Arrear system:

In India the common practice is to study at the last minute and write the exams to the level of passing. Even if we get an arrear we don’t worry much about it and attempt them again. But in Germany, you only have 3 attempts for a subject. If you are not able to pass within the given number of attempts, then you will be expelled out of the course or you have to study the degree again.


In the final semester of all degrees you have to submit a thesis of your project or project idea. There are predefined standards that must be followed for submitting a thesis under Masters degree. Again you cannot get a project thesis from shops and submit them. It must be your own work and plagiarism checks are regularly done. So choosing the degree of your interest and the one you can study is very important.
