More information

For the course Introduction to Quantum Physics (3BQX0), an exam training will be organized. You will do the exam of June 2019 under the supervision of three trainers. The trainers are students who have passed this course with very good results. They will select a couple of questions from the exam that are considered difficult and they will dive into them together with you.

The training is free of charge, but we would like you to subscribe such that we can keep track of the amount of people that will join.

Nb: do not do the exam of June 2019 on beforehand! You will do this during the training. The exam can be found via the exam archive of STOOR. (physstorstoor) and it will also be sent to the participants.

The training will take place online, we will be using Discord. You can download and install it for free, or use the web-based version. The invite for the server will be sent to you via mail.
