken within the standard period of study.
  • In addition, in this case, passed graded pieces of work can be repeated in a maximum of two modules to improve the grade. (Application to the Examinations Office.) The repetition must be undertaken at the latest on the next but one examination date. This also only applies if the relevant examination was taken within the standard period of study.
Loss of the right to examination:
  • If a repeat examination, in which the number of permissible repetitions is exhausted, or an oral continuation of a repeat examination is not passed, then the entitlement to examination in the Bachelor's programme in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology is lost.
