Fi­nal Exams

We from the third year fi­nal­ly had our writ­ten fi­nal exam last Fri­day. It was ori­gi­nal­ly sche­du­led for April 29th, but was post­po­ned to June 19th due to Co­ro­na. 

This si­tua­ti­on cau­sed us to be un­der a lot of pres­su­re and stress, as both the fi­nal pro­ject had to be done and the exam pre­pa­ra­ti­on had to be ma­na­ged so­mehow. 

The dead­line for han­ding in the fi­nal pro­ject was on 07.06. – af­ter that it was steep for us to prepa­re for the exams. All the over­ti­me built up for the pro­ject was in­ves­ted in the pre­pa­ra­ti­on. Our dai­ly rou­ti­ne af­ter han­ding in the pro­ject con­sis­ted of the pre­pa­ra­ti­on for the oral exam (ma­king a pre­sen­ta­ti­on) and af­ter work a lear­ning ses­si­on in the lear­ning of­fice with Open End.  

The­se lear­ning ses­si­ons con­sis­ted of old IHK exams, IHK lear­ning cards with which we took oral exams and our fri­end and hel­per: the white­board. The exams gave us to­pics that we dis­cus­sed again as a group. Our thoughts for this were main­ly re­cor­ded on the white­board to vi­sua­li­ze the to­pics and to dis­cuss them again brief­ly the next day. So we re­vi­si­ted non-tech­ni­cal to­pics such as trade cal­cu­la­ti­ons and forms of or­ga­ni­sa­ti­on as well as the tech­ni­cal are­as such as UML, RAID, SQL etc.  

The day of the exam star­ted for us al­re­a­dy at 5 am. We met at the TecAlliance par­king lot and then dro­ve from the­re tog­e­ther – with masks of cour­se – to Würz­burg. Du­ring the dri­ve we dis­cus­sed many to­pics and tried to calm our ner­ves.  

Al­most punc­tual­ly at 8 o’­clock they star­ted to ex­plain the pro­ce­du­re to us. We star­ted with the Ho­li­stic Task 1 (pro­fes­sio­nal qua­li­fi­ca­ti­ons), for which we had 90 min time. Af­ter­wards the­re was a 30 mi­nu­te break and then we wro­te the Ho­li­stic Task 2 (core qua­li­fi­ca­ti­ons) and the WISO (eco­no­mics social stu­dies). At about 13 o’­clock we fi­nis­hed and were al­lo­wed to go home.  

Now we con­ti­nue to work di­li­gent­ly on the pre­pa­ra­ti­on for our oral exam and are very ex­ci­ted about the re­sults.
