This is an oral exam. Up to 9 students take the exam during one slot.
In the beginning of the exam you will get two questions (may be multi-part questions). At least one of the questions will be based on your paper topic (usually both). You will then have time to prepare your answers. You can use any materials at this time. However, when you come to answer the questions (and any follow-up questions that arise), you can only use your notes. You are free to leave once you have answered your questions.
