17.2.2021Extension of the postponement of the exams in presence until 7th March

Dear students,

in an earlier mail from 11th February we have - due to the extension of the Corona lockdown - already announced to postpone all exams in presence in February to the next summer semester, where the date is still to be determined.

This postponement will now be extended and now concerns all exams in presence until 7th March.

The following points from the earlier mail are still valid:

  • This concerns only exams in presence. Exams that have been converted to digital exams will take place on their scheduled dates.
  • These rules concern exams which are organized by the Faculty of Engineering. Other faculties may have slightly deviating procedures.
  • The exams will postponed and held during the lecture period of the next summer semester. We expect to be able to set up and communicate the schedule in March.

There are currently no decisions concerning the exams in March and April yet. We will first wait how the decisions of the German government from 10th February will be implemented in North Rhine-Westphalia.

The corresponding exam will be listed without a date in the HISinOne system. Your registration for this exam will remain and will be transferred to the new date. If this new date is not suitable for you, you will still have the possibility to deregister until one week before the exam. If there is a date change in the system, you should usually receive a notification mail. Still, please check your account regularly.

When in doubt please contact the corresponding lecturer.

If you are close to the end of your studies, there is the possibility to ask your examiner to do the examination at an earlier date, possibly in the form of an oral online exam. If this concerns you, please contact your lecturer and prove that you would be able to conclude your studies in the winter semester with the exams that you registered.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Barbara König
(Dean of Studies of the Faculty of Engineering)

2.2.2021Examinations in winter semster 2020/21

Dear students of the Faculty of Engineering,

due to the corona pandemic we are facing a difficult exam period with many uncertainties. We are taking the concerns and fears of the students seriously and want to inform you about the current state of things.

Our rector has declared digital exams to be the norm, while exams in presence are the exception. Hence our faculty has informed the lecturers to switch to digital and virtual distance exams whenever possible.

Currently many lecturers are making the transition to digital exams and we asked them to inform the students as early as possible about the procedures. The dates (day and time) of the exams will be kept as they are, as far as this is possible.

Exceptionally, it is possible to organize exams in presence if they cannot be held digitally. We will certainly not have exams in presence when the corona rules of North-Rhine Westphalia valid on the day of the exam disallow this. If the current corona measures are prolonged beyond 14th February, the planned exams in presence will have to be cancelled on short notice and postponed. For these exams it will be necessary to establish a new plan.

If an exam is allowed and held in presence, we will certainly make sure that the rules are followed: suitable distances, ventilation, wearing of masks, possibly smaller groups, etc. These exams could then take place in the newly erected aluminium hall (on the parking lot, close to LE).

The rules for free trial exams (Freiversuch) is analogous to the last semester, see §13 in the corona rules of the university:

Further information of the University of Duisburg-Essen on the corona pandemic can be found here:
https://www.uni-due.de/de/covid-19/index-en.php

For questions concerning specific exams, please contact the responsible lecturers.

I am aware of the fact that this exam period will be very challenging for all of us and I want to thank you for your constructive cooperation.

All the best and stay healthy,

Barbara König
(Dean of Studies of the Faculty of Engineering)

Examination Insights

In principle, inspections can be postponed until the required presence can be reestablished. This is handled differently by the institutes, depending on the number of exams and available staff. Objection periods against exam results are suspended until the exams can be viewed again.

In case of failed exams, the students concerned should be offered the opportunity to inspect the exams before the registration phase for the next exam phase.
