When do the course exams take place?

The exact forms, contents and dates of the assessment procedure will be announced by the teachers at the beginning of each course. Dates of the collective exams at the end of the semester can be found in the PDF on the right.

How do I register for the final exam in my course?

Registration for the course final exam takes place automatically after the course deregistration deadline.

Regular RUB students are registered via eCampus. Students admitted to the courses from other German universities, school students, participants of the FWJ and RUB employees are also automatically registered for the final course examinations. However, we do not send out registration confirmations.

Please note that you have to register separately for UNIcert® exams.

What requirements do I have to fulfil to be eligible for the exams?

In all courses of the ZFA there is an attendance requirement of 75% (read here) as well as other minimum requirements: If these are not met, you will not be admitted to the final course examination and will not be able to obtain a course certificate.

More detailed information on course requirements and exam admission requirements will be made available in the course.

What do I do if I have a technical malfunction during an online examination?

As lecturers and examiners at the ZFA, we make every effort to ensure that an online examination runs smoothly. However, it is also and above all your responsibility as an examinee to ensure prior to the examination date that you have sufficient technical equipment for your exam. This includes both a suitable end device and a stable internet connection.

You will find further information in this information sheet.

How and when do I get my grade?

The pass mark in the final course examinations at the ZFA is usually 60%.

Regular RUB students can view their course grade in eCampus under the heading "My transcripts". Students from other German universities who have been admitted to the courses as well as school students and employees will be notified of their course completion by e-mail (and receive a certificate if successful).

Please note that the lecturers have until 31 March in the winter semester and until 30 September in the summer semester to grade the exams. If you need your results sooner for valid reasons, please inform your lecturer as early as possible.

When am I allowed to attend the re-sit exam?

The re-sit exam is a second chance for students who have failed the main exam (or a significant part thereof), or an alternative appointment for students who were demonstrably unable to take the exam on the main date due to illness.

If you decide to use the re-sit appointment as your first exam attempt for other reasons, you will thereby forego a further examination attempt.

In the languages Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Turkish, no listening comprehension and no oral exam can usually be taken at the re-sit date. If you are unable to take these parts of the examination in the above-mentioned languages during the course due to illness, please contact Ms Anna Timukova ( immediately.

You can read about the registration procedure for the re-sit exams in the column on the right.

In courses with predominantly cumulative assessment, the components of which are integral parts of the course content and organisation, no blanket re-sits are usually offered outside the course.

How do I get special provisions?

If you would like to apply for disability provisions for participation in a language course and/or the related assessment procedures at the ZFA, please contact as early as possible (but no later than 8 weeks before the examination date concerned).
