I. General information

§ 1
Purpose of the examinations, structure and aim of the study programme

1. The Bachelor and the Diploma examinations constitute professionally qualifying degrees of the Computer Science program. The study in the integrated study course Computer Science is divided into two compulsory sections and one optional section:

  • The first part of the course (1st - 4th semester) provides the necessary basis for a scientifically sound study of computer science and concludes with the degree interim examination.
  • The second study section (5th + 6th semester) serves to impart a broad spectrum of general scientific computer science knowledge and concludes with the bachelor's examination, which meets international standards. The industrial internship of a total of eight weeks also falls into this section. The 5th semester is designed in such a way that a semester abroad can be completed without any loss of time. This can replace the work experience.
  • The third study section (7th - 9th semester) focuses on in-depth courses which, building on the preceding contents, impart specialised scientific knowledge. This research-oriented study phase is concluded with the final diploma examination. This degree is internationally comparable to the Master's degrees.

2. The purpose of the Bachelor examination is to determine whether students have acquired the thorough specialist knowledge necessary for professional practice, have an overview of the interrelationships of their subject and have the ability to recognise Computer Science problems, to select a suitable scientific method for solving them and to apply it appropriately.

3. The purpose of the Diploma examination shall be to determine whether, in addition to the knowledge and skills referred to in subsection 2, students are capable of analysing problems and adapting or developing scientific methods or findings to describe and solve them and to apply them.

4. In addition to the general study objectives of § 80 UG, the course of study provides students with the ability to apply the scientific methods of Computer Science in their work and to act responsibly with regard to the effects of technological change.

§ 2
Bachelor and Diploma degrees

  1. If the Bachelor examination is passed, the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science awards the Bachelor degree "Bachelor of Computer Science". (abbreviated "B. Comp. Sc.")
  2. If the diploma examination is passed, the Department of Mathematics Computer Science awards the diploma degree "Diploma in Computer Science" abbreviated "Dipl.-Inform" i.e. "Diploma Comp. Sci".

§ 3
Standard period of study

  1. The standard period of study is 6 semesters for computer science studies with bachelor degree including the bachelor examination, and 9 semesters for studies with diploma degree including the degree examination.
  2. The course of studies includes courses of the compulsory and optional compulsory area with a total of 131 SWS for the bachelor's degree and 176 SWS for the diploma degree. In the first stage of studies almost exclusively compulsory courses (86 SWS) are offered, in the second and third stages almost exclusively elective courses (32 and 41 SWS). The study regulations describe the contents and regulations concerning the compulsory elective courses in such a way that the objectives of the second and third study sections defined under § 1 (1) are adhered to and can be achieved within the standard period of study. In addition, there is room for students to participate in additional courses of their own choice, also in other courses of study.

§ 4
Examinations and examination deadlines

  1. The degree examination is preceded by the bachelor's examination and the latter by the degree interim examination.
  2. The degree interim examination consists of first-semester examinations in Computer Science and a minor subject. It should be completed before the beginning of the second stage of studies, i.e. before the fifth semester.
  3. In addition to the exams of the first stage of studies, the Bachelor exam consists of course-related subject exams of the second stage of studies in the major subject, subject exams in a minor subject and the student research project. It should be completed before the beginning of the third stage of study, i.e. before the seventh semester.
  4. In addition to the subject examinations of the second stage of studies, the degree examination consists of study-accompanying subject examinations of the third stage of studies in the main subject, a subject examination in the field of specialisation, the successful participation in a project group, subject examinations of the third stage of studies in the minor subject and the degree dissertation.
  5. The registration for the examinations should be made at least two weeks before the respective examination date. The written application for admission to the examination (§§ 9, 17, 26) shall be submitted with the notification of the first subject examination of the respective stage of study.
  6. As a rule, the subject examinations of the first and second stage of study are written, those of the third stage of study are usually oral. For the examinations during the course of study, three examination dates are generally scheduled by the end of the first semester following the course.
  7. Students who are more than one semester behind in taking their subject examinations in one study section are strongly recommended to attend a counselling interview. Further details are regulated by the study regulations.

