Dear students,

This news contains important information regarding the registration for the final exam. Please make sure to read the part below carefully.

The final exam will take place on February 11, 2023. You must register for this exam if you want to participate. The registration modalities differ from those of the midterm exams. In addition, they also differ across study programs:

  • If your study program uses HISPOS/LSF, the registration takes place there. Registration and deregistration is possible until February 4, 23:59. Please note that you will need TANs to register there. We import registrations from HISPOS/LSF to the dCMS on a regular basis. You can check your current registration status on your personal status page in the Registrations section. Please note that it may take some time until your registration is displayed there.
  • If you study Wirtschaftsinformatik, we will import the registration you should have already done from ViPa/FlexNow2. Your registration status is displayed on your personal status page in the Registrations section. Please verify its correctness. If your registration has not been transferred, contact us immediately but no later than February 4, 23:59.
  • If your study program uses neither HISPOS/LSF nor ViPa/FlexNow2, we do not have any information about your registration deadlines. You must take care of this yourself. Additionally, you have to register separately in the dCMS on your personal status page. Registration and deregistration is possible until February 4, 23:59.

If you have any questions about or issues with the exam registration, please contact us before the registration deadline.

We again ask you (if interested) to register on your personal status page for a specific time slot for load-balancing purposes.

On Monday, you must bring your student id to the inspection. You will not be allowed to take pictures or notes during the inspection, and there will be no time for interactions with the team that aim at sharpening your problem-solving capabilities.

Note that if you register for a slot between 8 am and 9 am, you may also inspect Minitest J.

Dear students,

The results of the midterm retake exam are now available on your personal status page in the dCMS, in case you participated in the retake.

We can share the following observations:

  • We had 243 participants in total. 100 of them made the cut which was again set to 40 points.
  • For the majority, namely retakers who had originally failed the midterm (142 participants), their score has improved by about 4 points on average.
  • In total, 32 more students now managed to pass the exam, and thus can proceed to the final exams (if Minitest scores allow).
  • About one third of the participants (86) had previously passed the midterm. Their point score is on average 4 points below the respective original score.
  • The largest jump upwards was by 22 points.

In the dCMS, retake participants will also be able to see the points scored per exam exercise posed. The sum thereof might be lower than the overall point score reported, due to the presence of a linear adjustment (by 4.5 points).

You will have the chance to inspect the marking of your exam. This exam inspection will take place on Monday, January 23, 2023, from 8 am to 11 am. We will announce further details soon.

Dear students,

The results of the midterm exam are now available on your personal status page in the dCMS. There have been 387 participants. With at least 40 points, the midterm exam is passed. This has been achieved by 170 participants. The highest score obtained is 88 out of 90.

In case you have passed the exam, the following information gives you an indication of your relative performance. For the population that has passed the exam, …

  • the best 10% have a point score of 68 or above,
  • the next 25% are at 54 points or above,
  • the next 30% are at 46 points or above,
  • the next 25% are above 40 points,
  • the last 10% are at 40 points.

In the dCMS, you will also be able to see the points you scored per exam exercise.

In some rare cases, we prematurely terminated the marking in case it was obvious that no more than 35 points were reachable. This might apply to you if the point score displayed is less than 21. In this case, the score shown might be an underapproximation of the points scored, and you can compute an overapproximation by adding the maximal points achievable for the exercises marked “n.p.” on your personal status page in the dCMS.

You will have the chance to inspect the marking of your exam. This exam inspection will take place on Monday, January 9, 2023, from 8 am to 11 am. We will announce further details soon.

Further, note that the midterm retake will take place on Saturday, January 14, 2023. In case you want to participate in the retake, you must register for it on your personal status page before January 7, 23:59.

The entire team wishes you happy holidays.

Dear students,

We, the team of tutors, will organise a mock midterm exam (“Probeklausur”). The mock exam is completely voluntary. It is a chance for you to see how exams are conducted at university, under conditions that are as realistic as possible. It does not contribute to the final grade or eligibility of taking exams. The mock exam is entirely created by tutors. Therefore, its content is neither relevant nor irrelevant for the real exam.

The mock exam is scheduled for Saturday, December 10. It is going to take place at 9:00 am in the Audimax lecture hall (building B4 1, room 0.01). You will have to register for the mock exam on your personal status page in the dCMS by December 7, 23:59. After the registration phase is over, we will assign you a seat. You will then be able to see your seat assignment on your personal status page in the dCMS. If you want to participate, please be on time and bring your student ID on Saturday. No auxiliary materials (calculator, cheat sheets, …) are allowed.

The mock exam will take around 90 minutes. Afterwards, we will present partial solutions for some of the exercises.

There is yet another announcement to make: On Thursday before the exam (December 15), there will be an additional XXL Office Hour from 12 pm to 5:30 pm in HS003 in E1 3. There you can ask all questions you might have before the midterm.
On Friday (December 16), there will be the same number of tutors like every other week. So preferably you should come on Thursday, because we cannot guarantee that your questions can get answered on Friday.

We are looking forward to seeing you!

Cheers,
Your Programming 1 tutors
