Grade improvements in the bachelor's degree programs

In the bachelor ’s degree programs, students have the opportunity to retake one module exam with the grade of ‘ausreichend’ (4.0, sufficient) or better in order to improve their grade. The regulation for retaking an exam for the purpose of improving a grade is restricted to the following rules and requirements:

  • Assessed coursework, such as presentations, papers and class minutes, cannot be improved
  • Examinations and assessed coursework for seminars, practicals, team projects and the master’s thesis cannot be improved
  • The number of modules you are allowed to improve is limited
  • The first exam must take place, at the latest, in the semester defined by the curriculum
  • The retaken exam must take place at the next possible exam date, meaning in the following semester
  • You must register online for the retaken exam

 

The better of the two grades counts.
