Questions about the postponement of the examination period - as of 25.02.21 (12:22 h)

The questions and answers concerning the postponement of the examination period have been checked and released by the Prorectorate for Studies and Teaching. 

As soon as we have more answers to your questions about postponing the exam period, we will post them here. 

Due to corona-related disadvantages that arose in the summer semester 2020 and winter semester 2020/21, the state of Baden-Württemberg has decided to grant all students enrolled in the summer semester 2020 and winter semester 2020/21 one additional semester each. For this purpose, the standard duration of study was increased by two semesters for the students. Example: The standard duration of a 7-semester course of study is increased to 9 semesters. This regulation does not currently apply to students who begin their studies in the summer semester of 2021 or later.

Depending on whether you were in the Grundstudium or Hauptstudium in the SoSe or WS, the two semesters are then added there accordingly.

The university management intensively discussed the examination phase in December. Two things were still unclear at that time: On the one hand, the legal framework, since the CoronaVO was deliberately limited until January 10 in view of the consultation of the Minister Presidents with the Chancellor on January 5. On the other hand, there was still hope that the tightening of the lockdown and the common sense of the people would lead to a significant improvement of the situation.

Since the cancellation of the face-to-face examinations represents a considerable burden for the students, but also for the staff involved in the examination and lecture planning, the university management has kept the possibility of conducting the examinations in face-to-face open as long as possible. With the renewed increase in incidence since the beginning of January, it was now clear that no infection event could be reached until 21 January that would responsibly allow examinations to be conducted in attendance.

The university understands by "online examination" that writing a written exam under video surveillance.

It is already possible to take oral online examinations, online presentations or homework.

Other colleges or universities may use the term "online exams" differently.

Short answer: Because the legal framework does not permit a compulsory online examination.

Detailed: The colleges that conducted online exams last year did so on a voluntary basis.

§ Section 32a of the Landeshochschulgesetz (LHG) was introduced by the state parliament in Baden-Württemberg on 1 January 2021 and allows universities to conduct online examinations. However, this is subject to strict requirements. In particular, participation in an online examination in text form under viedeo supervision, which is not conducted on university premises or in test centres, must be voluntary. The law then goes on to say, "The voluntary nature of participation may be ensured in particular by offering a scheduled on-site examination as an alternative, to the extent that such an alternative is legally permissible. If the on-site infection situation permits, the institution of higher education may offer a same-time on-site examination for a limited number of examinees who do not wish to take an online examination outside the institution of higher education or a testing center, even under the current conditions with strict infection control measures. To the extent that the infection situation does not permit it, such an offer need not be made. In any case, it can be assumed that most students, out of their own interest in making scheduled progress in their studies, will also take advantage of examination offers that are voluntary.

At the time of the examination registration, the regulations of § 32a LHG were not even available in draft form. A legally secure subsequent clarification of who can be voluntarily examined online is now not possible for the 47,000 registered examinations.

Other federal states may have issued earlier or different regulations. However, these are not valid for our university.

Among other things, these cases fall under the hardship cases mentioned in the mail of 13 January. Here you can agree on individual solutions with the examiner and apply for them at the examination board. If it is not reasonable for you (for the reasons mentioned above) to conduct the examinations in May in presence, other examination forms and times will be determined for you individually. For example, this could be a written paper or an oral examination via WebEx on a voluntary basis. The detailed regulations for this were specified by the university management on 15 January and made available to the examination committee chairpersons and deans.

The change of the examination form must be applied for by the teacher, approved by the examination board and then by the Prorector for Studies and Teaching. This would realistically take at least one week for the originally intended examination period. This would mean that the students would be informed at the beginning or after the beginning of the examination period that instead of the cancelled exam, another form of exam would be used. This is not reasonable for the students and therefore also legally questionable.

However, it is possible for the professors and lecturers to change the examination form for the examination phase in May.

If the infection situation in May is like it is today, the university will again not be able to conduct comprehensive face-to-face examinations. However, if a sufficient number of lecturers change the form of examination by then, so that only a fraction of the 47,000 examinations will have to be taken in person, it will be much easier to examine in smaller groups in the rooms available. In addition, it will be easier in May to ventilate regularly without it becoming unacceptably cold.

