What is to be done in case of illness during or on the examination date?
General Principles:
Students are obligated to hand in a medical certificate with the examination office by mail or in person immediately after the decision not to participate. A medical attestation is to be handed in before the respective exam date. Otherwise the missed exam is counted as pass fail.

Procedure for students of the H-BRS
The non-participation of an exam requires a filled-in form "Withdrawal from Examination due to Illness" and a dostors note / medical attestation. The moment of the first entry of the attestation is crucial. The original attestation is relevant for final recognition. Incomplete forms will not be processed. If the Examinations Office has any reason to believe that the medical certificate is unfounded, it can require you to see a public health officer. In case of illness, students must supply proof of illness by submitting a medical report or medical certificate form to the Examinations Office. An exact diagnosis is helpful but not necessary. The reason for the exam absence is irrelevant, however the formulation "Due to sickness, Mr.... / Ms... (Student´s name) is not able to attend todays exam" must be noted on the medical certificate, signed by the doctor with a stamp of the medcial facility. Please note that the medical examination must be issued at the latest on the same day of the missed exam, the period of sickness must include the exam date and the original medical certificate is to be submitted until three days at the latest to the examination office.

What is to be done in case of sickness?
1. In case of sickness, visit the doctor at the latest on the day of your examination date, in order to receive an offical doctor´s medical attestation. IMPORTANT: The day or the period attested on your sickness note should cover the examination day!
​2. Scan your medical attestation + the "Withdrawal from Examinations"-Form and
​3. Send both attached to the E-Mail, on the fastest way to the examination office via E-Mail: pruefungenmasterCR@h-brs.de and the MBA Support Office in CC (info@mba-ngo.com). 4. Please send the original dostor´s note via postmail to the examination office immediately after your E-Mail via post mail to the following address:

Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg
Frau Angelika Dierich
Grantham Allee 20
53757 Sankt Augustin

A valid withdrwal from your exam is only possible when the original medical certificate is been submitted until three days after the respective exam date (at the latest) to the examination office via post mail! Negligence of this rules result in lost exam tries.
