Coronavirus: Regulations for sitting examinations

General / obligatory face masks / social distancing

General / obligatory face masks / social distancing

It is obligatory to wear a face mask across the entire site and stay at least 1.5 metres away from others, while in indoor areas where people cross paths, in corridors and in examination rooms everyone must wear masks that are certified to at least medical surgical standard in accordance with DIN EN 14683. This does not mean FFP2 masks, but masks certified to protect others – as opposed to unsuitable coverings such as scarves, snoods or collars pulled up over faces. For your own protection, we recommend wearing a FFP2 mask.  Even people with a certificate of exemption from wearing a mask on medical grounds are prohibited from accessing campus and taking examinations on site.

An overview of the various types of masks and how they are used is posted on the website of the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices.

You are permitted to drink or eat during an examination. and may remove your mask briefly for this purpose. However, out of consideration towards the other people in the room, we ask you to keep this to an absolute minimum. Examination scripts cannot be handed in early.
