Grading

At the end of the semester there will be a written exam. We offer a bonus system for the exam if you successfully work on the exercises during the semester.

Maximum Bonus: You can improve your grade by up to 0.7.

Bonus System: Students can get bonus points from each exercise. At the end all points are summed up and the percentage of reached points is calculated. It is determined how many points are needed for a 0.7 grade improvement and the percentage is multiplied with this number and rounded to the next 0,5. The bonus cannot be used to pass the exam.

Example: Assume that three exercises exist, each with 10 bonus points achievable. Assume further that 100 points can be reached in the exam and 9 points are needed to improve a 3.3 to a 2.7, so 30 points from the exercises correspond to 9 bonus points.

A student reached 8, 6 and 7 points in the exercises, which is equivalent to 21/30 = 70%. The student gets 9 * 0.7 = 6.3 => 6,5 bonus points for the exam. This bonus is applied to the final grade if the student reaches at least 25 points in the exam without the bonus.
