Compensation for disadvantages  of Risk groups

If examinations are held in person, it is possible in justified exceptional cases to conduct a digital remote examination instead. Belonging to a risk group can justify such a case of hardship. In this case, an application must be submitted to the responsible examiner, who will also make the decision. This is not a compensation for disadvantages, for which the respective examination board is responsible. Those who need help with the application or have other current health difficulties in their studies (e.g. difficulties with the digital solution) can contact VORSCHUB
