Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

The module examination is based on a written exam (90 minutes). Students have to apply basic concepts and methods of analysis to application problems in limited time. They are familiar with the central term of approximation.

General Remarks on Exams within Fundamentals Examination (GOP, Part 1) in the Bachelor programme Physics

The written exams in the mandatory modules of the first year in the Bachelor’s program Physics are subject to the rules of the Fundamentals Examination (GOP). Each non-passed exam may only be repeated once. If after the repeat exams of one semester the student failed in one and only one of the three exams a rescue exam is granted where the grade may be corrected to 4,0.

By act of the examination regulations (FPSO) students in the Bachelor’s program Physics are registered to the module exams and do not need to register in TUMonline. For students that do not show up at the exam the exam is counted as failed.

Exam Repetition

There is a possibility to take the exam at the end of the semester.

Current exam dates

Currently TUMonline lists the following exam dates. In addition to the general information above please refer to the current information given during the course.
