The makup exam will be on 17. September at 8:00 a.m. in lecture hall N00.001 in the biomedical center BMC. To take the make-up exam you need to register by e-mail to Dirk Metzler before 10. September. You will have 90 minutes to answer the questions. Participants can bring non-programmable pocket calculators an their personal assortment of formulas on an A4 sheet. This A4 can have any contents on both sides BUT ONLY IN YOUR OWN HANDWRITING! (no copy, not print-out, not another person's handwriting)
