WU will make sure that

  • there are enough places for exams during the examination week. All students who sign up for an exam during the appropriate registration period are guaranteed a definite place for the exam.

  • exams of the introductory and orientation phase (STEOP) are not held at the same time to avoid conflicts with other STEOP exams.

  • students are informed of exam procedures (duration, how and when to hand in work, which additional resources are permitted and which are not, etc.) before the exam.

  • all examinations will be conducted according to the regulations. This means that one competent person is available during the exam, sufficient exam papers are available, order is ensured, etc.

  • students are notified of the relevant subject matter in advance, and that the subject matter reflects the material presented in the respective course.

  • in case it is necessary because of an impairment (e.g., disability, chronic illness, physical or mental impairment, reading or writing difficulties), we wil try to make up for any disadvantage you may have due to your impairment during the exam. For example, measuers may include changing the exam mode and/or providing more time for you to take an exam. Please contact our BeAble team to learn more.

In return, WU asks you to

  • sign up for exams within the given registration periods. It is not possible to sign up for exams after the registration period.

  • de-register for exams you have signed up for in time if you decide not to take them. You can withdraw from an exam throughout the registration period.

  • make sure you know when and where the exams will be held and arrive at the exam location ideally about 15 minutes before the exam is scheduled to begin. If you are late, you may be excluded from the exam. Not only that, late-comers also disturb students already taking the test.

  • put away your learning materials and any unauthorized resources so that you will not be suspected of using them for cheating. Do not use any unautorized resources during exams.

  • make sure that your behavior during the exam does not disturb other students. After all, you expect to be allowed to work in peace as well.

  • familiarize yourself with WU's internal regulations regarding the behavior in exam situations and the consequences in case of misbehavior. Lack of knowledge does not protect you from penalty.
