Changes to the test plan are only possible in consultation with the module coordinator and following advice from the Examination Board. Students are informed immediately of the relevant change.


The student has the right to take note of recent model test questions or trial examinations or representative previous tests and the solutions model and the standard for assessment.


The test result of both a test and a module will be made known to the student within 10 working days after the examination. Should an examiner not be able to meet the deadline due to special circumstances, he or she will report this with reasons to the Examination Board.