Unfortunately, printing on campus is not possible at the moment, because according to the Corona regulations of our university, the traffic light rule applies and in the red stage the campus should not be entered. Due to the increased and still high number of infections, we unfortunately do not see any possibility to obtain a change or exception. However, we have a link for you for free printing, which has already been well received and also posted on Yammer: https://www.charly.education/gratis-drucken. Currently the offer is valid for 170 pages, more details on the homepage. As soon as printing on campus will be possible again, we will inform you about it on our page and social media.

Yes, examinations are among the special cases for which an overnight stay in a hotel or youth hostel, for example, is permitted. (

"When am I still allowed to stay in a hotel and other lodging establishments?

Any commercial overnight accommodation such as hotels, inns, holiday apartments, campsites or youth hostels may not offer tourist overnight stays. This does not apply to business and official travel or when other reasons, such as the care of a dependent relative, visiting rights with children, the participation of trainees and students in examinations away from home, or a visit to a doctor or hospital, require an overnight stay in these establishments."

The May exams are written according to Plan-B, i.e. online. There are several possibilities of implementation.

  1. Iliad Exams
  2. EvaExam
  3. classical presence examination as home examination

Which of the possible examination systems is implemented depends on the respective lecturer. Please contact the respective university lecturer for more specific information on your subject.

Yes, cancellations are possible up to 4 days before the individual exam. 

Yes, until 8.3.2021 the registration for the May exams free of charge possible, provided that the exam performance has not yet begun. This applies to new registrations as well as to re-registrations of previously cancelled exams.

Yes, until 8.3.2021 the registration for the May exams free of charge possible, provided that the exam performance has not yet begun. This applies to new registrations as well as to re-registrations of previously cancelled exams.

No, since as things stand there are fewer days available in May and exam forms may have changed by then, the plan cannot be adopted. 

No, the registration period for SoSe21 remains as planned (16 April to 3 May).

Yes, the Corona bylaws continue to apply to the May exams as they count towards WiSe20/21. 

An extension of the examination period in SoSe21 will probably not be possible, a postponement by one week would be more conceivable, but both are subject to the decision of the senate. 

Solutions or an alternative plan are being worked on. 

It is estimated that the new examination schedule will be published in early April. 

This is lecturer- or event-specific and cannot be said for all events. Basically, the quality of the events must be maintained. 

No, a working group has been set up to consider concepts and work out solutions. 

Yes, the regulations that examinations must be completed beforehand have been suspended for SoSe21. There is no need to apply for a hardship case. Such cases of hardship occur if, for example, Maths 1 has to be completed before Maths 2 (cf. hardship regulation point 4).

The exams in May count as exams for WiSe20/21, therefore they can be repeated in SoSe21. The university plans to automatically transfer the failed attempts for the exams of SoSe21. If students do not want to attempt an exam in SoSe21, they can deregister from the exams.

Yes, but this has to be requested by the examiners. As soon as this change is approved, individual examination performances can also be taken before 3 May if the examinee agrees. However, the form of examination can only be chosen uniformly for the course. It is therefore not possible to set an alternative form of examination for some students and a written examination in May for others.

Applications for changes to the form of examination are made by agreement between students and lecturers and are submitted to the individual examination board for approval. This is thus resolved on a faculty-specific basis. 

No, face-to-face examinations cannot take place in the examination period January/February and the examination form cannot be changed for this period. 

Yes, the Senate has decided on a lecture-free preparation period of one week before the exams in May.

In principle, yes, but there may be changes, as this depends on the respective lecturers. Please discuss this with the respective lecturers. 

A solution for intermediate performance does not yet exist but is being worked on.  
 

No, the face-to-face exams have been postponed. The examination period still exists for individual examinations which were already switched to alternatives before the examination period was postponed.

No, the face-to-face exams were generally cancelled. 

For this, please contact the TUM.

