Hi, 

the re-exam is on Friday, April 16, 2021. Due to the worsening COVID situation, the re-exam will be an oral exam. I will send out timeslots as soon as the registration is closed. You are only allowed to take the re-exam if you failed the main exam, did not show up to the main exam, or did not register for the main exam although you had more than 50 points on the practical part. You cannot use the re-exam to improve your main exam's grade.  

Cheers,
Michael

Hi, 

the results from the last practical are now available, and also the final points over all the practicals. You can find both lists in the test system. As written in the CMS, the maximum number of points is 50, and you need at least 26 points to qualify for the exam. I'm really impressed with how many of you achieved the maximum number of points. Well done!

There is a final, maybe a bit surprising, lecture challenge. I'd like to have feedback regarding the practicals. I decided to make this a lecture challenge as well, such that you can immediately benefit from giving feedback ;) The feedback is, of course, anonymous. When filling out the anonymous form, you will receive the flag which you can submit to get your points. You can, of course, also give feedback via the CMS or mail - the more feedback you give me, the happier I am. 

Cheers,
Michael

Practical 2 deadline

The deadline for practical 2 is wrongly stated in the description. It should be Sunday, January 10, 2021. I've also updated the PDF in the CMS with the correct date.
