Your questions answered

How do I sign up for exams?

As you may know, at the University of Konstanz you register for your examinations, not your classes (exception: seminars). You sign up for an exam via StudIS within the registration period. Within this period, you can also withdraw your registration. 

What happens if I fail on the first try?

There is a resit-examination for each exam. If you do not pass an exam on the fist try you have to re‐register for the resit examination during the next exam registration period.

What happens if I am ill on the date of the exam?

Please consult the page of the Examination Office. If you are absent without excuse, you will automatically fail the exam. 

How will I get a transcript of grades?

You can obtain a transcript of grades via StudIS. If you need a sealed transcript, please apply for it in a written form with your personal signature at the Examination Office .

What happens if I don’t take an examination without excuse?

Unexcused absence is assessed with the grade 5,0 (fail).
