All In-Person Exams Canceled through February 21

February 12th, 2021 | by

Due to the expected adjustments to the Corona Protection Ordinance, RWTH decided in a special meeting of all examination board chairpersons on Thursday, February 11, to cancel all in-person exams at RWTH through the end of next week (i.e., until February 21). This applies to in-person written and oral exams as well as exams scheduled to be held in ZuseLab.

Remote exams, such as take-home exams or online exams, can, however, take place. We are once again asking our instructors to consider whether remote testing might be an option for their exams.

Early next week – once we have the specifics on how NRW plans to implement Chancellor Merkel’s and the state premiers’ latest decision   – we will let you know how we will proceed with the exams scheduled for the last week of February and the first week of March.

The in-person written exams that are canceled now will be rescheduled in consultation with the Faculties and departments’ exam planners at the beginning of the next lecture period.

The exceptions allowed under the Corona Protection Ordinance for medicine and previously approved lab courses are not affected by the cancellation.
