Update due to Covid-19 dated April 21, 2020:

The exam for this lecture series takes place digitally in the format of a multiple choice exam with ten partially open questions. The assignment of grades remains as described below. By registering for this digital exam, you agree to this exam mode. A second, third or fourth exam date, which may also be carried out online, may differ formally from the first date or the previous dates.

The digital written test is carried out using Moodle. As a student you have to log in with your u:account and thereby confirm your identity. Additional identification methods are not planned.

Number of possible exams:
By registering for this digital exam, you agree to its exam mode. The number of tries for exams will be as usual (i. e. there are four possible examinations per course).

Examination supervision:
In the case of digital written exams, at least one competent person will be announced (on the cover sheet of the exam) who may be reached digitally before, during and after the exam and who is available for questions about the exam and any (technical) problems. If you have technical problems, you can also contact the ZID helpdesk.

Examination inspection:
Online exams can also be inspected by the student wondering about his/her grade. Students should contact their examiners.

Cheat:
