Examination modalities

Two written exams on November, 20th 2015 (4 to 7 pm) and on January, 15th 2016 (4 to 7 pm) make up for 75% of the final grade. In addition, the points from the tutoria ("Kreuzerlübung", 15%) and from the plena (short unannounced tests, 10%) will be taken into consideration.

To pass the course 3 criteria have to be fulfilled:

(1) at least 50% total points,

(2) at least 20% of the points at each of the two written exams,

(3) at least 50% of the examples given in the tutorium must have been marked with a cross
