Up to a specific deadline you may de-register from the course via CM without specifying any particular reasons. If you wish to de-register from the exam after the deadline, you should do so by contacting the exams office (Prüfungsbüro). 

If you are not an FU student, you are required to register via KVV. If you have any problems accessing it, please email F. Levikov.
