Every exam includes an inspection. But what are your rights and obligations during the inspection? What do the lecturers and you have to consider?
We have summarized this briefly:
Basically, all students have the right to inspect their exams. Your examiners must give you the opportunity to view your exam again in order to be able to object to the evaluation, if necessary. Furthermore, you can only exercise your right to an oral supplementary examination if you have taken part in the examination (and in the best case have registered your supplementary examination directly there). The minimum duration for the inspection depends on the previous duration of the exam.
These times are listed in the Comprehensive Examination Regulations (ÜPO). This was updated in April 2020 and it was clarified that notes may be made and taken during the inspection. Another important change was that you as a student have the right to a copy of your examination documents. You can find this regulation in the Comprehensive Examination Regulations under §22 paragraph 3. There is no right to a digital inspection. However, you can hope for the goodwill of your chair and ask them to provide you with a digital copy. If you do not have the possibility to participate in the inspection, you can also send an authorized person to the inspection. You can find a form for the authorization and all further information about the inspection in the ‘Handout on the subject of exam review’ at https://www.rwth-aachen.de/global/show_document.asp?id=aaaaaaaaaafkrvt.