§ 5
Audit Committee

  1. The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science appoints an Examination Board for the organization of the examinations and the tasks assigned by these examination regulations. The examination board consists of five members: three from the group of professors, one each from the group of research assistants and from the group of students. The chairman and his or her deputy must belong to the group of professors. They are elected together with the three other members by the Department Council of the Department of Mathematics/Computer Science. Deputy members are elected for the three other members. The term of office of members from the group of professors and from the group of research assistants is three years, the term of office of student members is one year. Re-election is permissible.
  2. The Examination Committee is an authority in the sense of the administrative procedure and the administrative process right.
  3. The Examination Committee ensures that the provisions of the examination regulations are observed, sets the examination dates and ensures that the examinations are conducted properly. It is also responsible for deciding on appeals against decisions made in examination procedures. In addition, the Examination Committee must report to the Department Council on a regular basis, at least once a year, on the development of examinations and study periods. It makes suggestions for the reform of the examination regulations, the study regulations and the curriculum. In consultations on these issues, the departmental council may appoint an additional advisory member from the group of students. The Examination Committee can delegate the execution of its tasks for all regular cases to the Chairperson; this does not apply to decisions on objections and the report to the Department Council.
  4. The Examination Committee constitutes a quorum if two members from the group of professors and one further voting member from the group of academic staff or from the group of students are present. It decides by simple majority. In the event of a tie, the vote of the Chairperson or, in his or her absence, the vote of the Deputy Chairperson shall be decisive. The student member of the examination board shall not participate in pedagogical-scientific decisions, in particular in the assessment, recognition or crediting of study and examination achievements, the determination of examination tasks and the appointment of examiners and assessors.
  5. The members of the examination board have the right to attend the acceptance of the examinations.
  6. The meetings of the examination board are not public. The members of the examination board, their deputies, the examiners and the assessors are subject to official secrecy. If they are not in public service, they shall be bound to secrecy by the chairman of the examination board.

§ 6
Examiner and observer

  1. The examination committee appoints the examiners and the assessors. It may delegate the appointment to the chairman. Anyone who has passed at least one corresponding degree examination or a comparable examination may be appointed as an observer. As a rule, only those may be appointed as examiners who, in addition to this, have held an independent teaching position at the University of Paderborn in the period of study preceding the examination. The board of examiners may allow exceptions to this rule if compelling reasons require this or in the case of a second examiner in accordance with §12, paragraph 2.
  2. The examiners are independent in their examination activities.
  3. The candidate may propose the examiners or, if necessary, a group of examiners for the course work, the degree dissertation and the oral examinations. If possible, the candidate's suggestions should be taken into account. However, the proposals do not constitute grounds for a claim.
  4. The chairman of the examination board shall ensure that the names of the examiners are made known to the candidates in good time, at least one week before the date of the respective examination.
  5. Section 5, Paragraph 6, Sentences 2 and 3 apply accordingly to the examiners and assessors.

§ 7
Recognition of study periods, study and examination credits, placement in advanced semesters

  1. Periods of study in the same course of study at other academic universities within the scope of the Framework Act for Higher Education and the credits earned in the course of such study shall be credited ex officio.
  2. Periods of study in other courses of study or at other than academic universities within the scope of application of the Framework Act on Higher Education and the credits earned in the process shall be credited ex officio, provided that equivalence is established. Periods of study as well as study and examination achievements at universities outside the scope of the Framework Act for Higher Education shall be credited upon application, provided that equivalence is established. The equivalence of periods of study and study achievements at foreign universities shall be governed by the equivalence agreements approved by the Standing Conference of Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Länder in the Federal Republic of Germany and the West German Rectors' Conference. In the absence of equivalence agreements, the Examination Committee will decide. Otherwise, the Central Office for Foreign Education may be consulted in the event of doubt as to equivalence.
  3. The degree interim examinations and corresponding examinations as well as individual examination performances which the candidate has passed in the same course of study at academic universities within the scope of the Higher Education Framework Act shall be credited ex officio. Diploma interim examinations and individual examinations taken in other courses of study or at other academic universities within the scope of application of the Framework Act for Higher Education shall be credited ex officio, provided that equivalence is established. Instead of the degree interim examination, other examination achievements may be credited in justified exceptional cases, provided that equivalence is proven. Paragraph 2 sentences 3 to 5 shall apply accordingly.
  4. Examination achievements in degree examinations which the candidate has completed in the same course of study at universities of science and humanities within the scope of application of the Framework Act for Higher Education shall be credited ex officio. The same shall apply to graded pieces of work in final examinations of other courses of study or at other academic institutions of higher education within the scope of application of the Framework Act on Higher Education, insofar as equivalence is established.
  5. Proof of performance acquired in state-recognised distance learning courses or in distance learning units developed by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia in conjunction with the other states and the Federal Government shall be credited ex officio as study or examination performances, provided that they are equivalent. In determining equivalence, joint resolutions of the Standing Conference of Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs and the West German Rectors' Conference shall be observed.
  6. Performances which have been achieved with a successfully completed education at the Versuch Oberstufenkolleg Bielefeld in the optional subjects, mathematics or technology will be credited as academic achievements to the basic study period as far as the equivalence is proven.
  7. Applicants who, on the basis of a placement examination in accordance with § 66 UG, are entitled to take up the course of study in a higher semester will be waived in accordance with the result of the placement examination, examination achievements of the degree interim examination or the Bachelor examination. The findings in the report on the placement examination are binding for the examination board.
  8. The examination board is responsible for credits in accordance with paragraphs 1 to 7. Before the findings on equivalence are made, competent subject representatives are to be heard.
  9. If examination performances are credited, the grades - insofar as the grading systems are comparable - are to be adopted and included in the calculation of the overall grade. If the grading systems are not comparable, the remark ''passed'' is included. The crediting is marked in the transcript.
  10. If the requirements of paragraphs 1 to 6 are met, there is a legal claim to crediting.

