Checklist for a successful exam registration:

  • Receive your TAN list, a list of "transaction numbers" similar to online banking.
    The HRZ will automatically send this to the postal address stored in MARVIN.
    Important also: For all departments only one list is active at a time, so you can also use these numbers for registration at other departments.
    I lost my TAN-List!
  • Registration or, if applicable, de-registration for course requirement/s and examination/s via MARVIN.
    ATTENTION! After expiry of the deadlines, you can no longer register or deregister for course requirements and examinations!
    If you participate in examinations unannounced, the services and results provided may not be evaluated. If you do not take part in the exam despite your report, this will be considered as a failure, unless there are valid reasons for your non-attendance. (e.g. illness) You have to inform the exam office immediately about this.
  • Check the registration or de-registration via MARVIN
    It is recommended that you recheck the exam registration/deregistration, because what is in the system on the exam day is valid!

What to do if it does not work?

For content or technical problems, please send an email with your name, matriculation number, study program and a screenshot of the error message to the examination office ().
If your email arrives within the registration and deregistration deadline set for this exam, it will be processed accordingly.