Hardship regulations due to the cancellation of the attendance examinations in the examination period WS 2020/21  

Cases of hardship exist if the postponement of the examination leads to unreasonable disadvantages on the part of the examinee. Hardship cases can be remedied by changing the form of the examination. 

1.       The degree is awarded in WiSe 20/21 not possible. 

Hardship requirements: Only if examination achievements are still missing for graduation, for which the student has actually registered in the current winter semester 20/21, i.e. the will to graduate can be clearly and demonstrably seen. The BT or MT has already been registered or this will be done by 28 February at the latest. 

2.       practical semester 

Students who will complete the practical semester in the coming semester 2021 can continue to do so as planned. Here, a generous suspension of the previously required prerequisites according to the SPO for the practical semester is made possible. The practical study semester can be started in the coming semester even if the prerequisites are not met. An application on the part of the student is not required. 

If students are scheduled to be abroad in May for the internship, they cannot be expected to take a presence examination in Heilbronn in May. Therefore, hardship cases are also to be assumed for these students and the examination form can be changed. 

3.       Semester abroad Outgoings/Incomings 

If students (outgoings) are unable to start their studies abroad due to missing examinations, this constitutes a reason for hardship. If students who are studying with us as incoming students are missing credits due to the cancellation of the attendance examinations, this constitutes a reason for hardship. If students are scheduled to study or do an internship abroad in May, they cannot be expected to take an attendance exam in May. Therefore, hardship cases are also to be assumed for these students and the examination form can be changed. 

The international representatives approach the incoming and outgoing students and assist them with the application process. 

4. examination requirements 

In the case of examinations for which certain examinations must be completed before they can be taken, this rule is lifted for the 2021 semester. Such cases of hardship occur when, for example, Math 1 must be completed before Math 2. As a result of the postponement of the attendance examinations and the registration period before the new examination period, this is not feasible for the students. Students can therefore register for the corresponding examinations. An application on the part of the student does not have to be made here. 

Students who would like to register for examinations of the main course of study in the summer semester 2021 can also do so if corresponding limitations of the SPO ("no more than x open examinations of the basic course of study") are opposed. 

Application process for changes in the form of examination for hardship cases: 

1. application by students: Students submit an application for hardship, including the relevant supporting documents, to the relevant examination board. The grade transcript, examination registrations WiSe20/21 serve as proof documents for an application regulated under point 1. The application must also contain the information whether the examiners approve of the change of the examination form of the corresponding examinations. 

2. application by examiner: the application for change must be made by the examiner. In the case of a module examination, the change of the examination form is only possible with the agreement of all examiners. 

Accordingly, students can submit a hardship application to the responsible examination board after consulting the responsible examiner until January 25, 2021. The application must be made in writing by e-mail and must be justified. The reasons for hardship must be made credible by attaching the supporting documents. 

If the student's request is granted and there is a corresponding request for a change in the form of examination by the examiner(s), other forms of examination will be determined for the students individually. The time and framework conditions are organised by the examiners. Changed forms of examination can be a written paper or an oral examination via WebEx. 

If the grade submission deadline of February 22 cannot be met, grades must be received no later than one week after the exam date for hardship exams. 

Examination period from 03 to 21 May (subject to resolution by the Senate) 

The examinations take place in the examination period from 03-21 May 2021 according to the forms regulated in the respective SPO. All exam registrations of the winter semester 20/21 will be transferred automatically. A possible deregistration from an exam has to be done personally, as before. 

In view of the restrictions that will certainly continue to exist in May, we ask the examiners to think about changing the form of examination in May and to apply for this if necessary. As soon as this has been approved, you can take individual examination performances even before 3 May if the examinee agrees. However, the form of examination can only be selected uniformly for the course. It is therefore not possible to set an alternative form of examination for some students and a written examination in May for others. 

No, the hardship regulation is an offer by the university. No one is obliged to apply for a hardship case.

Requests for hardship are submitted informally by e-mail to the individual examination board. 

Cases of hardship exist if the postponement of the examination leads to unreasonable disadvantages on the part of the examinee. Hardship cases can be remedied by changing the form of the examination. Further conditions can be found under the first item in this tab.

