Exams in Media and Communication Science

Booking and cancelation

By booking a module you are automatically registered for the associated assessment(s). Should you fail to appear for the exam, the correspondingly module shall be marked as «failed» on your record of achievement.

Exam dates

In general, you can find the exam dates in the online course catalogue and your instructor will inform about them accordingly.

Procedure for withdrawing from examinations due to illness

In the event of illness you can submit a written withdrawal request up to five working days after the date of the assessment. Fill in the form in the box at the top right and mail it with the scanned doctor’s certificate to the examination delegate of IKMZ.

By doing so, you shall avoid a failed attempt and be admitted to a postponed exam (Nachklausur). In the compulsory modules, this shall take place at the same time as the retry exam (Wiederholungsklausur). If, after being allowed to take a postponed original exam, you decide not to take part, you need to deregister in writing (e-mail) with the  IKMZ office by, at the latest, five working days before the date of the exam.

Procedure for withdrawing from examinations due to other valid and verifiable reasons of impediment

In the event of other valid and verifiable reasons of impediment, you can submit an informal written withdrawal request up to five working days after the date of the assessment addressed to the examination delegate of IKMZ.
Exam clashes do not constitute a valid reason! The same rules as in case of illness are applied for participation/cancellation in/of postponed and retry exams.

Retry exams

There is no retry exam for the elective and core elective lectures. Should you fail, the module must be re-booked or replaced by a different elective or core elective lecture. Even if a compulsory (elective) lecture is offered multiple times, it is only permitted to be repeated once.

You must carry ID with you in all exams, sessions reviewing past exam papers and at all other formal occasions attended in person. Please always bring your student ID along to do so.
