|We ask that you read the information below carefully and register for the examination only if you intend to take it under the specified conditions https://www.tum.de/en/about-tum/news/coronavirus/corona-teaching-exams/: You are not permitted to take part in the examination if you are subject to quarantine pursuant to the current Entry Quarantine Ordinance, if you have had contact with someone infected with COVID-19, or if you exhibit symptoms on the day of the examination. If you belong to a risk group and are thus subject to a severe progression of the illness, you are required to take the necessary measures for your own protection if you plan to take part in the examination, or to refrain from participating. The TUM Corona Crisis Task Force (firstname.lastname@example.org) or your attending physician can advise you in this regard.||till 2021-03-22 (cancelation of registration till 2021-03-24)|
