Illness (please note does not mean that without a medical certificate can simply be withdrawn)

Illness (please note does not mean that without a medical certificate can simply be withdrawn)

Anyone who has registered for an examination must, as a matter of principle, take part in it.

– failure to appear without good reason, – late submission of work without good reason, – withdrawal before or after the start of the examination without good reason, (under "Withdrawal" Is not to be understood that one is allowed to stay away from the exam without giving any reason, by just telling that one is withdrawing. A "deregistration after the deadline for registration is not easily possible.)

Counts as an examination attempt and will be counted as failed ("not sufficient, 5.0") (§ 20 para. 1 BAPO, § 19 Abs. 1 POLBA, § 24 para. 1 MagPO).


– If you are unable to take the exam due to illness or are unable to meet the paper submission deadline, you must provide a doctor's note to the exam administrator. The study offices are the point of contact for all examinations that do not relate to the final module. For the final module (B.A./M.A.-Work etc.) the examination office is responsible.
According to the letter of the Ministry of Education, Science, Youth and Culture (MBWJK) of 22.12.In 2009, the examination offices are required to proceed as follows: In the case of a first-time illness, a simple medical certificate without further details is sufficient, which only certifies the inability to take the examination from a medical point of view. From the second notice of sickness on, you have the following option: Either you bring an official medical certificate or you present a qualified certificate of the treating physician. Qualified medical certificates must u.A. Include information on the impairment caused by the illness (description of symptoms) as well as explanations of how this affects the examinee's ability to perform. See z.B. OVG Lüneburg, judgment of 15.09.1998 – 10 L 3178/96, KMK-HSchrR/NF 21 C.1 No. 30; VG Minden, GB of 25.01.2000 – 2 K 3874/99, NWVGl. 2000, 232 as well as VG Saarlouis, judgment of 21.05.2001 – 1 K 7/99 – (n.V.). A certificate of incapacity for work is not sufficient.
You can give your doctor a Attest form of the examination office (download right column). – The resignation of the test must immediately, i.D.R. Be notified to the study office (module exams) or the examination office (final module only) before the start of the exam or the end of the deadline for submitting your work. – A medical certificate is immediately, i.D.R. Within 3 days to be submitted. Pre-submission by fax is considered to be in compliance with the deadline. – Hospital medical certificates and certificates from psychological psychotherapists are equivalent to a medical certificate from a public health officer and are generally accepted.
