Objection to Examination Grade

Should you be convinced your DSH-examination has not been graded correctly, you have the opportunity to object to your examination grade.

This objection must be voiced in writing within four weeks after the announcement of your written examination grade. Please note, due to legal reasons, an objection may not be received via email or phone.

Please send your decision of objection to:

DSH-Büro
Leibniz Language Centre der Leibniz Universität Hannover
Welfengarten 1
D-30167 Hannover


Your decision of objection must have a distinct reason. Statements such as 'I need a DSH-2 until next week,' or 'All parts have been graded too harshly' will not suffice to grant a new grading of your examination.


If you shall not agree with your grade, you must follow these steps:

  • Book an inspection of your grade.
  • During the inspection, take distinct handwritten notes concerning each task that has been graded wrongly in your opinion. You may copy your solutions as well as the suggested solutions.
  • Copies, photos or scans of examination documents are prohibited!
  • Formulate a distinct decision of objection and send it to us via mail or fax. You may type your decision of objection on a computer, but it must be signed by hand to be legally binding. If you fail to sign your decision of objection, it will not be processed.

We prepared a document you may use to: 

You will usually receive written notice about your objection within four weeks. That is in case you have fulfilled all legal formalities.
