Examination modalities

Oral exam consisting of 2 parts with the two lecturers. The partial examin lasts max. 20 minutes and consists of 4 questions, each of which is assessed with one point.  ≥ 3.5 points correspond to a "Very Good", ≥ 3 points to a "Good", ≥ 2.5 points to a "Satisfactory", ≥ 2.0 points to a "Satisfactory" and less than 2.0 points to a "Not Satisfactory". The grade is calculated from the two subscores with a weighting of 60 (Seiboth):40 (Srebotnik).
