Prüfungsinformationen

Prüfungsmethode/n

There will be three problem sets. You have to hand in individual, written solutions for each of these problem sets. Your problem set solutions will be graded. Each problem set is worth up to 10% of your final grade.

There will be a two-hour, closed-book final exam, tentatively scheduled for 25-Jan-17. 

PhD students: This final exam is worth 60% of your grade, the problem sets are worth 30%, and your final research report accounts for the final 10%. Hence, to get a good final grade, you need to perform well on both exam and problem sets / report. There will be some choice on the final exam: In total, you’ll have to answer three questions from a choice of four.

Master students: This final exam is worth 70% of your grade, the problem sets are worth 30%. Hence, to get a good final grade, you need to perform well on both exam and problem sets. There will be some choice on the final exam: In total, you’ll have to answer three questions from a choice of four.
