All examinations are oral and individual examinations. The time frame for the final exams is 30 minutes (+ 10 minutes for potential clarifications and to give you an indication about your performance). For legal and organizational reasons, the 'on-the-spot' indication is no binding information. The final schedule will be published on this page.

You need to sign in for one final exam session (lists will be accessible at the Computer Science Reception in CSIT). You need to sign into exam slot for your lab examination as well as your final examination - please check: if your name does not appear below on the weekends before the exam, contact me urgently. Remember that you need to submit your documentation for the final assignment, before you can sit the lab. exam.

Some hints for the oral examinations:

  • Train to talk about the topics and to transfer your knowledge in a structured and compact form.
  • Get to the point of the questions first, then expand with all the things which you know additionally about the addressed topic.
  • The nature of the questions is:
    • Checking the basic understanding of the field (approx. 50%).
    • Checking the ability to be critical about the introduced concepts (approx. 30%).
    • Checking the ability to handle the introduced concepts in a creative way (approx. 20%).
  • The questions are NOT about:
    • Bit-numbers in a specific controller.
    • Whether you share the opinions of the examiners.
    • About philosophies of time and space (pity, ain't it?).
  • You might convince yourself that the process is nice and fair by asking students, which finished the exam already. The questions will be all different though.

Also have a look on the exact examination criteria. And on the sample set of questions (just to get the taste of the real thing).

Postponing assessments is always possible with good reason. Good reasons are mostly issues which are not under your control. If you e.g. feel sick on the day of an assessment, please do not sit the exam. See a doctor instead and provide a certificate which indicates your condition. If you already know beforehand that a specific assessment date or deadline does not work for you, then contact us right away and we will work something out for you. In the interest of fairness we obviously will always require good reasons, which is specific to you and not under your control. All special and supplementary assessments are oral examinations.
