Complaints offices for exam matters
The Hamburg higher education act (Hamburgisches Hochschulgesetz, HmbHG) and the Universität Hamburg Statutes require that every faculty provide students with a complaints office for exam matters. Generally, a member of teaching staff or a student representative is available to act as ombudsperson.
Complaints offices mediate and seek solutions to conflicts arising with regard to examination matters.
This gives you, the student, a neutral point of contact in cases of exam-related conflicts.
Of course, you may still submit a formal appeal to the examination board. These complaints offices are not authorized to make decisions. This remains the sole responsibility of the reconsideration proceeding.
