Here is the PDF of the written exam and here is a version of the exam with solutions (unsuitable for learning + no guarantee for correctness)

## Written Exam

The written exam for the course takes place on **Tuesday, February 12th, 2019 from 14:00 - 16:30 h** in room 101-00-026 (HĂ¶rsaal 026).

24 people participated in the exam. It was not allowed to leave the room before the end of the exam. The exams were corrected on the same day. The results were entered into the HISinOne by 20:00 h.

The exam inspection will place on Wednesday, February 13, 2019 from 13:00 - 14:00 h in room 051-02-028 (office Prof. Bast). TODO participants came to check their exam. The grade improved by one step in TODO cases.

A maximum of 100 points could be reached. The minimum number of points needed to pass the exam was 50. The assignment of points to marks and the distribution of grades over the participants was as follows. Note that the counts on the right-hand side sum up to 24, which happens to be the number of people who participated in the exam. This is no coincidence.
