The oral exam is about 25 minutes long and will take place on February 5, on Zoom.
During the exam, you will have to activate your camera and microphone, identify yourself with a student ID, and be prepared to share your screen if asked to do so. If you have a tablet, you can use that to write your answers to the questions by sharing the screen with me. Otherwise, you can write on a piece of paper and simply show it to the camera. (If you do so, make sure to uncheck the "Mirror my Video" box in Zoom > Preferences > Background & Filters", before the exam starts, please). Since university regulations require to keep a record of oral examinations, the exam will be recorded. The recording will be stored in a private archive until the end of the course and will be deleted afterwards. If you do not want to be recorded, get in touch with the instructor, please.
The exam covers the content of the 4 lectures on SysV (see syllabus above). Your grade will be determined based on three criteria: correctness of the answers, clarity of the explanations, and degree of independence in answering the questions.

In addition to the Q&A sessions, you can also ask questions on the Rocket Chat channel #Sysv (password: non-interference).
