Register/cancel registration for exams

When should I register or cancel my registration for examinations?
In principle you should always check whether your examination regulations set specific rules for registration/cancellation. However, for most subjects the following deadlines apply:

  • Examinations
    Registration up to 7 days before exam, cancellation until 24 hours before
  • Oral examinations
    Registration and cancellation up to 7 days before exam date (exam date defined by examiner)
  • Practical examinations
    Registration for the coming semester is possible until two weeks after the end of the course in the preceding seminar, cancellation until two weeks before course start
  • Presentation, paper, records
    Registration and cancellation up to 0 days before exam date (exam date defined by examiner)
  • Hybrid of exams, oral exams, presentation, paper, records
    Registration and cancellation up to 7 days before exam date (exam date defined by examiner)



The window for registration is open for at least 4 weeks. No assessments will be given if you do not register for the examinations!

Where can I find out registration and cancellation deadlines and exam dates?
You can see the registration and cancellation deadlines incl. exam dates in the statistics portal under the heading Exam dates. The following query options are available:

  • Display all examinations for a faculty, on a given date.





How can I find out if my registration has worked? How do I get confirmation of correct registration?
An e-mail will automatically be sent to your university webmail account confirming your registration (accessible via eCampus). You can see which exams you have registered for underSummary of academic attainments (Student Data) or directly you log in on the homepage of FlexNow. If you see the relevant examination with a question mark in front of it, then your registration was successful.

I can’t register for an examination
A common reason for an exam registration not going through is that students want to register for examinations that they are not (yet) entitled to sit, under examination regulations. This is often because requirements have to be met first in other modules, so please check the examination regulations first to see if you are entitled to sit the examination yet! Other reasons: you did not pass the first exam resit in an orientation or compulsory module. In this case please consult a study advisor before making your next attempt at the exam.

Certificates and resitting examinations

When do I have to submit a certificate?
If you do not sit an examination because of illness you must submit a doctor’s note immediately, stating the expected duration of your inability to sit the exam. The certificate should reach the examination office no later than three days after the examination. Your examination regulations will state whether the certificate must come from a public medical officer or other doctor.

Where do I submit the certificate?
If the deadline for cancellation has already passed when you fall ill (see “Register/cancel registration for exams”) please submit the certificate to the examination office of the faculty where you study. If you are studying two subjects in different faculties, please submit the certificate to the faculty where the examination would have taken place. If two examinations are due to take place in different departments/faculties whilst you are ill, please give the original to one examination office and a copy to the other (stating where you have submitted the original).

How do I submit the certificate
If the certificate is not submitted in person, it should be sent on a DIN A4 sheet, stating your personal details (name and matriculation number), the precise name and date of the missed exam and the name of the examiner.
