Examination modalities

The written exam is made of 18 questions - 1 point per question - and has to be completed in 120 min.

 

The grading scheme is as follows:

 

≥ 16 points = “Sehr Gut”, ≥ 13,5 points = “Gut”, ≥ 10,5 points = “Befriedigend”, ≥ 7,5 points = “Genügend” and less than 7,5 points = “Nicht Genügend” and the exam has to be repeated.
