Attention Please: Registering Simultaneously for PT1 and PT2 Will Result in a Registration Error!

Students must carefully check their modular examination registration before May 20, 2017!

Only the first date will be allocated to you, which means that your preferred option might not be the one that will actually be submitted to the Central Examination Office (ZPA)!

For details of how to proceed if you have already registered simultaneously for PT1 and PT2, please read the information below.


Important Information on Examination Registration for Winter Semester 15/16 - PT1 or PT2?

Frequently Made Examination Registration Errors

Registering for the first and for the second examination date (PT).This is technically possible and cannot be altered by the system. However, only one of the two dates, i.e. the one that you register for first, will be allocated to you and submitted later to the Cental Examination Office (ZPA) as the relevant examination date.

So please double check your examination registration and ensure that you have only registered once, i.e. for the first examination date (PT1) or for the second one (PT2) via the modular registration prcedure. Up to the deadline that is given in the respective modular registration procedure, you can register and deregister as often as you like. If you realize that you have registered for both of the examination dates, please correct your registration!

What difference does it make if I register for examination date PT1 and not for PT2?

Registering for PT1 (recommended!): If you register for the first examination date via the modular registration procedure, you can, as a rule, withdraw from the examination via the VZPA (Virtual Central Examination Office) within the 3 working days prior to the examination date. Following a withdrawal, submission of a sick certificate, or a 5.0 grade in PT1, you are allowed to take part in the second examination. But please note that you must yourself have actively registered for the second examination date at least one week beforehand with the VZPA.

Registering for PT2 (be careful!):You are refraining from taking part in the first examination and are registering via the modular registration procedure directly for the second examination. Please bear in mind that the School of Business and Economics only offers examinations in the semester in which the course is also offered. This means that potentially a resit examination might not be possible until the next winter semester. Once the deadlines have expired, you cannot change your mind about examination registration dates!
