Please take the time to read the explanations with the utmost care. They are of great importance for the successful completion of your semester.

Since the technical implementations have yet to be worked out, we ask you to be patient with detailed questions and to visit this FAQ website regularly, where you can find all current information.

 

I forgot to validate my student ID card for this semester. Is that a problem for the examinations?

This semester, due to the exceptional circumstances, it is not absolutely necessary that your student ID card is validated. However, you must still have your student ID card ready for the examination so that your name and photo can be checked if necessary. 

 

Examinations and Assessments

What happens with the examinations and assessments?

The times and dates for the final examinations will remain as announced. Assessments that take place during the semester will be integrated into the digital teaching and adapted if necessary. The lecturer will inform the students about the changes as soon as possible.

Please refer to the Examinations and Assessments Honor Code of the Faculty of Business, Economics and Informatics:

What is the code of honor for examinations and assessments?

The code of honor is an integral part of digital teaching and digital assessments. Awareness and appropriate action are an integral part of any module and assessment preparation. Actions contrary to the principles of the code of honor are punished in accordance with the provisions of the program regulations, section 11.2: The module is declared to have been failed (grade 1 awarded) and disciplinary proceedings. Actions against the code of honor already committed in the run-up to the assessments violate the code of honor and are punished in the same way. Anyone who writes an examination - or parts of an examination- for others must, without exception, expect that criminal proceedings may be initiated.

I have been assigned to the military, civil defence or professional staff. What happens with the examinations and assessments?

If you have received an official order for military, civil defence or professional staff in connection with the coronavirus, special regulations apply to you for the completion of assessments.

The aim of these special regulations is to ensure that, as far as possible, the assessments affected by the service can be completed before the beginning of the next semester. The concrete form of the adjustments can only be worked out after the «extraordinary situation» has ended, as the duration and course of the situation cannot be predicted at the moment. However, you can be assured that the Faculty will offer solutions as soon as the situation allows, taking into account the circumstances that have arisen.
