Application for compensation for disadvantages (improvement of the average mark)
With this special request, you can claim circumstances that have prevented you from achieving a better average mark.
The average grade is an essential selection criterion for the allocation of study places. Therefore, the aim is to compensate for performance impairments which have prevented applicants from achieving a better average grade/score when acquiring their higher education entrance qualification (e.g. Abitur). If such circumstances and their effects are proven, the application for admission with an improved average grade/score will be included in the award procedure. It should be noted here that the focus is not only on the Abitur examination itself, but also on performance in the upper school years leading to the Abitur.
Application for compensation for disadvantages (improvement of the waiting period)
With this special application, you can assert circumstances that have prevented you from obtaining your university entrance qualification earlier.
The waiting period is calculated from the time you acquire your university entrance qualification. However, there may be circumstances which have delayed the acquisition of the higher education entrance qualification. Applicants will then have less waiting time. In this case, the waiting period will be taken into account on the basis of an earlier date on which the higher education entrance qualification was acquired. The applicants concerned can then participate in the selection with a waiting period which would probably have been reached without the delays.