Cases of hardship exist if the postponement of the examination leads to unreasonable disadvantages on the part of the examinee. Hardship cases can be remedied by changing the form of the examination. If students are scheduled to be abroad in May for the internship, they cannot be expected to take a presence examination in Heilbronn in May. Therefore, hardship cases are also to be assumed for these students and the examination form can be changed. If interns are in Germany, a hardship application must also be submitted, which will be processed individually by the examination board. 

Yes, you can apply for hardship only for a part of the exams. When submitting the application, it must be noted to which exams the application refers.

No, it is no longer possible to change the form of the examination. However, for the examinations in May, a change of the examination form can be approved by the examination board.

No, the lecturer is generally not obliged to offer an alternative form of examination. If there is a case of hardship, the examiner must create an alternative within the framework of the hardship regulation. For this purpose, it is necessary for the students to contact the examiner or the examination board. 

No, the decision does not lie with the lecturer, but with the examination board. A change of the examination form is not possible for January/February. However, for the May examinations a change of the examination form can be approved by the examination board. 

Yes, exceptions can be made. See the hardship regulations.  
If you do not write your thesis in the Heilbronn area, the hardship regulation can definitely be applied and an alternative exam can be set. For this purpose, please contact your examination board. 

No, because an intermediate performance cannot represent the entire grade. For example, a homework assignment or presentation already given cannot be upgraded as an exam afterwards.

Yes, the lecturer can submit an application to the examination board to change the form of the examination for the May examination period, but ultimately the decision to change the form does not lie with the lecturer, but with the examination board, so that you could get a term paper approved. Please note that the change of the examination form applies to all students of the course.

There are several reasons for this: 

  1. A change in the form of the examination would be very short notice 1 week before the start of the examination periods and is not considered reasonable as the preparation for different forms of examinations is different. A preparation for an open-book exam (Kofferklausur) is different from an oral exam. 
  2. The university must provide legal security for the examinations and this would not be the case. 

If, for whatever reason, you are unable to come to college in May, you will fall under the hardship provisions.

If you have come to the university as an incoming student, you will fall under the hardship regulations and the form of examination can be changed on application. 

Yes, in principle you can complete your semester abroad even though you have not yet passed your exams. You should get in touch with your study abroad representative and explain the situation to him/her. Should you not be able to participate in the examination in May, you can apply for hardship. The foreign representative of the HHN will support you in this case. 

If examinations are still missing for graduation, for which the student has actually registered in the current WiSe 20/21, i.e. the will to graduate is clearly and demonstrably evident and the BT or MT has already been registered or this is done by 28 February at the latest, then a hardship application can be submitted so that there are no open examinations. 

If examinations are still missing for graduation for which the student has actually registered in the current winter semester 20/21, i.e. the will to graduate is clearly and demonstrably evident and the BT or MT has already been registered or this is done by 28 February at the latest, then a hardship application can be submitted so that there are no open examinations. However, all required ECTS must be completed in any case.

If the BT is already registered or this is done by 28 February at the latest, then a hardship application can be made. 

If examination achievements are still missing for graduation, for which the student has actually registered in the current WiSe20/21, i.e. the will to graduate is clearly and demonstrably evident and the BT is already registered or this is done by 28 February at the latest, then a hardship application can be submitted so that there are no open examinations. By Corona statute, all deadlines are suspended.

If examinations are still missing for graduation, for which the student has actually registered in the current winter semester 20/21, i.e. the will to graduate is clearly and demonstrably evident and the BT is already registered or this is done by 28 February at the latest, then a hardship application can be made so that there are no open examinations. Thus, graduation in March is possible. 

If examinations are still missing for graduation, for which the student has actually registered in the current winter semester 20/21, i.e. the will to graduate is clearly and demonstrably evident and the BT has already been registered or this is done by 28 February at the latest, then a hardship application can be submitted so that there are no open examinations. Thus, graduation in March is possible.  
In principle, the examination period in May also belongs to the WiSe20/21, so there is no additional semester. 

