The exam is divided into a written and an oral part, but you will only one grade for the whole
The first opportunity for the written exam is at the end of the winter term.
Then, there will be offered three exam dates each semester.
For admission to the oral part, the score in the written exam has to be at least 50% of the
maximally possible score.
The oral part is taken preferrably at one of the dates offered on the list provided during the
written examination, which lie usually within one month after the written exam.
If not taken within six months after the written exam, you resign from it and
will get the final grade "Failed".
In case of failing, both parts of the exam have to be repeated.
The exercise sessions take place on Wednesday 16:30h-18:30h (lecture room ZS 1) and Thursday
13:00h-15:00h (lecture room Sem 104), respectively (depending on your group).
The exercise sessions start on Oct 16 and 17 and end on January 29 and 30, respectively.
Registration and attendance are mandatory.
Please register in TISS for one of the two groups.
- Prepare the homework given on the exercise sheets before the respective course unit.
problem you have solved and you think you can present the solution on the blackboard, tick the
appropriate box in TUWEL before the deadline of the respective exercise session. For both groups
the deadline is Wednesday 8:00 a.m. each week.
- Attendance to the exercise sessions is mandatory.
- After the course, you must have solved 60% of all problems.
- The final grade depends on the percentage of problems you solved and on your presentations
on the blackboard.
This means precisely: If P is the precentage of problems you have solved and B
is the average score of your blackboard presentations (where 100 is the maximum; thus
0≤B≤100 and 0≤P≤100), then
your grade is determined as follows:
- The overall percentage is calculated with the formula
- If P<60 the final grade is failed, else the value of A determines
- 60≤A<70 is sufficient,
- 70≤A<80 is satisfactory,
- 80≤A<90 is good,
- 90≤A≤100 is very good.
