Examination regulations

The Study and Examination Regulations govern the proper course of study for each degree program. They consist of a general section A, which applies equally to all bachelor's/master's degree programs, and a special section B, which contains specific regulations applying only for the respective degree program. Only students who are enrolled in and re-registered for this degree program, who have not lost their right to take examinations for this degree program, and who have not been de-registered compulsorily or at their own request, may take examinations for this degree program.

HKA grading system

The following marks are to be applied when assessing the individual examination credits:
1 = very good: an outstanding performance
2 = good: a performance well above the average
3 = satisfactory: a performance corresponding to average requirements
4 = sufficient: a performance which, whilst it has shortcomings, nevertheless still meets requirements
5 = non-sufficient: a performance which, owing to its grave deficits, no longer fulfills requirements

1 - 4 are passing marks.  In order to allow a differentiated assessment of the examination performances, the individual marks are changed by intermediate values that may deviate from the integral marks by ± 0.3; the marks 0.7 and 5.3 are excluded.
