Oral supplementary examination (mEP)

According to § 32 of the General Examination Regulations (APB), an oral supplementary examination (mEP) can be taken on application once per degree programme for a failed second written repeat examination. If no application is received within the application deadline, the subject examination is permanently considered not passed.

The application for a mEP is permitted if:

  • no mEP has yet been taken or applied for within an examination regulation,
  • the examination for which the mEP is requested was a failed, written, supervised examination,
  • the application has been submitted to the relevant Office for Student Affairs within 4 weeks of the publication of the examination result in TUCaN.

The application for a mEP is not permitted if:

  • the evaluation “insufficient” was made through an unexcused absence, submission of a blank sheet or through a cheating attempt.
  • the deadline of one month after the announcement of the examination result is not met.
