Exam withdrawal due to illness

Withdrawal from exams due to illness

If you fall ill, you must inform Exam Administration before the start of the examination (Email: pruefungsverwaltung.wiwi@uni-konstanz.de).

In addition, a physician of your choice must confirm that you are unable to sit the exam. In this case, you have to use the template provided by the Central Examination Office.

Please ensure that you complete the form in full (especially the examination(s) concerned, date, your signature). Please make sure that the physician enters the correct time period for your likely incapacity to sit the exam and signs and stamps the form.

It is imperative that the medical certificate is issued on the day of the examination. In the case of prolonged illness, a medical certificate can also be accepted which has been issued before the day of the examination. Medical certificates issued later cannot be accepted.
You must hand in your medical certificate to Annette Herbst on the same day, put it (or have it put) in the blue letterbox next to Room F 259 or send it by regular mail to the Department of Economics (FAO Annette Herbst).

Important: You are not (except in the case of orientation tests) automatically registered for the next possible exam date.

Under what circumstances will my medical certificate be accepted? Here are some examples:

You don’t feel well on Saturday morning and don’t want to take the exam on that day. You inform Annette Herbst that you are de-registering from the exam prior to its start (email or answering machine).

Scenario A: You go to a doctor’s surgery or an emergency doctor, have the form for the medical certificate completed and put it in the post -> You are then de-registered from the exam.

Scenario B: You wait until Monday before you go to the doctor and then submit the medical certificate -> Medical certificates issued later are not accepted. You are not de-registered from the exam.

You don’t feel well on Thursday and don’t want to sit the exam on Saturday. You inform Annette Herbst that you are de-registering from the exam prior to its start (email or answering machine).

Scenario C: You go to the doctor on Thursday. The doctor decides that you are incapable of sitting the exam in the period from Thursday to Saturday. You hand in your medical certificate to the department punctually -> You are de-registered from the examination.

Scenario D: You go to the doctor on Thursday. The doctor states that you are incapable of sitting the exam on Saturday -> The medical certificate was not issued on the day of the exam. You are not de-registered from the exam.

Mid-term exams

The organisation and handling of mid-term exams is the responsibility of the departmental chairs. You must hand in your note of absence prior to sitting an exam and your medical certificate to the chair.
