Not able to participate in a test or final examination due to force majeure

If you are not able to participate in the test or final examination of a course due to illness or other forms of force majeure, you must report this as soon as possible to the course coordinator. In case you want to participate in the resit examination (or a supplementary/alternative test) you need to make an appointment with the academic counsellor to submit an official request to the Board of Examiners*#. The request must be accompanied by evidence of the force majeure, so please bring this supporting evidence to the appointment.


Online proctoring

If you cannot take an exam on location due to corona related circumstances, you can submit an official request for an exam via online proctoring as a special provision. You need to e-mail the academic counsellor to submit this request. This request can be made by you and/or your course coordinator/examiner. Please add URGENT proctoring to the e-mail subject. Individual proctoring has to be requested at the latest at 09:00 am on the day before the exam.

If you cannot take an exam on location due to another force majeure (non-corona related) and you would like to request provision for testing in special cases, which might be online proctoring - this may be possible in certain cases. You make your request through the academic counsellor who will discuss it with the Board of Examiners*#. The academic counsellor will let you know if your request is approved.

* This procedure applies in case you are not able to participate in a test (including interim examination, presentations, oral examinations, papers etc.), final examination or resit. If you are not able to participate in another compulsory education component of a course, please contact the course coordinator.

# The formal procedure for non-participation in a test due to force majeure is described in art. 5.8 of the Education and Examination Regulations and art. 2.4 of the Rules and Regulations of the Board of Examiners. See Documents.
