Missing assessment dates, withdrawal and illness

When you submit an assessment registration via QIS, you assume an obligation to participate in the assessment(s) in question. If you are prevented from fulfilling your assessment obligation, you must communicate this to Student Services without delay.

If you have not communicated your withdrawal or your missing of the assessment date immediately, i.e. "without undue delay", or if your reasons are not recognised, the assessment in question shall be deemed "insufficient"!

The relevant General Examination Regulations form the legal basis for these regulations.

In the event of illness
If, due to illness, you are unable to participate in an assessment or are unable to comply with a delivery deadline, you must submit a medical certificate in the original to Student Services immediately after establishing the illness. The certificate must make clear your inability to sit the assessment; therefore, please have your doctor complete the form provided (a normal "certificate of disability" is not sufficient).
