Non-participation in a test due to force majeure

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 (EER) and art. 2.4 of the Rules and Regulations.

If you are not able to participate in a test (including interim examination, presentations, oral examinations, papers, etc.), final examination or resit of a course due to illness or other forms of force majeure, you inform the course coordinator as soon as possible. In case you want to participate in the resit examination (or a supplementary/alternative test) you need to contact the academic counsellor to submit an official request to the Board of Examiners. The request must be accompanied by evidence of the force majeure.

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 working day before the exam.

If you cannot take an exam on location due to a non-corona related force majeure 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.