§ 8
Failure, withdrawal, deception, breach of regulations

  1. An examination performance is deemed to be graded "insufficient" (5,0) if the candidate fails to appear at an examination date without good reason or if he or she withdraws from the examination without good reason after the examination has begun. The same applies if a written examination is not completed within the specified time. For each subject examination, it is possible to cancel the registration at least 7 days before the examination date without giving reasons.
  2. The reasons given for withdrawal or failure to attend must be notified immediately in writing to the examination board and must be substantiated. In case of illness of the candidate, a medical certificate may be required. If the board of examiners accepts the reasons, the candidate will be informed in writing and a new date will be set. In this case, the examination results already available will be taken into account.
  3. If the candidate attempts to influence the result of his or her examination performance by deception, e.g. the use of unauthorised aids, the examination performance in question shall be deemed to have been graded as "insufficient" (5,0); this determination shall be made by the respective examiner or supervisor and recorded. A candidate who disturbs the proper conduct of the examination can, as a rule, be excluded from continuing the examination after a warning by the respective examiner or supervisor; in this case, the examination performance in question is considered to be graded "insufficient" (5.0). The reasons for the exclusion must be recorded. In serious cases, the board of examiners may exclude the candidate from further examination performances.
  4. The candidate may demand within 14 days that decisions in accordance with paragraph 3, sentences 1 and 2 be reviewed by the examination board. The candidate must be informed immediately in writing of any incriminating decisions of the examination committee and reasons must be given. Before the decision is made, the candidate must be given the opportunity to be legally heard.
II. Degree interim examination

      • Mathematics III.2 or
      • Mathematics IV, 3 SWS each, 1 point.
    • Techniques of software design II are assigned to field 2, mathematics III.2 or mathematics IV to field 5. If techniques of software design II or mathematics IV are not selected under no. 7, the first in area 2 and the second in area 1 can be recognized as a subject examination of the Bachelor examination in the second section of the course of study. § Section 17 Paragraph 2 is not relevant in this case.
  5. The study-accompanying subject examinations of the first study section in the main subject are usually written examinations. The board of examiners may allow exceptions at the request of the examiners. The alternative form of examination shall be announced publicly at least two months before the examination.
  6. A subject examination in the form of an examination paper can be repeated twice. An oral supplementary examination is then held. This can also be taken after the first repetition upon request. Sections 11 and 13 shall apply accordingly to the acceptance and assessment of the supplementary examination. If the supplementary examination is graded at least "adequate", the subject grade "adequate" (4,0) is set, otherwise the subject grade "insufficient" is set. The contents of a supplementary examination are the contents of the failed subject examination.
  7. If the candidate can prove by a medical certificate that he or she is unable to take the examination in whole or in part in the prescribed form due to a prolonged or permanent physical disability, the chairman of the examination board must allow the candidate to take equivalent examination results in another form.
  8. Examination results from the degree interim examination may be replaced by equivalent results in a placement examination in accordance with § 66 paragraph 1 UG.

