Written Exams May Be Held From May 11

April 24th, 2020 | by

A general decree of the NRW Ministry of Labor, Health and Social Affairs dated April 23, 2020, now allows RWTH to hold written exams from May 11, 2020, as long as hygiene and physical distancing requirements are observed. We recommend to continue to refrain from taking face-to-face oral exams and instead use video conferencing to keep personal contact to a minimum in the current pandemic.

Lab courses are expected to begin on May 4. Holding in-person exam script viewing sessions, however, is subject to strict regulations. Examiners and students will be provided with recommendations on the implementation of written exams in due course. The exam dates that were canceled in the summer semester before May 11 will then be immediately rescheduled to the time after excursion week. Please check the RWTH website and this blog regularly for further information.

Courses offered digitally, such as seminars, lectures, and tutorials, may only be converted into in-person classes for compelling reasons and if the number of participants does not exceed 20. Currently, arrangements for this are being agreed with the Rectorate.
