What does an examination regulation govern?
The name suggests it: An examination regulation regulates examinations. It thus specifies which examinations have to be taken in order to achieve the desired degree. At the same time, however, the examination procedure is also laid down: What is to be done when and by whom. This is to ensure that examinations take place under similar conditions and that all students have the same chances of passing an examination.
In particular, examination regulations regulate the following fundamental aspects:
- Name of the degree programme and attainable degree
- Number of ECTS credits in the programme and standard period of study
- Special admission requirements for enrolment in the programme, e.g. internships
- Composition and tasks of the Examination Board
- Types and forms of examinations (e.g. written or oral examinations)
- Registration for and de-registration from examinations, withdrawal form examinations (e.g. in the event of illness)
- Assessment (grades) and passing and failing of examinations
- Repeat possibilities, number of repeats and their deadlines
- Deadline for registration for examinations, i.e. at what time an examination has to be taken for the first time at the latest.
- Certificate documents
- Specify the examinations to be passed (in an appendix to the examination regulations)
Since examination regulations are quasi laws, they are usually written in a legal language and therefore not easy to read. If you have any questions, please contact the staff of the Examination Office / Services for Distance Learning Students.
