Entering the building

An MNS mask must still be worn when entering the building. Please use the entrance for employees, as it is only used for random checks. Students must have their "pass" ready for students (which they will receive automatically via TISS between 48 and 24 hours before the start of the exams) and use a separate entrance so that there are no traffic jams. Of course, guidance systems are also available in the building.

In the lecture hall

The lecture halls are opened by GUT at least 45 minutes before the start of the examination.

In all lecture halls that are open for examinations, the seats to be used are numbered and marked.

If you want to wear a visor as exam supervisor, please note that this is not sufficient protection for the identity check. An MNS mask must be worn until the identity check is completed. In order to obtain such a visor, you should ideally contact GUT, opens an external URL in a new window in advance so that a corresponding number of visors can be prepared.

A seating plan must be prepared for each examination for documentation purposes.

A box with surface disinfectant, wiping cloths, emergency masks and tweezers will be placed in each of the lecture rooms relevant to the examination.

Ending the examination and leaving the examination lecture hall

We recommend that students leave the exam upside down on the table for delivery so that the examiner can collect all the exams after completion.
