You can also set the priorities of chosen courses of study in your user account under the application portal of hochschulstart.de. Setting the priorities means ordering your chosen courses of study according to your own preferences.
This setting of priorities is important so that hochschulstart.de, in the coordination phase 2, can offer the places of study in preferential order. It is recommended to set the priorities as early as possible. If you haven't set the priorities before the end of the decision phase the applications will be ordered in the application portal of hochschulstart.de according to their submission date. This means that first submitted application will have the highest priority.
