Examination modalities

 

For the final mark the results of the tests are weighted by 2/3 that of the exercises by 1/3. Additionally, you have to achieve at least 50% of the total points and at least 40% of the test points in each test.

To solve the exercise problems you should work together in teams of two.

If you failed one test you may participate in an additional test (Nachtest) at the beginning of the next WS.

If you plan to improve your mark through the additional test, please inform us after the 2nd test.

If you only failed for the test part in a previous VU, you can take credit of your previous exercises and only participate in the test.
