Digital viewing of exams via cmlife
Since the summer semester 2020, exams can be viewed digitally via cmlife; an application form is no longer required. As soon as the exams have been released by the examination office, you can view them in cmlife under "Studies"->"Overview"-> "Modules and Assessments". Please note that it may still take some time after the grades have been published before the exam can be viewed. As soon as an exam has been released for digital viewing, you will receive the notification via your event stream under the tab Study.
Note: For viewing exams digitally via cmlife, you must be logged into the network of the University of Bayreuth (via eduroam or VPN).
Requests for reassessment
Please note that in the case of a reassessment, the examination performance will be reassessed in its entirety. A request for a reassessment can only be granted in justified cases. Justified cases are, for example:
The request for a reassessment must be substantiated in a concrete and comprehensible manner. A general criticism of the correction is not sufficient to justify a request for a reassessment. Furthermore, criticism of the points/grading system is also not permissible as a justification. Therefore, always refer to a specific task or part of a task and explain objectively why a reassessment is necessary. References to the exams of other students or an allegedly unfair assessment are not sufficient.
Please also note any individual requirements of the respective chair, e.g. regarding deadlines or the form of the request!
The processing of a reassessment can take several weeks. As soon as the correction is completed, you will be informed by e-mail.
