In the Bachelor program Geosciences we normally offer all major oral and written module exams in the last week of the lecture period and the first week of the semester break.
Exams belonging to modules of the previous semester are offered again in the first two weeks of the lecture period. For block courses, lab- and and field exercises different dates apply.
Each module is completed with a module examination. It can consist of one or more results (graded and/or not graded). Details, in particular the number, type and scope of records and how they are weighted for the module grade, are determined in the module description.
Module Examination A module concludes with a single exam. If the exam is graded, the mark counts for 100% of the module grade. If it is not graded but concludes with pass or failed, this module is not included in the calculation of the final Bachelor grade. Combined Marks A module examination can consist of several exams, graded and not graded. Every exam within a module examination with combined marks must be passed. The calculation of the module grade is up to the module coordinator. Only the module grade is visible in Pabo. Partial Examinations A partial examination completes a single course within a module. The mark will count for the module grade in the amount of credits the course is quoted.
To attend an exam you have to sign up on Pabo in time. Logon and logoff periods to each exam are specified in Pabo.
In case of sickness address immediately to the examination office (s. contact) and hand in as soon as possible the request for sick note together with a doctors certificate.
Thus all minor and guest students can not be registered in Pabo, they need to address to the lecturer for taking part in an exam in time.
With the first application in PABo for an examination of a module starts a period with a total of 5 semesters in which the entire module has to be successfully completed. If the deadline has passed without having completed the module`s exams, the compulsory deregistration will follow. Cancellation of registration for an exam in case of illness as well as holiday semesters are not counted. Irrespectively you must register in PABo for any further exam-try you would like to take.
