Guide to oral/practical exams

What is a oral/practical exam?

For an oral/practical exam, you arrive at the university and are examined by an examiner and a censor.

In some cases, there is preparation time just before the actual examination. In other cases, you have prepared a presentation beforehand, or you draw a topic that you will be examined on immediately.

The specific format of your oral/practical exam can be found in the course catalogue
