Important Information for Master Students in Computer Science
E-mail-address for questions concerning Computer Science study
For lectures, where grades are based on a single examination at the end of the lecture, three examination dates are offered within a period of two semesters. The examination dates and the link to the registration/cancellation are available at the course catalogue at the respective lecture.
From SS 2016 on there are generally deadlines for registration and cancellation from lecture examinations.
- Start of registration: 5 weeks before the examination
- End of registration: 2 weeks before the examination (late registrations via e-mail will not be considered!)
- End of cancellation: Midnight (23:59 pm) before the examination
We strongly suggest to complete the examinations directly after completing the respective lecture!
Repetition of Course Examinations
The third and fourth repetition (= fourth and fifth attempt) of a course examination must be held as a board examination if the examination is conducted as a single examination (e.g. lecture exam). The student may also request that for the second repetition (= third attempt) of a course examination. The student must complete the form ‘Antrag um Zulassung zur Dritten und Vierten Wiederholung zu einer Lehrveranstaltungsprüfung’ (Request for admission to the third an fourth repetition of a lecture exam) and submit it to the Examination Office at least two weeks before the examination. The form and more information are available here.
The Examination Board is selected in consultation with the lecturer according to these requirements. Students are entitled during registration to express preference for a particular examiner (Satzung § 19). The Exams Office will obtain the signature of the Director of Studies.
At the start of each semester, the teachers must inform the students of the examination method of their courses (written/oral). The determined examination method of a course does not change, if the examination is held by an examination board, except a student provides evidence of long-term disability that makes it impossible for him/her to take an examination in the prescribed form (Satzung § 22).
The students are not entitled to an individual examination date, but the determined examination dates of a course must be taken. Individual agreements between students and assessors concerning the scheduling of examinations are permitted.
Failed continuous assessment courses are to be repeated in their entirety.
It is recommended to contact the student representatives.
Procedure for the allocation of places for lectures with a limited number of participants
This procedure is regulated in the Curriculum § 8.
Registered students who are not present in the first lecture of a lecture with continuous assessment have no right for a place in that lecture!