No, but if an exam is not passed, it cannot be repeated in SoSe21 if you are not enrolled for it. Thus, students have the personal responsibility here.

Deadlines are suspended due to the emergency operation of the university. Colloquia can be held via WebEx.

No, the exams that are written in May count for WiSe20/21 and if you successfully complete them, this would be your last semester that is counted. The last exam taken determines your final semester.

A note is currently being considered. 

The question is still being clarified. We will endeavour to provide an answer as soon as possible.

Yes.(See hardship provision paragraph 4.)

No, all deadlines, such as submission or processing deadlines of theses and ongoing procedures, if they are regulated in the SPOs, are suspended until further notice. 

Deadlines will begin to run again when normal operations resume at the university.

The processing period of the thesis is automatically extended by the period of emergency operation. Therefore, you have to coordinate the new deadline with the responsible examination board.

If you miss your deadline due to illness or withdraw, this will not result in any lapse of your entitlement to the examination (§ 6 Para. 3).

If a completion of your thesis is possible and the handover is desired, the submission of your thesis as a PDF via email is possible. The original is sent by post to the locations or by post (registered mail / advice of receipt). However, personal delivery is currently not required.

However, at the latest after expiry of the deadline, theses sent by e-mail should also be delivered in the original, as a digital archiving option does not yet exist and legal storage regulations must be observed.

Yes, since it is currently not possible to process the submitted theses and other documents, deadlines in this regard are also suspended. Deadlines and dates that arise in the context of currently possible courses (e.g. giving a presentation after an online seminar) should be generous and take sufficient account of the current situation.

Withdrawal is still possible up to 4 days before the individual examination. 

In the case of examinations for which certain examinations must be completed before they can be taken, this rule has been abolished for SoSe21. Such cases of hardship occur when, for example, Maths 1 has to be taken before Maths 2. Due to the postponement of the attendance examinations and the registration period before the new examination period, this is not feasible for the students. Students can therefore register for the corresponding examinations. An application on the part of the student does not have to be made here. (cf. hardship regulation paragraph 4.)

No, the state of Baden-Württemberg has decided to grant all students enrolled in the summer semester 2020 and winter semester 2020/21 one additional semester each due to corona-related disadvantages that occurred in the summer semester 2020 and winter semester 2020/21.

Yes, there is the possibility to apply for a hardship case. However, the prerequisite for this is that an unreasonable situation would arise. This would be the case, for example, if the company, in which you do your internship, does not release you in any form. For internships abroad, hardship applications can now be made. Hardship requests can also be made for domestic internships. If unreasonable or unreasonable constellations arise, it is best to first contact the responsible examination board.

Yes, students who will complete the practical semester in the coming semester21 can continue to do so as planned. Here, a generous suspension of the previously necessary requirements according to the SPO for the practical semester is made possible. 

Via the Corona statutes it will be possible to reduce the necessary number of working days for a credit. So far, however, this only applies to the examination period in May. For the rest of the semester, this may still have to be decided by the senate.

Requests for hardship can now be submitted for internships abroad. Hardship applications can also be submitted for domestic internships. Should unreasonable or unreasonable constellations arise, it is best to first contact the responsible examination board.

Requests for hardship can now be submitted for internships abroad. Hardship applications can also be submitted for domestic internships. Should unreasonable or unreasonable constellations arise, it is best to first contact the responsible examination board.

Yes, this is possible on an individual basis. In addition, a hardship case can also be applied for.

Yes, this one is being prepared.

No, that is not possible. But there is the possibility to apply for a hardship case. 

Yes, if necessary hardship applications can be made. Hardship applications can now be submitted for internships abroad. Hardship applications can also be submitted for domestic internships. Should unreasonable or unreasonable constellations arise, it is best to first contact the responsible examination board.

No, they won't. However, if you have not passed an exam, you cannot repeat it in SoSe21 if you have not paid the semester fee. Thus, students have the personal responsibility here. 

No, but if an exam is not passed, it cannot be repeated in SoSe21 if you are not enrolled for it. Thus, students have the personal responsibility here. 

