Composition of an essay is one of the crucial tasks leading up to the exam and is necessary to obtain your credits. Students can join in groups of up to three to choose one of the presented topics, or choose their own after consultation with the teachers, then compose and submit an essay via Moodle by midnight of November 13th. An oral presentation will then follow in December, also as part of the credit. More information will be given at the first seminar.
Each week after the Tuesday lecture, a short mandatory online test will open up in Moodle. This has to be completed and submitted by each student before Friday midnight. Their purpose is to promote revision of that week's topic and they will be mostly focused on (but not entirely limited to) what was discussed during the lecture, thus helping you form a stronger memory of the topic for the future.
Credits are awarded based on the essay, presentation, tests and presence at seminars.
They will be listed in SIS before exam period starts.
The exam will be held in person, orally.
Dates will be listed on December 16th, sign-ups will open December 19th.
Pre-term examinations will be held during the week 9.-13.1.2023.
The list of exam topics is listed here.
- Lectures! Each exam topic should be at least in part be covered during one of the lectures - not exhaustively (which is impossible given the time alotted), so we expect self-study to be an important part of your preparation. The lectures should however give you an idea of what is important and put the systems into proper context.