§ 11
Oral examination

  1. In the oral examinations, the candidate should demonstrate that he or she recognises the connections in the examination field and that he or she is able to classify special questions within these connections. The oral examinations are also intended to establish whether the candidate has a broad basic knowledge.
  2. Oral examinations, including supplementary examinations in accordance with § 10 Paragraph 6, are taken either in front of two examiners (collegial examination) or in front of one examiner in the presence of a competent observer (§ 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 4) as group examinations or as individual examinations. Before the grade is determined in accordance with § 13, paragraph 1, the examiners advise the assessor or the examiner hears the assessor in the absence of the candidate.
  3. The duration of an oral examination per candidate (including a supplementary examination in accordance with § 10, paragraph 6) is determined by the sum of the weight points of the underlying course. As a rule, it is 15-20 minutes for one point, 20/30 for two and 30-45 minutes for more than two points, in no case more than 45 minutes.
  4. The main items and results of the subject examination shall be recorded in a protocol. The candidate shall be informed of the result of the examination at the end of the oral examination.
  5. Students who wish to take the same examination on a later date will be admitted as listeners, depending on the available space, unless a candidate objects. Admission does not extend to the consultation and announcement of the examination results.

§ 12
Written exams

  1. In the written exams the candidate has to prove that he/she is able to recognise problems in his/her subject with the aids approved by the examiner within a given time and that he/she is able to solve them with common methods.
  2. Each examination paper in an examination is to be assessed by two examiners in accordance with § 13 paragraph 1 (Comment: this refers to § 6 paragraph 1).
  3. The duration of an examination depends on the sum of the weight points of the underlying course. As a rule, it is 60 to 75 minutes for one point, 120 minutes for two and 180 minutes for more than two points. The examination board may, in agreement with the examiners, shorten the duration of examinations. This deviating duration must be announced publicly at least two months before the examination.
  4. The students shall be informed of the evaluation of examinations after six weeks at the latest.

§ 13
Evaluation of the examination results, formation of grades and passing the degree interim examination

  1. The grades for the course-related subject examinations (subject grades) are determined by the respective examiners. The following grades are to be used for the assessment:

1

=

very good

=

an excellent performance;

2

=

good

=

 a performance that is considerably above

average requirements;

3

=

satisfactory

=

a performance that meets average requirements

correspondingly;

4

=

sufficient

=

a performance which, despite its defects, still meets the

requirements are met;

5

=

not sufficient

=

a performance which, due to significant errors or omissions, does not meet the necessary requirements.
 

By lowering or raising the individual grades by 0.3, intermediate values can be formed in order to arrive at differentiated evaluations; the grades 0.7, 4.3, 4.7 and 5.3 are excluded.

2. The degree interim examination is passed if all subject grades are at least "sufficient" (up to 4.0).

3. The overall grade is calculated from the weighted average of the subject grades (§ 10 paragraph 4). The overall grade of a passed examination is:

with an average up to 1.5

=

very good,

with an average above 1.5 to 2.5

=

good,

with an average above 2.5 to 3.5

=

satisfactory,

with an average above 3.5 to 4.0

=

sufficient

with an average above 4.0

=

not sufficient

4. Only the first decimal place after the decimal point is taken into account when calculating the overall grade; all other places are deleted without rounding

 

§ 14
Re-sitting the degree interim examination

  1. The repetition of the degree interim examination is done by repeating the subject examinations that were not passed or are considered failed.
  2. A subject examination which has not been passed or is deemed to have been failed may be repeated twice. In accordance with § 10, section 6, a supplementary examination shall be held within 4 weeks of the announcement of the result. Failed attempts in a course of study pursuant to section 9(5c) in the same subject at another university shall be credited (section 9(7)). The repetition of a passed subject examination is not permitted.
  3. If the candidate fails to report for the repeat examination within two years after the failed attempt or after the last subject examination, the next attempt shall be deemed to have been failed, unless he or she proves that he or she is not responsible for the failure to meet this deadline. Leave of absence may interrupt this period. The examination board shall make the necessary determinations.

§ 15
Acquisition of the subject-related university entrance qualification

Students who have the Fachhochschulreife (entrance qualification for studies at universities of applied sciences) acquire the subject-specific entrance qualification for studies at universities of applied sciences in accordance with the ordinance on the acquisition of the subject-specific entrance qualification for studies at universities during studies in integrated courses of study of 23 September 1981 (GV. NW. p. 596), last amended by the ordinance of 16 May 1990 (GV. NW. p. 350), if they have proved the successful completion of bridging courses in three subjects after the basic studies in the integrated course of studies in Computer Science and have passed the degree interim examination. A corresponding note must be included in the certificate of the passed degree interim examination.

