There is no compulsory test for final school exams in North Rhine-Westphalia.

The administrative court in Münster ruled this out in an urgent decision.

Schoolchildren are therefore allowed to take final exams without a prior corona test.

The court instructed the North Rhine-Westphalia Chamber of Agriculture to let a prospective gardener take part in his final professional examination - without having to show a negative rapid test or be tested on site.

The court ruled that students attending a vocational college in Bonn have a "fundamental rights" right to participate: Anyone who has been admitted to the gardening examination also has the right to take part.

The Chamber of Agriculture intervenes in this right if it requires a negative test result.

However, the legal situation for final vocational exams is "clearly regulated" in the state's Corona Care Ordinance: According to this, pupils can take their final school exams and final vocational exams without having to submit a corona test.

However, the examinations must then be carried out separately from the examinations of tested students.

A complaint against the not yet legally binding decision of Monday can be lodged with the Higher Administrative Court within two weeks.

However: The test, which is being disputed in court, is tomorrow, Wednesday.
