Examination modalities

NEW: As announced during the preliminary discussion, starting with SS 2016 the following changes apply to CN2 lecture content, lab assignments and examination method:

  • The Lecture part is read between beginning of March and end of April. The lecture closes with a written examination (27.04.2016, registration via TISS starting on 13.04.2016). A questionnaire will be provided mid of April to support preparation for the written lecture examination.

  • A positive grade on the lecture part (at least 50% of score) is prerequisite for attending the lab part of the VU. Not passing the lecture part results in a negative grade for the VU CN2 for this semester.

  • The laboratory part is done in groups of 2 students and includes three assignments that must be solved and submitted together with a detailed report. Registration for the lab groups uses TISS and will start after the lecture exam has been graded. The score of the lab part is composed of the score on the reports and the score of the final oral examination.

  • Lecture and lab score contribute equally to the final grade. Positive score on each, lecture and lab part, is a condition for passing the CN2 VU.

Summary: Written lecture examination, practical laboratory, submission and reports, final oral examination.
