OS exam

The summer exam session is over.

The second exam date (presentation) is on Tuesday, July 4, 2023 and starts at 14:00. The exam follows the same rules as the first presentation, the hours are the same, only the date is changed. Exam content (questions, problems) will obviously be also changed. See below for details.

The first exam date (presentation) is on Friday, June 9, 2023 and starts at 14:00. See below.

As discussed at the lectures, the exam consists of two parts and provides different possible tracks. Also, we provide a bonus track to equivalate (equate) the exam in a manner related to the work you have done at the lab (see section B, below).

All students must choose the type of exam by filling in this form on Campus Virtual until June 5th, 2023.

A. The standard exam consists of two parts:

  • Part 1. Written exam, as a set of assignments that must be done in a limited time interval during the exam day. They will be:
    • a) A mandatory quiz consisting of 13-15 random multiple choice questions. The quiz must be filled in in 15 minutes. The maximum grade provided by the quiz alone is 7. Each question may have multiple valid answers, and the grade for that question is proportional to the number of correct answers. Selecting a wrong answer voids the respective question regardless of the other chosen answers.
    • b) An optional assignment consisting of developing a C program in a similar style with what you have explored at the lab. The program will have to be written from scratch during a limited time, and it must work as described in its specification. Programs with errors or which do not compile will not be taken into consideration. This will provide the additional maximum 3 points for a total grade of maximum 10.
  • Part 2. Oral exam, consisting of direct questions from the examiner to the student, in an interview style. This part will only be activated when necessary, at the examiner's choice, to clarify possible issues observed at the written part. Students will be asked to participate at a further date, and failing to do so will end up with failing the exam.

B. As an exception, this semester students can choose to equivalate (equate) their Exam with their Lab assignment grade (the project done during the semester) if that grade is equal with or higher than 5. For this purpose, they must fill in the form linked above with the proper choice. Once the equivalation is chosen, it will be valid for ALL exam dates (presentations) and cannot be changed after the first one. '''Important: students that choose this for