§ 16
Certificate

  1. A certificate shall be issued without delay, if possible within four weeks of the completion of the last examination, stating the individual subject grades and the overall grade as well as whether the student is qualified to continue his or her studies by taking either degree examination I or degree examination II (in each case stating the standard period of study). The certificate shall be signed by the chairman of the examination board. The date of the certificate shall be the date on which the last examination was completed. In the cases of § 16, the certificate shall not be handed over until the note on the acquisition of the subject-related higher education entrance qualification has been entered.
  2. If the degree interim examination has not been passed or is deemed not to have been passed, the chairman of the examination board shall notify the candidate thereof in writing, stating also whether and, if so, to what extent and within what time limit the degree interim examination may be repeated.
  3. The notification of the failure to pass the degree interim examination or of the loss of the right to take the examination must be accompanied by instructions on legal remedies.
  4. If the candidate has failed the degree interim examination, a written certificate shall be issued on request, on presentation of the relevant evidence and the certificate of deregistration, stating the examination results and marks achieved and the examination results still to be achieved in order to pass the degree interim examination, and indicating that the degree interim examination has not been passed. The same applies in the event of loss of the right to take the examination.
III. Bachelor examination

§ 17
Admission to the Bachelor examination

  1. Only those who fulfil the requirements of § 9 paragraph 1 can be admitted to the subject examinations of the second study section of the Bachelor examination.
  2. In addition to the requirements mentioned in paragraph 1, admission to the Bachelor's examination generally requires the successful completion of the degree interim examination. However, in order to provide more flexibility, subject examinations in the main subject on the contents of courses of the second study section can be taken on application to the extent of 4 points if the sum of the weights of the passed subject examinations of the first study section has reached 18 points. At the request of the lecturers, the examination board may additionally make the passing of subject examinations on the content of courses with a weight of up to 2 points a condition for admission to the course-related subject examinations. Subject examinations in the minor subject on contents of the second study section can be taken if the corresponding examinations of the first study section have been passed. You can only begin work on your thesis after you have successfully completed the degree interim examination.
  3. Admission to the final subject examination of the second stage of the main subject can only be granted to those who can prove that they have completed an industrial internship of eight weeks' duration with a relevant activity or have successfully completed a semester abroad. Further details are regulated by the study regulations. The university supports the search for an internship or study place abroad within the scope of its possibilities. There is no entitlement to assignment. Industrial internship and semester abroad can only be started when the sum of the weights of the passed subject examinations of the first study section has reached 18 points.
  4. The application for admission to the Bachelor examination must be submitted in writing to the examination board. The application must be enclosed:
    1. Proof that the conditions for approval referred to in paragraph 1 have been met
    2. The certificate of the degree interim examination or, alternatively, proof of recognition pursuant to section 7 paragraph 3 or an application pursuant to paragraph 2
    3. If applicable, the names of the examiners pursuant to § 6 (3)
    4. If applicable, a statement that the admission of listeners is opposed
    5. A declaration as to whether the candidate has already failed a degree interim examination, a bachelor's examination or a degree examination in Computer Science, Engineering Information Technology, Business Information Technology or another course of study, or whether he or she has definitively failed the examination by missing a retake deadline
  5. In the application for admission to the Bachelor examination, the chosen minor subject must be stated, unless it is the minor subject of the degree interim examination. In this case, the subject examinations of the first study section must also be taken in the minor subject.
  6. Candidates must register their participation in a written examination in a minor subject with the examination board at least two weeks before the examination date.
  7. Otherwise, § 9 paragraphs 2 to 8 shall apply accordingly.

§ 19
Student research project

&nbs

  1. 1The student research project should show that the candidate has the ability to work on a Computer Science problem within a certain period of time on the basis of scientific methods. The volume should correspond to a text of between 20 and 80 A4 pages and a workload of 6 weeks full-time work. The work is written during the course of the study and must be submitted 3 months after the issue.
  2. The student research project can be assigned by any or all examiners according to § 6 paragraph 1. At the candidate's request, the examination board may also admit examiners to supervise the course work who represent the minor subject chosen by the candidate. The candidate shall be given the opportunity to make suggestions for the topic of the course work.
  3. On request, the chairman of the examination board will ensure that a candidate receives a topic for a term paper in good time.
  4. The course work may also be admitted in the form of a group work if the individual candidate's contribution, which is to be assessed as an examination paper, is clearly distinguishable and assessable on the basis of sections, page numbers or other objective criteria that allow a clear distinction to be made and fulfils the requirements of paragraph 1.
  5. The student research project can only be awarded after successful completion of the degree interim examination. The topic of the student research project will be assigned by the chairperson or the chairman of the examination board. The time of the issue has to be recorded.
  6. The topic and the task of the student research project must be such that the deadline for completion can be met. The topic can only be returned once and only within the first month of issue. In individual cases, the examination board may extend the processing time by a maximum of two weeks upon reasoned request.
  7. When handing in the student research project, the candidate must confirm in writing that he or she has written the student research project - in the case of group work the correspondingly marked part of the work - independently and has not used any sources other than those indicated as aids and has not marked quotations.

