Question: I have received instructions from my Erasmus coordinator to kindly ask you to grade my priority exam faster. It is very important that I have a complete Transcript of Records, since I’ll need to send it by mid-September to my home university.

Answer: Officially, grades need to be made by the end of the semester (end of March or end of September). In our group, exams are usually graded on the day of the exam. However, the grades need to be cross-checked and make their way through the administration. Sometimes, there are a few cases with wrong matrikel numbers etc. In any case, exam grades will available definitely before semester end.
Seminar grades are sometimes made by the end of the semester only – to allow some students extensions for their papers. Erasmus students should thus always mention to their teachers, if they need their grade early.
