Withdrawing from an Examination due to Medical Reason

Any student who cannot attend an examination due to medical reasons must submit an official medical certificate (signed by a doctor) and a written cancellation application no later than 5 workdays after the examination date (Saturday is a workday!). The medical certificate must prove that the candidate is unable to appear for the examination, and must be dated no later than the scheduled examination date.

If the student is too ill to submit the medical certificate in person within the permitted time, he/she must ask someone else to submit it as a proxy. If finding a proxy is not possible, it is absolute necessary that the student notifies the Central Examination Office by telephone. At any rate, it is always better to notify the examination office, no matter how, than to contact the office too late or even not at all.

This regulation applies for all Bachelor’s programs and Master’s programs in Computer Science.
