    Examinational matters

    For examination you have to satisfy the above mentioned mandatory prerequisites, i.e.: Bachelor's degree and - in case you are enrolled in the Master's degree program from 2009 - exam registration in the examination office (or via PAUL if possible).

    There are two possible examination procedures depending on your Master's degree program. In either case, as part of your examination, you will have to

    • write a seminar report
    • give a presentation talk
    • meet the deadlines (see above)

    and will receive a grade.

    You are given 6 penalty points (more information on that is provided in the guidelines) which we reduce if you, for example, miss a deadline. These do not dircetly influence your seminar grade. But if they drop to zero, you fail the seminar examination (you'll get no confirmation of successful participation, in German: keinen Seminarschein).

    Differences between Master's programs

    In case of students who are enrolled in the Master's degree program from 2004, this will be your final grade for the seminar.

    In case of students who are enrolled in the Master's degree program from 2009, this grade is called "seminar pre-grade" and you will have to register this seminar and another course for an oral module examination. Similar to module examinations without seminars, an overall grade is determined for the seminar and another course. The seminar pre-grade, in this case, builds one third of the overall module grade.

    The module exam registration can be done after seminar participation. For the module exam registration you will receive a confirmation of your seminar participation (in German: Seminarschein) including your seminar pre-grade. You will have to add this confirmation to your module exam registration and to hand in both documents in the examination office.

    In the oral module exam you will be asked questions concerning your seminar topic as well as the topic that you had to cope with in your peer review.
