(Date, Signature)


The actual exam works as follows:

  • At 15:00, staff will publish the actual exam tasks (replace the test document).
  • Students have 60 minutes to work on the exam on their own. The exam is open book, that is, students can use teaching material. However, students are not allowed to collaborate.
  • Answers have to be written by hand on paper! As always, students need to ensure that their handwritten text can be read. We recommend to use only side of each sheet to improve scan results.
  • Students number all pages, starting with the title page as #01, and write their name and student number on each page.
  • Questions can be asked via Zoom and will be answered by the staff (optional / recommended).


At 16:00, staff will announce that students have to upload their answers until 16:15. Then, students

  • check whether all pages are numbered and bear their name and student number,
  • add the total number of pages to the title page (count INCLUDING the title page)
  • take a photo of or scan every page incl. the title page,
  • check for every photo / scan that the handwritten text can be read,
  • name photos / scans according to the following schema: Surname_Firstname_page.extension, e.g., Mustermann_Max_03.pdf (no page number, if all pages are in one file),
  • upload photos / scans to your upload folder (see "Preparation in Advance").

Trouble-shooting will be provided via Zoom. If file-upload fails, the fallback option is to send the photos / scan via email to hirschmeier@wim.uni-koeln.de.
