Special Note: NEW EXAM SCHEDULE FOR LECTURES

Exam Schedule for Lectures
Starting in Autumn 2019, the examination schedule for lectures (including Grammar) will take place within the 14-week teaching semester. The obligatory exam for lectures will take place in the twelfth semester week and mainly taking place at the usual course meeting time and in the usual course venue. Students failing an exam are allowed one chance to resit it. These resit exams will take place in the thirteenth semester week (again, usual course time and venue). Students who, for valid medical or other official reasons, were unable to take the main exam or resit exam, will have another chance in the fourteenth semester week to take the exam. The exceptions to this fixed exam schedule are the two MA Foundation lectures.