§ 20
Acceptance and evaluation of the student research project

  1. The student research project must be submitted to the board of examiners in due time; the date of submission must be recorded. If the student research project is not submitted in due time, it shall be deemed to be graded as "insufficient" (5.0) in accordance with § 8 paragraph 1 sentence 2.
  2. The student research project is to be evaluated by the supervisor and an assessor according to § 6. The student's presentation shall be included in the evaluation. If the supervisor does not represent the subject Computer Science, or if the candidate submits a justified objection to the assessment to the examination board within two weeks after notification, an examiner according to § 6 paragraph 1, who teaches Computer Science, shall additionally assess the student research project. In the event of a disagreement, the arithmetic mean of the assessments will be given as the grade if the difference is less than 1.0. Otherwise, the examination board decides on the final grade after hearing the examiners.
  3. The students shall be informed of the evaluation of the thesis after four weeks at the latest.

§ 21
Evaluation of the examination performances, formation of grades and passing the Bachelor examination

  1. For the evaluation of the individual examination performances in the Bachelor examination and the formation of the subject grades, § 13 applies accordingly.
  2. The Bachelor examination is passed if all examination performances according to § 18 were graded at least with the grade "sufficient" (4.0).
  3. The overall grade is calculated as the weighted average of the subject grades. The student research project receives a weight of three points. All achievements of the first study section are weighted once, those of the second section twice. In all other respects, § 13, paragraphs 3 and 4 shall apply accordingly.
  4. The overall grade "passed with distinction" is awarded if the grade of the thesis is 1.0, the pre-diploma grade "very good", the overall grade determined according to § 13, section 4 is at least 1.3 and none of the subject grades of the second study section is worse than 2.0.

§ 22
"Free Shot" exam attempt

  1. Subject examinations of the second stage of study with a total weight of 2 points in the major subject and one point in the minor subject, which are taken before the 7th semester, can be evaluated as a free attempt upon application, i.e. they are considered as not taken if not passed. A second free attempt in the same subject examination is excluded. Sentence 1 does not apply if the examination has been declared failed due to conduct in breach of regulations, in particular an attempt at deception.
  2. When calculating the date mentioned in paragraph 1 sentence 1, semesters of study shall not be taken into account and shall not be deemed to be an interruption during which the candidate was demonstrably prevented from studying due to prolonged serious illness or for any other compelling reason. An impediment is to be assumed in particular if at least four weeks of the maternity protection period fall within the lecture period. In the event of illness, the candidate must immediately arrange for an examination by a medical officer and, together with the notification of illness, submit the medical certificate containing the medical findings which indicate the inability to study.
  3. Studying abroad for two or three semesters is also disregarded if the candidate has demonstrably been enrolled at a foreign university for the subject in which he or she wishes to take advantage of the free attempt regulations and has attended a reasonable number of courses, usually at least eight semester hours per week, and has acquired at least one certificate of achievement per semester.
  4. Furthermore, a reasonable number of semesters, but no more than up to two semesters, are not taken into account if the candidate was active during this time as an elected member of statutory committees or statutory bodies of the university.
  5. Anyone who has passed a subject examination if the requirements in accordance with paragraphs 1 to 4 are met may repeat the subject examination once in order to improve the subject grade. The application for admission shall be submitted on the next examination date. The repetition of an oral examination must be completed after six months.
  6. If a candidate achieves a better subject grade in the repeat examination, the better subject grade is shown on the certificate and is used as the basis for calculating the overall grade of the degree examination.

§ 23
Re-taking the Bachelor examination

  1. § Section 14(1) to (3) shall apply mutatis mutandis (comparison).
  2. The student research project can be repeated once if the grade (5.0) is not sufficient. A second repetition is excluded. However, the topic of the course work may only be returned within the time limit specified in § 19, section 6, sentence 2 if the candidate had not made use of this possibility when writing his/her first course work.
  3. Candidates can suggest another examiner for the repetition of the student research project.

§ 24
