Retake exam UPDATE (posted June 17, 2020)

The retake exam will take place on June 22 between 11:30 - 14:30 (+30 if you have an extension). The location of the exam is the Huygens building, rooms Huygens 204 and Huygens 211/14 (so not the Snellius as was mentioned earlier). Please read the following guidelines for physical access to University buildings: guidelines. The nature of the retake will be similar to the primary exam: multiple choice questions, similar in style, and similar in length. However, this exam will not be on paper, as the primary exam, but digital. We ask you to bring your own laptop for this, so please make arrangements for this early on. If being physically present at the retake is problematic, please contact the lecturer: a.j.knobbe@liacs.leidenuniv.nl . The published example exam is still relevant for preparation: link.

retake registration (posted June 17, 2020)

The mandatory registration for the retake has been closed. If you have registered in time, you can safely come to the Huygens building on the day of the retake. Also, if you have participated in the first exam, chances are that you have been registered also, so you can participate. It is wise to check this with the lecturer, if you haven't done so already. The address is a.j.knobbe@liacs.leidenuniv.nl . If you have not registered by now, and are not otherwise know to us, it is unlikely that you can participate. Sorry for this strictness (due to the strict Corona regulations). Please contact the lecturer to see what can be arranged last-minute.
