Exams & Grading System

Exam Dates

Lectures require a written exam at the end or shortly after the end of the semester. There are no separate exams for tutorials as these are only offered in conjunction with lectures. You can find an overview of the exam dates ("Klausurenmasterplan") for the upcoming semester on the website of the Examination Office (ISC).

Exam Registration

Students need to register for all exams offered by the Department of Economics and the Department of Business Administration. Registration is done via the LSF ("Register for exams" after login).

Information on the registration period ("Klausuren An- und Abmeldung") is provided by the Examination Office (ISC).

For registration procedures concerning exams offered by departments or faculties other than Economics or Business Administration, students should ask the lecturer or the responsible department coordinator whether an exam registration is necessary and if so, how to proceed.

Grades and ECTS-credits

All exams are graded on a scale from 1 to 5. In order to get a more accurate evaluation each grade can be raised and lowered by 0.3 whereby 0.7, 4.3, 4.7 and 5.3 are not assigned.

Students obtaining 4.0 or better on an exam receive ECTS-credits. The number of ECTS-credits depends on the workload of the course. Most courses award 6 ECTS-credits.
