Exam dates and registration

The examination period at the TUM School of Life Sciences is usually two weeks after the end of lectures and two weeks before lectures start in the following semester.

The generally valid examination periods of the winter term 2021/22 are:

14.02. - 26.02.2022
11.04. - 23.04.2022

Different time periods may apply for the study programmes Sustainable Resource Management, Forestry and Resource Management and Forestry and Wood Science. Please check TUMonline for your examination dates.


The individual examination dates are published in the campus management system TUMonline.

For the individual examinations and repeat examinations, you usually must register or deregister yourself, if you decide not to take an examination. You can only register and deregister via TUMonline. How this works is explained in this video.

Please note that there is a fixed registration and deregistration period per exam in TUMonline. This period is also displayed in TUMonline at the corresponding exam information. If you have not registered within this period, you are not entitled to take the exam.

Exception (suspended in summer term 2020, in winter term 20/21 and in summer term 2021): If you are enrolled in a Bachelor program with basic and orientation exams (GOP), you will be automatically registered for all GOP exams of the respective semester in the 1st and 2nd semester, i.e. an independent registration is not necessary in the 1st academic year. Excluded are free elective modules. Nevertheless, please check whether you have been registered correctly for all examinations.

Withdrawal from examination

If you are unable to take an exam, you must immediately submit a written withdrawal request to the Campus Office (not the Examinations Office!). This will then be automatically forwarded to the chairman of the examination board of your degree programme. In the rescission request you have to explain why you were not able to take the exam. In addition, a medical certificate must be enclosed. This must be based on a medical check-up that took place on the day you want to claim the inability to take the exam. Please note the information in the application and the legal regulations in § 13 Abs. 2 ADPO or § 10 Abs. 7 APSO.

Please send the (electronically) completed and signed form by mail to: withdrawal.co[at]ls.tum.de

Please keep the original certificate. In individual cases, we reserve the right to request it.
