Additional information on mode of examinationUm Ihre aktive Teilnahme im Übungsbetrieb zu messen, werden im Rahmen der Veranstaltung Kurzübungen als Lernelement angeboten. Die Resultate dieser Tests des gesamten Jahreskurses werden in einen Notenbonus von 0 bis 0.25 umgerechnet und anschliessend ungerundet zu der ungerundeten Note aus der schriftlichen Basisprüfung addiert.

Bonusleistungen aus Physik I (HS20) und aus Physik II (FS21) bleiben bestehen und müssen nicht wiederholt werden.
If the course unit is part of an examination block, the credits are allocated for the successful completion of the whole block.
This information can be updated until the beginning of the semester; information on the examination timetable is binding.
