The Bachelor examination takes place at the end of each semester during the semester break. We recommend to take the exam directly after attending the course. It is permitted to take the exam in both the basic as well as the extension course in the same semester. The length of the exam is 90 minutes and is divided into two parts:

  • General questions without further aids (ca. 20 - 30 minutes)
  • Calculation part: permitted aids are books, study documents, simple scientific calculators (ca. 60 - 70 minutes)

The exact length of each part can vary from semester to semester within the aforementioned scope.

Relevant for examination is always the curriculum from the most recent semester.
