Hello Guys
I do have following question.
Suppose on the exam there is a question with 5 possible answers of witch 2 are correct. First possibility:
[1]. I choose one correct one wrong.
[2]. I choose one correct, but dont answer the second one.
Shall i get any points for [1] or [2]. How is the system organized? I must answer all the correct ones?
Thank you in advance.

There is no partial grading in the exam; if you get one option wrong then the entire question is considered wrong.

- Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth. - What truth? - That there is no spoon!!!

If the question states there are 2 correct answers you will get points only if you provide 2 answers (no more, no less) and both are correct.
If you provide too many or too few answers or any provided answer is incorrect the question is marked as incorrectly answered.
As there is only 1 point per question towards the graded total that means the question is now answered incorrectly.
In this the exam is different from what you may be used to!

Yes, that's it: you have to get 52% of the problems each 100% correct.

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.
