If you are registered for a module, you are automatically registered for the module exam. You can deregister (from the module and thus the exam) until the specified cancellation deadline. This deadline varies per module; it is announced in the course catalogue under “Organization”.
The exact dates will be published on this website. Please double check if there are any changes with the rooms, shortly before the exam date.
* The repetition exams are not bound to fixed exam periods and can also take place at other times. However, they usually take place in calendar weeks 35 to 37.
The dates for oral module exams are set by the person responsible for the module – within the time slots specified above. Students will be informed of the exact time of the oral module exam via e-mail no later than two weeks before the exam date. The date(s) can already be found here beforehand.
No invitations to written module exams will be sent out. Please inform yourself in good time about your exam dates in class, on this page and the science faculty website.
If you cannot take part in a module exam for health reasons, you must deregister immediately via the student portal.
A request for deregistration including a medical certificate (or corresponding documents) must be submitted within 5 working days after the exam; in the student portal, choose "My applications" and then "Deregistration from performance record". Further information is available at https://www.mnf.uzh.ch/en/studium/wie-studieren/pruefungen.html The faculty reserves the right to conduct a medical exam by its own doctors.
If you are unable to attend, please also inform the professor responsible for the module.
You have the possibility to repeat a failed exam once. If you took the initial exam but did not pass it, you can retake it on the repetition date. Registration is necessary!
If you could not take the initial exam due to illness, or you used your option to postpone (see below), then you can also take it on the repetition date; in your case this will count as your first attempt.
If you do not take the exam on the repetition date, you can instead book the whole module again next time it is offered. Note that you might have to meet all requirements again (hand in exercises etc.) and that many elective modules are not offered on a regular cycle.
Core modules must be passed in order to graduate, i.e. you must either take the repetition exam or rebook the whole module. An elective module can be repeated if you want and a repetition exam is offered, or you can let it go and substitute with a different one.
Students at the bachelor level who started their current study program in fall 2021 or later have the option to postpone certain exams, i.e. to take their first attempt on the repetition date instead. This option exists for the following MAT modules only:
Fall semester modules
MAT 111 Linear Algebra I
MAT 121 Analysis I
MAT 141 Linear Algebra for the Sciences
MAT 182 Analysis for the Natural Sciences
Spring semester modules
MAT 112 Linear Algebra II
MAT 122 Analysis II
MAT 183 Stochastics for the Natural Sciences
MAT 184 Analysis for Chemistry
For more info and to check whether you are eligible (e.g. if you changed your study program), see the fact sheet on the Office of Student Affairs website. You can request the postponement via the MNF Student Admin tool until the end of the cancellation period indicated in the course catalogue.
