Programming Exam

In order to participate in the software project, you must have passed the programming exam. The programming exam takes place at the beginning of each semester and lasts four hours. But this is nothing too wild and to make you feel well prepared, we have some samples here.

More about the procedure can be found on the official pages of the institute. Please note that in the Corona summer semester 2020 the exam was completely remote and included an oral part (to check you know your code), which normally doesn’t exist.


The latest exams can be comfortably downloaded as PDF.
