Please also read the University's regular coronavirus updates.
It is recommended that you wear a protective face mask when entering or leaving the university buildings. The wearing of FFP2 or medical/surgical masks is also recommended during the exams.
It is recommended that a minimum distance of 1.5 m to others be observed throughout the grounds of the University.
Rule-of-thumb for ventilation: Open the windows for 5 minutes every 45 minutes, unless sufficient ventilation is ensured by technical means. Meeting rooms: every 20 minutes, open the windows for 3 minutes in winter, 5 minutes in spring/autumn or 10 minutes in summer.
- You must not enter the University buildings if you are ill on the day of the exam and exhibit symptoms of a covid-19 infection or unspecific symptoms of illness, or if you have been placed under quarantine. In those cases you are banned from entering the premises.
- If you are not entitled to sit the exam or otherwise have official business with the exam.
Invigilators must monitor compliance with the entry ban. If you have any further questions, please contact the Examinations Office.
Only the following items are permitted on your desk: writing utensils (no pencil cases), proof of identity (this should be placed at the outer edge of the desk), any other officially permitted exam aids, spare face masks, paper handkerchiefs, snacks and drinks.
You may place your personal belongings in a closed, non-transparent bag next to your desk. During the exam, you must not pick up or open your bag. If you urgently need something from your bag, you must ask the invigilating staff for permission first. If you are caught handling your bag without permission, you will be failed for cheating. This also applies if you have a mobile phone in your bag that is switched on, even if the bag is closed.
All examination rooms are cleaned on daily basis. Disinfectants are available.
Your identity will be checked when you are seated at your desk. As we have to ensure the greatest possible distance when conducting this check, we ask that you place your identity document close to the edge of your desk.
These examinations are coordinated centrally by the Examinations Office and conducted on the assigned premises (exam venue). In order to simplify the process for oral state examinations, the Examinations Office forwards a list of examination slots, examiners and participating students to the room allocation staff. However, you must submit a room application for these examinations. The Examinations Office will carry out the announcements.
The written in-person examinations have been divided into non-centrally organised examinations (organised by the examiners themselves) and central examinations (which are organised by the Examinations Office).
Examiners can find information on non-centrally organised examinations on the Information for Examiners page. Students should use Stud.IP or visit the relevant examiner's website to inform themselves about non-centrally organised examinations.
The Examinations Office is responsible for organising central examinations. Students can find information on central examinations on the Examinations Office's semester-related information webpage, which provides information on exam dates and seating plans. Information on infection protection can be found under Information for students.
The concept for central examinations organised by the Examinations Office and non-centrally organised examinations organised by the Chairs/teaching institutions at the University of Passau is based on the Bavarian disease control ordinance (BayIfSMV) [German content].
