In contrast to school, examinations are not as frequent at university. Possible examination formats include written exams, term papers, presentations, protocols, oral exams, or practical coursework. In each case, the teaching staff members determine the form in which the examination will take place. Most examinations take place at the end of the semester or at the beginning of the semester break and cover the material of the modules attended.
