The Testat

If you successfully work on the home work (problem sheets), a testat will be given to you at the end of the semester. This testat is necessary for you to be admitted to the exam.

In order to obtain the testat you need to register in the student portal (https://studium.kit.edu). It is called "Vorleistung" there.

Please note: The AM I exam is part of the Orientierungsprüfung, which you must complete by the end of the third semester.

For the testat, you have to satisfy the following criteria:

  • Obtain at least 125 points on worksheets 1 to 10. This is 25% of all the total points obtainable (each worksheet is worth 50 points).
  • For at least 8 of those worksheets have at least 5 points from each.

The Exam

There will be a written exam on Saturday, 22nd of February.
Please note: The AM I exam is part of the Orientierungsprüfung and you need the testat to participate!
You won't be able to register for the exam, if the testat was not given to you. Note that you have to register for the testat as well (see above).

More information will is available at the website of the exam.

Seating plan is available at the German page.
