Backup exam regulations / information

[Long message ahead, please read it all carefully if you attend the backup exam]

Dear all,

the exam is just a couple of days away at this point. Since the registration deadline for taking the exam has passed, I have assigned seats to everyone now. These can be viewed in your "Personal Status" page in the CMS. Note that to avoid congestion at the doors, we will use all four entrances to the lecture hall.

- If you are seated in rows 1, 5, or 9 and in seats 1, 5, or 11, please use the *first* door on the right when entering the foyer.
- If you are seated in rows 1, 5, or 9 and in seats 15, 19, or 23, please use the *second* door on the right when entering the foyer.
- If you are seat in rows 13 or 17 and in seats 1, 5, or 11, please use the *first* door on the left when entering the building from the top (facing E2 4).
- If you are seat in rows 13 or 17 and in seats 1, 5, or 11, please use the *second* door on the left when entering the building from the top (facing E2 4).

The formula becomes more obvious if you click on the assigned seat you can see in the CMS (first three rows take the front two entrances, last two the back entrances).

Please also note the following message that I am asked to inform you about from the university:

**Please note that it is absolutely necessary for you to bring your own protection mask with you. Students who have a doctor’s certificate that they cannot wear protection masks have to bring their own face shields andwear these instead of a mask.**

We will open the doors at 8:45. Please be sure to be there on time, such that we can do the ID checks *before* the exam starts. Since it is mandatory for you to wear a mask when we check your ID, this just makes it less annoying to you *during* the exam. *For to the safety of all persons in the room it is also strongly recommended to wear protection masks during the entire exam.*

While waiting to enter the room, please also ensure that you keep your distance from each other. This is particularly relevant these days as numbers are on the rise and I would to avoid our backup exam becoming a superspreading event.

Also (and I will re-post this on Sunday):

If your answer is "yes" to one or more of the following questions, then you are not allowed to attend the exam. If you provide a doctor's certificate to the examination office later on, the examination attempt will be canceled and will not count.

Did you have definite contact with a Covid-19 patient, who was tested positive, in the last 14 days?
Do you have any of the following symptoms?
- Cough / Husten
- Sore throat / Halsschmerzen
- Nasal congestion / runny nose / Schnupfen
- Diarrhoea /Durchfall
- Fever /Fieber
- Aches and pains / Gliederschmerzen
- Loss of smell (e.g. no longer able to smell burnt food) / Geruchsverlust
- Loss of taste (e.g. unable to distinguish when food is burnt) / Geschmacksverlust

If you are unsure about any of these questions, please consult a doctor to decide whether or not your health status is critical. If the decision is that you can participate, you must bring a medical certificate attesting to that along to the exam.

Note also that the university has decided to allow students to participate irrespective of whether they live in a risk area (currently LK Neunkirchen and St. Wendel).

Should you have any questions, please raise them early. While I will re-post the questionaire on Sunday, please do not expect me to react to emails over the weekend. Since the exam starts at 9am on Monday, there will be little time that morning to answer your questions.
