Changed regulations for examinations

Created by Pressestelle |

In order to mitigate the consequences of the corona pandemic for the students, the regulations on examinations were adapted.

In its special session today, the Senate adopted a university-wide framework examination regulation for this purpose. These regulations regulate the examination deadlines and the examination procedure and apply to all degree programmes.

The following fundamental regulations were made:

  • Students can decide for themselves whether or not to accept individual examination results from the summer semester 2020. If an examination result is rejected, the examination must be taken again in the same examination attempt, whereby the later examination result counts.
  • Alternative examination performances (ALP) can also be taken after the examination session until the end of the summer semester 2020, subject to the agreement with the examiner.
  • Oral examinations and alternative examination performances (ALP) in oral form can be conducted by arrangement with the examiner using a video conference system determined by the university.
  • Examination performances taken and not passed in the summer semester 2020 are considered as not to have been carried out without any deadline regulations applying in this respect.

In addition, a second examination period from 14 September to 2 October is introduced, which will be added to the summer semester 2020. Courses in the winter semester will thus begin on 12 October 2020 and end on 30 January 2021.

The current regulations are published in the FAQ for students at www.htw-dresden.de/corona.

These regulations are intended to keep the burden on students as low as possible and to clarify legal uncertainties with regard to the recognition of study and examination achievements.
