The centrally organized exams of the summer term take place between the 9th of August and the 2nd of October. We as stuvus wish you all the best for the upcoming exams!

Please also note: As has been known for some time, the S-Bahn station “Universität” will be closed from 31 July to 13 September 2021 due to construction work on the S-Bahn main line between the Hauptbahnhof and Vaihingen. A replacement service will be provided. You can find more information on the VVS website. Please allow extra time on your way to your exam.

We would also like to take the opportunity to list the most important information about the upcoming exams:

  • Withdrawal from the exams is possible up to 1 day before the exam without giving reasons
  • If someone belongs to a risk group and has concerns about writing in the large examination room with all other candidates, he or she can submit a request to the examination board chairperson with a medical certificate for a separate examination room. Please submit the application early, as it still has to be approved and the examiners must organize the rooms. Frau Eicken, the representative for students with disabilities or chronic illnesses, can provide information on this (
  • Problems regarding the deadline for orientation tests can be clarified with the examination board
  • Oral exams are possible online in exceptional cases

Your cooperation is always required for all measures taken, so please all help to prevent the spread and pay attention to the following information:

  • Keep your distance
  • Please refrain from physical exchange with friends and acquaintances before and after the exams
  • Wear a mask on the campus (where the minimum required distance of 1,5 metres can not be upheld) and when entering and leaving the examination rooms and buildings (medical mask or better), once you have taken your seat, you can take of your mask
  • In the smaller examination rooms, there is regular ventilation (every 20 minutes), so wear appropriate clothing here if necessary.
  • Stick to the marked paths
  • Stick to the order of filling the seats
  • Arrive ahead of time