Yes, you can find more information here:


The AStA or the university has no decision-making authority here. The HS can only decide on the amount of 25 €. This is needed, among other things, to cover personnel costs.
Important: The printing contingent of 40 € is not financed by the semester fees, but is a "gift" from the university/faculties or from other funding possibilities.

Unfortunately, there is no way to claim these costs. 

No, you don't have to. However, if you have not passed an exam, you cannot repeat it in SoSe21 if you have not paid the semester fee. Thus, students have the personal responsibility here.

On Wednesday, 27.05.2020 the question and answer session on the current corona situation took place with the university management and the deans. We asked your most important questions and received answers. Click here for the results:

Baden-Württemberg has a Emergency aid fund for students if they are in a financial emergency due to the Corona pandemic.
This refers to an interest-free loan from the state of up to 450 euros for the months of April and May - a total of up to 900 euros. Applicants must prove that they are in an emergency situation and that their earnings have been lost since April.

The loan must be applied for in writing. A corresponding application is available on the homepage of the Heidelberg Student Union ready for download. You can compile the following documents in advance, which must then be submitted with the application: 
- current certificate of study according to § 9 BAföG
- double-sided copy of the identity card or passport or copy of the residence certificate for foreign students
- a copy on both sides of the bank card (EC card) or other proof of bank details
- current bank statement
- monthly statement of income and expenditure
- Termination of previous employment contract

From 8 May 2020 students in Germany will receive the KfW Student Loan temporarily with an interest rate of 0 %.  
For all those who are already using the student loan, KfW has extended the deadline for submission of renewal certificates, course certificates and transcripts of records. 
A KfW Student Loan  is a promotional loan where you will receive 100 to 650 euros every month on your current account - regardless of your income and your parents. 

BAföG stands for "Federal Training Assistance Act". This refers to state financial support for studies. In principle, students at universities can apply for BAföG.
Whether you get BAföG and how much depends on various factors, among others:
- your housing situation
- the income of your parents
- a possible side job
- your fortune

Half of the monthly amount for students is available as an interest-free loan, which you have to pay back later, and half as a grant.
At BAföG student flyer you will find detailed information.
At the Studierendenwerk Heidelberg Heidelberg Student Union you can make the motion.
Normally, the parental income from the calendar year before last is taken into account when calculating BAföG.

If now, for example because of short-time work due to the COVID-19 pandemic, parents lose part of their income, then this can be taken into account for BAföG recipients! Students have to submit a so-called update application, on which parents have to provide information about their income and also sign it. The application form is available at All application forms  (Form 7) 

Yes, the time that is not taught at the university due to the pandemic is considered lecture-free time and BAföG will continue to be paid until further notice. But if there are online courses, they are compulsory.

If the standard period of study is exceeded because the examination is cancelled due to the pandemic, BAföG will in most cases continue to be paid.

  • Students who are not entitled to BAföG and who lose their own income from part-time jobs due to the current situation may be entitled to social benefits (unemployment benefit II, housing benefit). In this case, a leave of absence from studies is usually a prerequisite. If students are not on leave of absence, there is the possibility of taking out a loan to secure their livelihood according to § 27 paragraph 3 of the Second Book of the Social Security Code to apply for. In the current situation, the assumption of a special hardship case can be considered if a significant reduction in income has occurred due to the effects of the pandemic. The decision as to whether the prerequisites are met is made by the relevant job centre in each individual case.

Those who have an Erasmus+ grant have the possibility, under certain circumstances, to have their costs reimbursed as agreed in the Grant Agreement. For this purpose students should contact their home universities. On the website of the DAAD National Agency for Erasmus+ there is a lot of further information for all Erasmus+ students:  Promotion of the Erasmus programme in the Corona period 

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) has put measures in place for its scholarship holders abroad and in Germany that enable a flexible approach to the challenges caused by the COVID 19 pandemic. They can break off their stay abroad, interrupt it and return home, or continue their studies abroad online from Germany. In cases where the scholarship has expired but a return to the home country is not possible due to a lack of flight connections, the scholarship can be extended on a monthly basis.
