Examination deadlines

The examination regulations stipulate precisely at which point in your studies the GOP or final examination has to be passed. If a student misses this deadline for reasons for which they are responsible, the examination counts as failed for the first time. The student then has to resit the examination within the specified period. If they fail to do so, the examination counts as ultimately failed. Once you have ultimately failed an examination, you will not be able to enrol for the same degree programme or subject again at any German university. These stipulations encourage students to use their time at university carefully since the deadlines limit the duration of a degree programme.
