Examination modalities

Two written exams (80%):

23.11.2018 and 25.1.2019 at  2 pm
In each exams 40% of the points are needed as a minimum.

An additional test on 22.3.2019 starting at 16:00 in the FH HS1 replaces the exam in which less points have been gained.

Duration of tests: 2 1/2 hours; exam tasks from lectures and tutorials; you are allowed to take with you:  pen(s) ,  1 DIN A4 page (single side). Student ID.

 

 Tutorium/"Kreuzerlübung" (20%):

At the beginning of each tutorium the students marks those exercises which they have prepared. If the student presents one of these at the black board, a weighting factor between 0 and 1 is assigned,  The Tutorium is evaluated according to the Eq.:

     minimum (% of marked exercises  * mean weighting factor for the black board presentation)

The Tutorium with the least marked exercises is not included  ( "Streichresult"  for not prepared Tutorium or for missed tutorium in case of illness),

50% of the combined points (tests and tutorium) are needed to pass (grade 4). 62.5% for grade  3, 75% for grade  2, 87.5% for grade 1.
