We hereby inform you that no presence examinations will take place in the period from 16.12.2020 to 10.01.2020.
Our department has taken this decision after intensive consultations, as the protection of our students, staff and their families and relatives is our top priority. Of course, the examinations have all been planned under the strictest hygiene and safety precautions, but nevertheless, travelling to and from the examinations alone poses a risk that we cannot justify - in view of the urgent appeals of the federal government and the upcoming holidays.
We have already contacted the chairs involved to clarify how to proceed with the respective exams. The following possibilities come into consideration:
- The exam will take place online at the announced time.
- The exam will be switched to an online format and will take place at a later date (if possible before the start of the regular exam period in February).
- It is not possible to switch to an online examination, so the examination will take place during the regular examination period in February.
For the exams that should take place on 16.12., all registered students will receive an e-mail from the Examinations Office today, for the remaining exams this will take place tomorrow. The email will explain the further procedure for the respective exam in more detail.
We hope for your understanding for this decision, which was not easy for us, and wish you a relaxing holiday season, a good start into the new year and above all good health!
