COVID-19; General information [09.12.2022]
Semester of study and standard period of study (Summer Semester 2020, Winter Semester 2020/2021, Summer Semester 2021 and Winter Semester 2021/2022)
Summer Semester 2020, Winter Semester 2020/2021, Summer Semester 2021, and Winter Semester 2021/2022 are not considered "semesters of study" with regard to the standard period of study and deadlines specified in the examination regulations. This means that students will not suffer any disadvantages if they are unable to comply with examination dates and deadlines due to the special situation in these semesters.
These "deadline extensions" occur automatically, and no separate application is necessary.
In addition, students who were/are enrolled in a degree prgramme in Summer Semester 2020, Winter Semester 2020/2021, Summer Semester 2021, and Winter Semester 2021/2022 and who have not been granted a leave of abcence will generally be granted an extended "individual" standard period of study that deviates from the regular standard period of study.
No simplified withdrawal for examinations
No additional resit
§ 4 a of the Coronavirus Statutes only applies to examinations conducted before 01.11.2021.
If the examination and study regulations specify deadlines independent of the semester, Art. 99 para 1 BayHSchG will not apply.
§ 19 para 4 p. 1 PSO BWL B. Sc.: "If the missing examinations are not passed within one year after the deadline specified in para 3 sentence 1 for reasons for which the student is responsible, or if the repetition options have been exhausted beforehand, the bachelor's examination is considered to be failed on the final attempt."
§ 19 para 1 p. 3 PSO Biology B. Sc.: "The resit examination is usually to be taken within six months, at the latest within the framework of the examination dates of the relevant following semester."
These examples are not directly related to the semester of study, but rather generally define a deadline. Art. 99 para 1 BayHSchG is therefore not applicable to these regulations. However, the Coronavirus Statutes provide for a separate provision in § 7 for this constellation, whereby these deadlines are also automatically extended by the time of Summer Semester 2020 or Winter Semester 2020/2021 or Summer Semester 2021 or Winter Semester 2021/22, i.e. (in each case) six months.
Further specifics can also be found in the Corona Statutes.
